Fundraiser for the City Museum of Vukovar SUCCESS
Dear members of AMAC Mid-Atlantic and the Croatian-American Chamber of
It is a pleasure to announce that thanks to your generosity we managed
to raise $11,110 for the City Museum of Vukovar, at the fundraiser held
in the restaurant The Terrace in the Sky in Manhattan, on May 1, 2005.
The fundraiser was organized by AMAC Mid-Atlantic
http://www.amac-ma.org/headlines/ , with the cooperation of the CACC
http://www.croamchamber.org/ . Thirty donations have been received,
ranging from $25 to $2,500. They were collected mostly during the
fundraiser, but some major donations were also sent by the people who
were unable to attend. Each donation, regardless of its size, is
valuable since it was given from the heart, and will be received with
gratitude by the people of Vukovar. To them, the funds we raised will
mean a great deal not only financially but also, and perhaps even more,
morally and emotionally, a tangible evidence that the Croatian
community here, although far away, stands with them.
The donations will soon be sent to Vukovar. Every donor will be
personally recognized and thanked in writing by the director of the
Vukovar museum, Mrs. Ruzica Maric. Our hope is to repeat this
fundraiser next year, and make it a regular annual event.
Thank you all once again, and have a great summer.
Zlatko Bacic, President
