Live Auction at Blossom of Hope’s yearly charity fundraising gala – exclusively taking place in-person for gala participants on October 9th from the beautiful Palace of the Grand Dukes!
Blossom of Hope is IWAV’s (International Women’s Association of Vilnius) yearly campaign to improve breast cancer care in Lithuania. Blossom of Hope 2021 #PinkWaveLT campaign’s purpose again in 2021 is to focus on diagnosis and treatment and to raise funds to improve breast cancer outcomes, with the specific goal of covering the cost of one full year of breast tissue markers, critical to optimal care and yet not covered by the State. This year, the importance of our campaign is greatly heightened by the effects of the Coronavirus pandemic on breast cancer diagnosis and treatment in Lithuania.
Having already been official charity partner at Moteru Begimas and Vilniaus Maratonas, Blossom of Hope’s #PinkWaveLT will culminate with our exclusive charity fundraising gala on October 9th, 19:00 at the Palace of the Grand Dukes, taking place during International Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The gala will be an exclusive black-tie masquerade with the theme "A Night in Venice".
This prestigious event is traditionally attended by the Lithuanian and international diplomatic, medical and business communities who support our campaign.
The Honorary Patron of the event: the First Lady of Lithuania Mrs. Diana Nausėdienė. We are additionally honoured that Her Excellency Ambassador of Finland Arja Inkeri Makkonen has come on board as our latest Goodwill Ambassador, alongside Professor Sonata Jarmalaitė, Director of the National Cancer Institute, and Lithuanian Olympic Committee Chair Daina Gudzinevičiūtė. Moreover, high-ranking members of the diplomatic communities from various countries will be attending.
His Excellency Ambassador of the US Robert Gilchrist and Lithuanian journalist, TV Host and Star of Lithuanian Cooking Beata Nicholson will be our hosts for the evening.
