Alexandra Mora and Walter Wolf attended a reception at the residence of the French Consul General of France for New Orleans, Jean-Claude Brunet, and his wife, Muriel, to celebrate Euro-American friendship. They are pictured here with Eliza Brierre, Program Director of the World Trade Center. The reception was part of a week of activities sponsored by the French Consulate of New Orleans, and the Alliance Francaise of New Orleans, to raise public awareness of the EU. This is the second year that New Orleans is hosting this event. Alliance Francaise is a local non-profit that raises awareness of French culture in New Orleans. The special Euro-American Celebration was from May 9-12, featuring a variety of activities, many of them free to the public. Besides support from the French Consulate, this event was made possible with support from the Delegation of the European Union to the U.S., and the Honorary Consuls of the EU countries in New Orleans. New Orleans is one of only three cities nationwide selected to host such a series.
