EUR 1500 raised in 2016 for principal charities

Dec 16, 2016
Through two AmCham events this year we have raised EUR 1500 to support charities that help promote a healthy development of Latvia's children and their rights to grow up in a family environment.
 
On December 6 at our Annual Christmas Reception and Charity Raffle EUR 1050 were collected in benefit of our three principal charities: Latvian Foster Family Association, RMHC Latvija's Care Mobile and SOS Children's Villages in Latvia. In addition, AmCham members prepared personalized gifts for Latvian Foster Families.

During the Annual Chili Cook-Off in October over EUR 450 of proceeds were collected to suport the work of Latvian Foster Family Association, RMHC Latvija's Care Mobile and SOS Children's Villages in Latvia.

As a result many children in Latvia will be able to receive free healthcare services and family-based support.

We are greatful to all the supporters for donating goods and services to support the raffles. We are grateful to 3M, Amber Spa Boutique HotelAlbert Hotel, Blind Dreams, Brain Games, CBRE, Grand Palace HotelInbalansIndian RajaLatvia ToursMercure HotelOrkla Confectionery & Snacks LatvijaPullman Riga Old Town HotelRadisson Blu Hotel Daugava, Radisson Blu Hotel Latvija, Restaurant Klīversala and Santa Maria who made those events so special.
