Mark your calendars now for the American-Scandinavian Foundation 2020 Spring Gala on Friday, April 24 at The Plaza, NYC! This elegant black-tie event each year attracts an international guest list and stands out as a unique celebration of the ASF mission and history.


At this year’s special event, the Gala will celebrate the 20th anniversary of Scandinavia House, as well as the visionaries who were instrumental in having it built.


The evening will also feature the presentation of the Niels Poulson Award to ASF Trustee, Lena Biörck Kaplan, in recognition of her outstanding dedication and service to the Foundation, as well as her initiation of the Scandinavia House project when she served as President from 1989-1996. In addition, the ASF Cultural Award will be presented to the celebrated architect James Stewart Polshek, who designed Scandinavia House and has been a tireless promoter of the Scandinavian aesthetic throughout his distinguished career.
