The Mid-Winter Gala is a black tie optional* dinner and dance for both ACIR and International Club of Atlanta (ICA) members and non-member friends. It is an opportunity to spend an evening together with those members of the Atlanta community who share a strong desire to remain aware of international events shaping our world today and learning how we collectively can live with one another to accomplish our shared aspirations of peace and understanding for all humanity. Please join us for this very special event which will include a cocktail hour, a delicious meal, a 16-piece live orchestra, and dancing.
