After the Serbian anthem „God of Justice“, the student Bisera Tasic, who was one of the organizers of the charity evening, welcomed the guests. Milka Tadic, also a student, presented the student’s organization, whose aim is to preserve the Serbian tradition, culture and language. The organization turned to charity work, because of the responsibility of young people and the possibility to help.
