AmCham Thanksgiving Charity Dinner
Date(s) - 27/11/2019
4:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Sofia Tech Park
The American Chamber of Commerce has been hosting the traditional Thanksgiving Charity Dinner for 15 years. This landmark event of the Chamber is a sitting dinner with a traditional American Thanksgiving Menu, live music and a special focus on fundraising. Traditionally over 250 AmCham members, U.S. citizens and official guests honor the event and contribute to the charity initiative.
The main goal is raising funds for “Get Ready to Succeed” and “We Can” Programs of the BCause Foundation (AmCham member). AmCham members are generous and long term contributors to the program, not only with funding, but by greeting and encouraging students in person at Thanksgiving dinners.
Fundraising for the event will occur in several ways:
- Corporate Sponsorship
- All surplus from entrance fee
- Direct public personal or corporate donations to the fund
- Corporate table booking for BGN 2,400
- Selling of raffle tickets
At home, at Thanksgiving dinner we can hear a lot about what our loved ones are thankful about. “I am most thankful for my family and friends. I would not be who I am without them – they love me and they give me the confidence to follow my dreams.”
As a community of AmCham members we were able to help many other, less fortunate people become thankful for the chance to have a better life. A chance which was brought to them by AmCham’s Thanksgiving Charity to Get Ready to Succeed and We Can funds.
Since 2008 our members had contributed for getting education, better start in life and personal happiness of more than 350 boys and girls all over the country. Orphans, disabled, ignored as they were before, they are now doctors, lawyers, economists or chefs and workers – all with independent lives and hearts that want to pass the good on.
We are proud to present their stories and what they have become.
