The Valley Forge Military Academy and College Color Guard
Held once a year in a private New York City Club and always centred around a Royal Personage.
Madame Barbara de Portago, Foundation President, invites one of her Royal friends from Europe. The Royal Highness receives patrons during the Taittinger Champagne Reception and then goes on to speak for fifteen minutes, no podium or slides, during the seated and placé dinner about a subject of their choice both personal and historical.
The One Hundred Cadets of The Valley Forge Military Academy & College are present to escort the ladies attending on their own, strike up the Band, send in the Color Guard and Trumpet in the Royal Cortège!
The event is limited to two hundred Patrons. The tables seat six, are ideal for conversation and getting to know each other during the evening.
The evening features a “Fin de Soirée” at a chosen later location to dance the night and/or morning away.
The Top Seat Category includes the at-home Luncheon the day before, the Benefit and the intimate seated dinner the next night in a private New York City residence. These invitations are in the presence of The Royal Highness.
The attire is Black Tie for men and all-out Evening Dress for women.
