On the 28th of November the PINK foundation celebrated its fifth anniversary with a fundraising dinner in Best Western Expo Hotel – Sofia. 60 guests, supporters and sponsors of PINK, attended the event.
Some of the attendees were embassy employees and others from different companies and organizations based in Sofia. The hall was decorated in pink, and the guests received gifts of hand-decorated stones with wishes for the men and bracelets made by the girls from the Jewelry and Decoupage Club for the ladies.
The director of PINK – Albena – made a presentation that included information and photos on the achievements of PINK in the past five years. A short speech was held by the founder of the foundation Robert Faber and his wife Rebecca Faber, as well as by one of the sponsors of the foundation – Ivan Valchev from the company Sors Ltd.
Throughout the dinner, the guests also could participate in a silent auction. The items that everyone could bid for were donated by friends of the foundation and we are happy that almost everything got sold. Special thanks to MOMA restaurant, RIU Pravets golf and spa resort, Spa Demetra, Nadejda Milenkova and Silvi Basseva for donating the items for the silent auction. We also want to express gratitude to the people who did not make it to the event but supported us with donations for the needs of the foundation.
The surprise of the evening were four of the children who are included in the PINK program to perform a traditional Bulgarian dance –‘horo’, wearing traditional folklore attire. The children take folk dance classes in their home town of Tran. They arrived in Sofia for the event together with their choreographer Emilia Milanova.
The team of the PINK Foundation cordially thanked all guests and the children for being part of the event and for all the support in the past years. “It was very exciting for me to see all the guests together with the PINK team gathered in the name of our big, pure and sincere dream. It is the dream of giving the Bulgarian child a chance for a meaningful and quality life by giving him the opportunity to develop their potential. If there is something that makes me keep going forward with the kids, it`s hope. The hope that with our team we will see good results in their lives, no matter the effort, struggles and challenges, “said Albena.
