Libertas Foundation Fundraiser
On January 31, 2004, another Gala Dinner/Fundraising and celebration of Sveti Vlaho - St. Blaise, Patron Saint of Dubrovnik is coming. Mark your calendar and reserve this evening for fabulous Croatian food, dances, music and friendship.
To commemorate our 13th anniversary at St. Anthony's Croatian Center in Los Angeles, Libertas Foundation will publish a program and souvenir book. We invite you and all Croatian-American businesses, organizations and their friends to help in our fundraising effort by placing an ad, greeting, letter, poem, recipe or anything that may be interesting for our Souvenir Book.
This event is a sell out every year -- we anticipate over 450 people from the Greater Los Angeles area to attend our "festa", which has become one of the premiere events in the Croatian- American community of Southern California. The souvenir book will be distributed to all attendees and advertisers, giving you and your business tremendous exposure and recognition.
We are pleased to report that our scholarship fund, which awards financially challenged students money to attend local trade schools, awarded five deserving students $1000 each in Dubrovnik this past August. The names of the students are: Stijepo Mage, Josip Kurelja, Ivan Zec, Miso Tepsic and Jozo Cupic.
Another project which we supported alongside the Rotary Club, Wheelchair Foundation and the Croatian community was the donation of 240 wheelchairs. These wheelchairs were delivered and distributed to needy people all over Croatia in August and September of this year.
Currently we continue to raise funds to help the needy people of Knin. Flour is one essential item that is greatly needed by these people. By buying flour from local Croatian farmers and donating it to the people, we help not only the less fortunate but also the Croatian farming community.
Though we have all accomplished and contributed generously, we are continuing with these programs as long as there is need for it and ask for your help and support in any way to make these programs most beneficial to the needy people of Croatia.
We thank all of you that have helped in the past and hope you will continue to support our humanitarian projects. Since we are all volunteers, we can assure you that every dollar you donate will reach the people and charity of your choice.
The holidays are around the corner. At this time of joy and celebration let's remember our less fortunate brothers and sisters and share the joy of Christmas with them.
Please send your tax deductible donation as soon as possible so that we can buy and send the food to Knin by Christmas.
Your generosity and continued support is greatly appreciated.
MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR!
SRETAN BOZIC I NOVA GODINA!
