On November 19, AmCham families and friends gathered at the Marriott in Copenhagen for the ever popular Family Thanksgiving Dinner.

In all, more than 230 adults and kids of all ages were treated to an authentic American Thanksgiving experience, complete with turkey, stuffing and pumpkin pie.

Throughout the evening, kids kept busy with a variety of activities supervised by volunteers from the Danish Institute for Study Abroad (DIS). The Microsoft Xbox One games including the new and powerful Xbox One-X console and Coca-Cola's photo booth were popular favorites among both children and adults.

The pre-dinner program was kicked off with 'America the Beautiful' sung this year by the talented country singer Tamra Rosanes. U.S. Embassy Chargés Laura Lochman then welcomed guests by sharing her thoughts on celebrating Thanksgiving in Denmark.

Following dinner, DIS student speaker Samantha Mazzarelli from Villanova University in Pennsylvania, reflected on her life in Denmark and the things that she was thankful for since coming here. 

The main feature of any Thanksgiving evening is the food, and Marriott Chef Jamie Lever and his team did not disappoint. The authentic meal included free range turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy, not to mention a scrumptious dessert buffet complete with pumpkin pie and cheesecake. Beverages included American wines from AmericanWine.dk, soft drinks from Coca-Cola and Brooklyn Beer provided by Carlsberg.

The evening concluded with the highly anticipated Thanksgiving Charity Raffle, proceeds from which go towards AmCham’s Education Fund. The grand prize was two round trip tickets to the U.S. from Air France/KLM/Delta.
