Leading business people and celebrities in America’s “Big Apple”, New York, will get to hear about Australia’s largest family owned brewery, Coopers at a special black tie gala event on Wall Street this Friday (January 18).
The function is part of the G’Day USA celebrations, which this year includes functions in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Sacramento, New York, Chicago, Houston and Washington DC.
Coopers’ Chairman, Mr Glenn Cooper, will speak on “Excellence in Business, Celebrating 150 years as Australia’s largest family owned brewery.”
Mr Cooper said the G’Day USA gala dinner was an excellent opportunity to inform American business people and celebrities about Coopers’ history and recent developments which have seen Coopers emerge as the largest Australian-owned brewer.
“Coopers has a solid export market in the US, which has a highly developed craft beer culture,” he said.
“We see the US as a strong potential market in the future and this is an opportunity for us to tell our story to a wider audience.”
The black tie gala is being hosted by Australian musician David Campbell, with entertainment provided by singers Jessica Mauboy, a leading actor in the critically acclaimed Australian film The Sapphires”, and world renowned soprano Greta Bradman.
The menu has been prepared by Australian celebrity chef Guy Grossi.
The dinner will be preceded by the Coopers Brewery Cocktail Reception, hosted by Coopers.
Mr Cooper will be joined on stage by Australian journalist Michael Ware, who will be honoured for excellence in journalism for his front-line coverage of the war in the Middle East.
