AmCham co-sponsored the 239th U.S. Independence Day celebrations on July 02, 2015 at Hotel Taj Palace, New Delhi with a rather interesting theme – the American national sport, baseball. The venue was decorated with baseball jerseys and guests were served typical baseball game refreshments, like hotdogs and popcorn. The winner of The Million Dollar Arm, Dinesh Patel, who went on to pitch for the Pittsburgh Pirates was also present. Adding flair to the celebration of independence was a stellar performance by the US Army’s 25th Infantry Division Band, Paradise Brass, which came all the way from Hawaii. U.S. Ambassador Richard Verma welcomed the guest of honor General V K Singh, Minister of State for External Affairs, Government of India. Over 500 people took part in the celebrations. Ambassadors of Ireland, Austria, High Commissioner of Cyprus, and Minister Counsellor of British High Commission were also present.
