Our 2013 Annual Gala & Awards Ceremony honoring PSA Peugeot-Citroen took place at the Grosse Pointe Yacht Club on April 19, 2013. We were joined by more than 180 people, including a large number of influential decision makers of the Michigan French-American business community.
At this occasion, we honored PSA Peugeot Citroen and Mr. Barnaby Noble, Vice President of the GM-PSA Alliance, for their efforts at forging an alliance with General Motors Company and shaping the future of the automotive industry.
We were also pleased to welcome very distinguished guests Mr. Douglas Smith, Senior Vice President of the Michigan Economic Development Corporation, Dr. Ganesh Muthappan of Médecins Sans Frontières / Doctors Without Borders, Mr. Pascal Goachet, Honorary Consul of France in Michigan, and Mr. Emmanuel Dupouy, Economic Counselor, Consulate General of France in Chicago.
With the support of our sponsors and guests, FACC-Michigan was pleased to also be able to contribute by donation to the good work and noble mission of Médecins Sans Frontières / Doctors Without Borders. Distinguished guest Dr. Ganesh Muthappan shared with us his personal experience as a doctor serving in Sudan and the compelling story of Achol, a girl suffering from tetanus whose life was saved by the aid brought by MSF / Doctors Without Borders thanks to the support of the public at large. We invite you to please enjoy the full presentation provided by Dr. Muthappan and see Achol on page #26.
