Annual General Meeting and Reception

Business/festive attire requested.

Our holiday party and annual general meeting will be held Thursday, December 8th at 6pm at the beautiful George F. Baker Houses in Carnegie Hill, the highest point in Manhattan. We'll celebrate the season and have the opportunity to explore the immaculately preserved 1920s townhouse designed by Delano & Aldrich and built for one of New York's most important bankers. Our event will be in what is now the private home of Richard H. Jenrette; his foundation, Classical American Homes Preservation Trust, is also based here.

Please join us—we'd love to see you! We'll raise a glass and share a bite, hear about AFGG's upcoming plans, and spend some time together in a rarefied setting.

A note about George F. Baker: George F. Baker and J. P. Morgan, close friends and frequent allies, were America's most prominent bankers in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Mr. Baker was the long-time Chairman and principal stockholder of The First National Bank of New York, which later became First National City Bank and then Citibank, as it is called today. Mr. Baker was known for his philanthropy, including building the entire original campus of the Harvard Business School in Boston during the 1920s.
