The Chosen Few is an elite society of event professionals founded by legendary event producer, Harriette Rose Katz. This prestigious group of industry leaders introduces a new measure of excellence for the event industry and recognizes the best businesses in New York in the categories of catering, photography, invitations, entertainment, music, floral, tents, lighting, and event design.

For more than 35 years, Harriette Rose Katz’s award-winning event planning consultancy, Gourmet Advisory Services, has gained an impeccable reputation worldwide for creating extraordinary events and celebrations. Drawing on Katz’s three decades of setting the standard for New York parties, weddings, and special events, The Chosen Few inducts membership for excellence to a select few event professionals based on creativity, integrity, excellence and financial well-being.

The official launch party and inductee ceremony of The Chosen Few last week at Le Cirque was absolutely incredible – from the venue to the amazing group of people, it was such an honor to be part of this innermost circle of industry professionals. I’m proud!

A huge congratulations to all of the 2014 inductees of The Chosen Few!
