AmCham is an invaluable resource that keeps us up to date with business issues and opportunities.
Mantautas Paskevicius, Country Manager of Strategic Staffing Solutions International
Through two AmCham events this year we have raised EUR 3320 to support charities that help promote a healthy development of Latvia's children and their rights to grow up in a family environment.
On November 22 at Thanksgiving Dinner the charity raffle and silent auction was held and EUR 2620 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.
During the Annual Chili Cook-Off in September over EUR 700 of proceeds were collected to support 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 Albert Hotel, Amber Beverage Group, Baltic Beach Hotel, Bellevue Park Hotel, CBRE Baltics, Citadele Banka, Dome Hotel & SPA, Grand Palace Hotel, If P&C Insurance AS, Indian Raja, KAH Tequila, Restaurant Kliversala, Linstow Center Management, Mārtiņš Sesks, Microsoft Latvia, Orkla Confectionary & Snacks Latvija, Radisson Blu Latvija Conference & SPA Hotel, Pullman Riga Old Town Hotel, Radisson Blu Hotel Daugava, Rocket Bean Café, Santa Maria, Tex Mex Republic and Woocoon.
