Festive Cheer in Abundance at Christmas Party

With everyone dressed up to the nines (or on their thirty-ones) and in great festive cheer, the annual MAABN Christmas Party at the Pullman Palm Beach Hotel on Marseille’s waterfront was a terrific success yet again this year.

As usual, one of the high points of the evening was the now-legendary MAABN tombola, with great prizes generously donated by our many sponsors. The buffet provided by Eric Lelouch and his team at the Pullman was excellent as usual, with the Champagne flowing freely all evening.

Thanks go to all those who worked so hard to make the evening a success and to all those of you who attended.

See you all at the summer party in June!
