Christmas greetings were presented by Sharon Hudson-Dean, Charge D'Affaires of the U.S. Embassy. The event was hosted by AmCham Vice President Arnis Kakulis.
Our hearts and souls were warmed by the performance of the soloists and choir of Valmiera SOS Children's Villages.
This year we supported three charities that help promote a healthy development of Latvia's children and their rights to grow up in a family environment. 900 EUR were collected in the charity raffle which will benefit the following charities: Latvian Foster Family Association, RMHC Latvija's Care Mobile and SOS Children's Villages in Latvia. Through two AmCham events this year we raised EUR 1500 for AmCham's three principal charities.
The possibility to meet children from SOS Children`s Villages and to hear them sing was a heart touching moment. It was a very special event and got us into the real Christmas spirit.
Thank you to all our members for your continued support throughout this past year!
Thanks to our supporters for wonderful charity raffle prizes provided particularly for this event. Our gratitude goes to Albert Hotel, DiatomArt, Dome Hotel & SPA, ESPA Riga, ETMO, Grand Palace Hotel, Microsoft Latvia, New Riga Theatre, Radisson Blu Daugava Hotel, R.B. Management and Taka SPA who made this event special.
I look forward to promoting stronger U.S.-Latvia ties and working with AmCham members to ensure Latvia is a trusted destination for international business.
