CanCham Christmas – Tuesday, December 4th, 2018 supporting “Nāc līdzās!”




Dear CanCham Members and Friends,

Christmas is a very special time of year - a time for family, friends and giving. We at CanCham would like to meet our friends and business colleagues sharing the spirit of the season, a glass of hot wine, a buffet dinner, and build on the new relationships established during the past year, while still remembering those less fortunate than ourselves.

We will have a raffle in support of the Foundation “Nāc līdzās!” (Come along!) which supports children and young people with disabilities to integrate into society, and helps their parents’ understand the problems that they face. Vaira Vīķe-Freiberga is the patroness of the charity. See Sarma Freiberga, Chairman of the Board, will be on hand to tell us about “Nāc līdzās!”. 

Some talented members of “Nāc līdzās!” will provide a short concert.
