Cocktail reception for Lorenz Merz and Pablo Caprez

The SACCFL hosted a cocktail reception for Lorenz Merz and Pablo Caprez who were personally present to attend the showing of the only Swiss film at this year’s Miami Film Festival.

‘Soul of a Beast’, directed by Lorenz Merz with Pablo Caprez in the leading role, was shown on Saturday, March 5, 2022 at the Silverspot Cinema in Miami Downtown. ‘Soul of a Beast’ is a love story, a pulsating affair set in a crumbling urban world and following a delirious summer rush.

After the film screening and a Q&A session that took place immediately after the showing at the cinema, both Lorenz Merz and Pablo Caprez joined the Swiss American Chamber of Commerce, Florida Chapter for a cocktail reception at the Cubaocho Art Cafe, one of the iconic landmarks in Little Havana, where art, music, dance, cigars and mojitos converge.

We would like to say thank you to the management of Cubaocho who were extremely forthcoming in hosting us and making us feel at home. We would also like to thank Pablo and Lorenz for being such nice guests of honor.

Swiss Miami Golf Open 2022

On March 11, 2022, the Swiss-American Chamber of Commerce, Florida Chapter (SACCFL), has held for the 3rd consecutive time its Swiss Miami Golf Open at the Club at Weston Hills.

On March 11, 2022, the Swiss-American Chamber of Commerce, Florida Chapter (SACCFL), has held for the 3rd consecutive time its Swiss Miami Golf Open at the Club at Weston Hills, home of two magnificent golf courses, created by world-renowned designer, Robert Trent Jones Jr.

This year we teamed up with ‘The First Tee Miami’ an organization that is focused on impacting the lives of young people. They provide educational programs that build character, instill life-enhancing values and promote healthy choices through the game of golf! A substantial portion of the proceeds was donated to this fabulous organization that was present on the day of tournament with three skilled young girls who challenged the players in a ‘Beat the Girl’ competition.

The success of this year’s event would not have been possible without the great support of our sponsors such as Sealand, Bacardi, Norqain, Dufry, Edelweiss, Villiger, Royal Caribbean Group, Ulysse Nardin, Fracht USA or Vontobel. Their contributions whether in the form of generous cash donations or fantastic prices such as an Ulysse Nardin watch, two business class tickets TPA-ZRH-TPA with Edelweiss Air, a cruise to the Caribbean with Royal Caribbean and many more were highly appreciated.

We would also like to thank the Club at Weston Hills who has been supportive in making it easy for us to organize this event. Last but not least, we would like to thank all the participants who made this year’s golf tournament a successful and memorable event.

The 2023 edition of the Swiss-American Golf Open will be announced on SACCFL’s new website in time and we look forward to welcoming every player irrespective of his/her handicap or affiliation to the SACCFL.
