Their Royal Highnesses Crown Prince Alexander and Crown Princess Katherine of Serbia were guests of honour at the 25th Anniversary celebration of Lifeline Humanitarian Organization, Chicago, whose patron is Her Royal Highness Crown Princess Katherine, on Saturday in Chicago. Their Royal Highnesses were accompanied by their grandchildren Michael, Stephanie and Michael her husband. This event was a huge success, gathering several hundred people, who helped raise funds for orphanages, shelters, schools and hospitals in Serbia.
Addressing guests and organizers HRH Crown Princess Katherine emphasized:
“We have 25 years of committed humanitarian action behind us and should all be proud of it. Thank you for your effort and commitment. More work is ahead of us for the next 25 years.
Together we can do a lot, and together we will respond to requests, from orphanages, old people’s homes, homeless’ shelters, health care institutions, individuals and all those who need help.”
Dr. Milena Tatic Bajich, President of the Board of Lifeline Humanitarian Organization Chicago said in her speech: “We are all blessed to be able to do the work we do. We help many through our efforts and the really big reward is in creating a ripple effect. Changing lives, alters many many communities.”
The event was attended by the Serbia’s General Consul General in Chicago Dejan Radulović. Guests enjoyed the program which contained video clips of efforts throughout the years, several speeches and the Princess Katherine Award presented the Princess Katherine award to the John and Mildred Wuchenich Foundation for their continued support and humanitarian aid. The Union League Club of Chicago was a delightful venue for a silent auction toward the end of the program.
