Virtual event: Christmas Charity

Over years our Annual Christmas Charity event has become one of our signature events, bringing together members to appreciate your contributions and to help those in need. 

Although we won’t be able to hold an in-person event this year, we don’t want you to miss the holiday spirit. We invite you to save the date for our virtual Christmas Charity event on Thursday, December 10 at 15:00.

The program will include Member of the Year Award announcement, charity raffle, New Year and Season's greetings and spending a great time together. We will take a moment to recognize our most active and supportive members, express our gratitude for your continued support and toast to a successful year ahead!

We will hold an online charity raffle in benefit of our five principal charities: Bezvests.lv, Latvian Foster Family Association, Pink Train Foundation, RMHC Latvija and SOS Children’s Villages. Tickets are be available:

• EUR 15 EUR/one ticket

• EUR 50/5 tickets

• EUR 100/10 tickets

Please let us know how many tickets you would like to purchase and we will follow up with an invoice. The list of prizes will be updated. All proceeds from the ticket sale will be evenly distributed to support these charities.

Admission to our Virtual Charity event is complimentary to members and the U.S. Embassy staff, but registration is required. If you would like to support the event or donate a product from your company for the raffle, please contact our Program & Design Manager Evija at: + 371 26423970 or evija.gleske@amcham.lv.

This year has not been easy, but let’s remain positive about different ways we can navigate through these turbulent times together!
