Evening of the Virtues For Our Children Foundation

October 2013

On the 10th of October 2013 at Sofia Event Center in Paradise Center For Our Children Foundation is organizing the fourth edition of the charity event Evening of the Virtues under the patronage of The British Ambassador – HMA Sir Jonathan Allen. The cause of the evening is to raise funds by which to find families for abandoned children with disabilities, and to provide medical and social care of children with special needs.

There are over 1200 children with disabilities in Bulgaria confined in institutions, and thousands more are kept at home. These are children with mental and physical disabilities who require daily care and active rehabilitation, but are mostly craving for love and attention that institutions rarely provide.

For Our Children Foundation expects over 200 guests from the cultural and business circles. They will have the opportunity to experience the unique atmosphere of the event created by dozens of children's drawings, which will be installed in a way never seen before by the hosts Sofia Event Center. This year's Evening of the virtues will be different and inspiring as it combines the traditional auction event with dance performances by leaders from the business, who will take a very new and non-traditional role in the name of For Our Children's cause. They will be an example that each of us can make a difference for the Bulgarian children - we can challenge ourselves to get out of our traditional role, to donate personal time and money. Hosts of the Evening of the Virtues are the journalists Mira Dobreva and Drago Simeonov, who support the causes of For Our Children for years .

Thanks to last year's edition 146 000 BGN were raised which were used to create Family House for small children and to find dozens of foster parents for abandoned kids.

Evening of the Virtues keeps its traditions one of which is to be held under the patronage of a famous person who will stand behind the cause with his/her values and beliefs. In the past editions, patrons of the event were Kristalina Georgieva in 2011, Yordanka Fandakova and Nikolay Mladenov in 2010 and Silva Zurleva in 2009. This year patron of the event is the Bristish Ambassador HMA Jonathan Allen.
