AmCham’s annual Thanksgiving Charity Dinner brings members and partners together over great food, good wine, and the spirit of good will.

An annual member favorite, the highlight of the evening is the charity auction. Thanks to the generous support of sponsoring member companies and donations, auction proceeds will go to a designated charitable partner.

Indeed, we feel there’s no better way to kick off the holiday season than bringing the AmCham community together behind a great cause – and great food!

The AmCham Thanksgiving Charity Dinner is held in November each year. We are following all COVID-19 developments closely, and will hold this year’s event in strict accordance with the most current government guidelines.

AmCham members and guests once again gathered at Akershus Festning’s Artillery Loft to celebrate another memorable Thanksgiving dinner. After a brief welcoming and ceremonial cutting of the turkey by Ambassador White, over 140 guests were served a traditional Thanksgiving feast including mashed potatoes, gravy, cranberry sauce, green bean casserole, sweet potatoes and of course, turkey. The meal, accompanied by (California Wines) was finished off with pumpkin pie and sweet pecan sauce.

Over the course of the meal, entertaining and insightful words of thanks were provided by economist (name) and Conservative parliament member Peter Gitmark.

Following the dinner, guests joined for after dinner drinks and waited in anticipation for the charitable raffle drawing. With numerous prizes including Icelandair’s roundtrip tickets to Boston or Denver, this year’s raffle proceeds again benefited Kirkens Bymisjon, and donated 40,000 NOK for the charity.

As always, AmCham would like to thank its sponsors, members and guests for helping to make this a wonderful evening, and looks forward to seeing everyone again next year.
