Traditional American Thanksgiving Dinner in Bulgaria

For 15 years the American Chamber of Commerce in Bulgaria has hosted a traditional American Thanksgiving dinner in Bulgaria – but the dinner is more than a meal.  Each dinner raises funds for Bulgarian charity.  This year funds raised will go to the Get Ready to Succeed Fund of the Bulgarian Charities Aid Foundation. Since launching in 2006, the fund has awarded 1,250 annual scholarships worth over BGN 1.9 million to orphaned students with excellent performance in secondary schools and universities.  Ambassador Rubin commended AmCham for its commitment to community initiatives, saying “The act of giving back has a profound and lasting impact on the individual giver, on the family that gives back – and on the community that gives back.”
