FLAVORS OF SERBIA IN CHICAGO
Hundreds of supporters and friends gathered at The Murphy on East Erie Street for Lifeline Chicago's Flavors of Serbia on Saturday, October 20th. "It was really a wonderful afternoon," said Doloris Lakich of Schererville, Indiana.
In addition to Serbian wines and delicious traditional food, the entertainment included the internationally acclaimed Talija Folklore Group from Serbia. They wowed the crowed with their performance. During the rest of the afternoon, Mismo Orchestra provided music. Several numbers were performed by the Surprise Serbian Choir, volunteers from several Chicago-area choirs who join together in support of Lifeline.
"We can't do this alone," said Lifeline Chicago President Kathy Fanslow. "These underprivileged children and adults need our help. We can only help them if you help us."
Lifeline helps the people of Serbia regardless of religion or ethnic origin. "We provide medical equipment to hospitals and clinics, and send desperately needed supplies to orphanages," said Treasurer Melanie Sever. The Flavors event raises funds for specific needs or campaigns as well as money to cover shipping expenses of donated items.
The cost of shipping a container of goods to Serbia is over $7,000. "We don't want donors to pay for that. We raise the money for that. When someone gives us money for an orphan or a hospital, 100% of that donation goes to the needy."
President Fanslow told the crowd of the condition of a kitchen in one particular orphanage she visited in June. "It was horrible, unbelievable." David and Nada Stevens of Munster, Indiana, visited that same orphanage on their recent trip to Serbia and were appalled by the conditions.
At the Flavors event, Mr. Stevens took the microphone and appealed to the crowd. "If we all just give a little, even $10, it will make a difference. Nada and I are giving $10,000 to get it started." Just a few minutes following his announcement, Richard Fanslow announced that he was matching the donation with another $10,000."
The Silent Auction raised additional funds. A Live Auction also took place where the successful bidders won a trip for two to Serbia including airfare and dinner at the White Palace with the Royal Couple, an autographed tennis racket signed by Novak Djokovic and a tennis ball signed by Djokovic.
At the end of the afternoon, Hereditary Prince Peter who was the honored guest pulled the winner of the Super Bowl XLVII Raffle, which was a near sellout. Congratulations go to the lucky winner Sonja Mancich of Highland, Indiana.
While the government of Serbia is working vigorously to reduce the number of people living below the poverty level, to re-house displaced persons and to rebuild the country's health care system, it remains Lifeline's role to help.
The Board and supporters of Lifeline Chicago through events such as this renew hope. It sends a message that the outside world still cares about the people of Serbia.
