As the wife of William C. Eacho III, the U.S. ambassador to Austria from 2009 to 2013, Donna Eacho promoted American culture and interests through a wide variety of official activities. In concert with the embassy’s protocol office, Donna Eacho planned and oversaw more than 200 events at the embassy, including a massive July 4th party for 1,500 guests and other events for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter.
In 2010, the embassy helped arrange four concerts in Vienna by Clifton Williams, an American classical pianist who first came to the attention of Mrs. Eacho through a neighbor who hosted him to play at a private concert. Other guests at the embassy include Fulbright Scholars, the recipients of a prestigious State Department grant for university students and faculty.
The U.S. Embassy also hosts events to share American culture with the people of Austria. Examples of previous events include a fashion show, a reading of American theatre productions in German, and a panel discussion on women in U.S. elections.
