Successful palacinka party in Chicago

On Saturday, Feb 23rd, Serbs for Serbs held another palacinka party in Chicago. Hosted by brother and sister Nikola (18) & Natalia Josipovic (19), the event was a huge success. Through the sale of t-shirts ($290) and collecting donations ($1,430)we were able to raise $1,720 in total.

We had a great turn-out for the event. A large amount of friends and family came with their children. We also had many first time guests for whom we spent much of the evening introducing and explaining our charity organization and how it works to help impoverished Serbian children and their families.

The palacinke were amazing thanks to Sonja, Goran and Ceca. There was plenty for everyone along with other fruits and pita snacks. We tried, as always, to only use Serbian products for this event, in a show of support for Serbian exports.
We would also like to make a special mention that our host Natalia is a cancer survivor. At 16, she was diagnosed with cancer, and with a lot of support, love and faith in god, she is now cured and helping others!!!
