LCCUK’s President Mr Egonas Jakimavičius commented: “We are proud that our Annual Charity Ball has become a cherished tradition. We are also proud that at last year’s Charity Ball we raised over sixty five thousand pounds for ‘Mother’s Union, the non-profit organisation, established to help children affected by cancer and their families. I believe we can do even better this year and help ‘The Charity Fund of Vilnius University Children’s Hospital’. This is also a wonderful opportunity to acquire incredible experiences, prizes and important works of Lithuanian art at our charity auction, to enjoy performances by famous Lithuanian musicians and have a good time at one of London’s most celebrated, iconic and exclusive venues – The Savoy Hotel.”
The purpose of Charity Ball 2017 is to raise funds for The Charity Fund of Vilnius University Children’s Hospital. We are proud to announce that all proceeds from the evening will be donated to the charity fund.
