Amb. Anderson Dinner

The Ryans Host Ambassador Anne Anderson

A warm welcome from the wet weather awaited guests at the stylish home of Pauline & John Ryan in Woodside, California, on Friday November 6th.  Guests gathered to greet Ambassador Anne Anderson at a private dinner in her honor before she headed back to her position as Ireland's Permanent Representative to the United Nations in New York. 

AIF Board Directors Bart Murphy and Bill Walsh joined Consul-General Gerry Staunton and his wife Mary, at this special evening that was also attended by former United States Attorney for the Northern District of California, Kevin Ryan, along with his wife Anne, and mother Kathleen Ryan. 

This was a very special "Eat, drink and be merry" night and the Ryans created a wonderful party complete with a fondue supper in the wine cellar, a lively singsong in the living room and an opportunity to taste several interesting wines. 

Hats off to the Ryans for hosting this memorable and fun evening.
