2017 SAMA Chicago Fundraiser
Amber Cafe, Westmont, Il
May 11th, 2017
2017 SAMA Chicago Fundraiser was a huge success! The event was sponsored by Mr.Branko Palikuća at his restaurant Amber Café in Chicago. We were able to raise over $20,000 which will go toward purchase of new ultrasound system for the Hospital in Užice, Serbia. And donations are still coming in. Big THANK YOU to Branko Palikuća and to all the people [list] who have so generously contributed to make this event such a great success!
The staff at Užice Hospital is very grateful for this donation. Dr. Aleksandra Vračarić, former deputy General Manager of the HC Užice said: “Nemam reči da se zahvalim gospodinu Palikući (već sam kontaktirala sa njim posle donatorske večere) i Vašoj organizaciji, kao i svim donatorima na velikoj pomoći našoj ustanovi.” (I have no words to express our gratitude to Mr. Palikuća, your organization, and all the donors for this donation to our Hospital.”).
We agreed with the staff at the HC Užice that the preferred system is Mindray DC-70. We expect to finish all the paperwork by the end of May, so that this system can be procured.
SAMA would also like to thank Mr. Aleksandar Žigić and Avala Radio for reporting on this great event.
