The Journal The Authority on Global Business in Japan

The Chubu Chapter of the American Chamber of Commerce in Japan (ACCJ) and the Tokai Japan Canada Society (TJCS) joined forces for the 14th time on November 15 to host the annual ACCJ/TJCS Champagne Ball. The latest gathering closed out one decade with a trip to another: the 1980s.

Many of the more than 200 guests arrived at the Hilton Nagoya dressed in attire straight out of the 1980s, setting the tone for a great evening of fun, networking, and recognition. ACCJ-Chubu Volunteer of the Year Ben Eichhorn was honored as part of the festivities.

We would like to thank Red Carpet sponsor Nagoya Toyopet Co., Ltd., Diamond Sponsor Toyota Motor Corporation, Sparkling Sponsors GDI Communications Inc., Hilton Nagoya, and NSR Japan, as well as all sponsors who helped make the Champagne Ball a success. Their generous contributions of raffle prizes and services helped the ACCJ’s ongoing CSR efforts as we raised more than ¥240,000 to support the Chubu Walkathon’s Chubu Children’s Fund initiative.
