About the Event

Blossom of Hope's yearly fundraising gala is back for the 13th year!

This prestigious event is traditionally attended by the Lithuanian and international diplomatic, medical and business communities who support our campaign.  Entertainment, live auctions, food, drink and lotteries are the usual programme.

For the second time in a row, we are honoured that the Honorary Patron of the event is the First Lady of Lithuania Mrs. Diana Nausėdienė. We are further 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.
