Capital City Ball VIP Reception
On Nov. 14, Vice Skracic, Acting Ambassador of the Republic of Croatia, hosted a reception for invited guests, donors and sponsors of the 2011 Capital City Ball, which is held the Saturday before Thanksgiving. Board member Liz Sara thanked supporters. The Capital City Ball raises funds to combat human trafficking. In his remarks, the acting ambassador said that Croatia is a transit country for trafficking and is working with various groups to raise awareness of this scourge. Beneficiary organizations in and around D.C. are seeking to “bridge the gaps” by providing counseling, therapy and legal services to victims of trafficking. Capital City Ball founder and co-chair Bruce Freis said that the ball, now in its fifth year, is a “great party” that supports and creates synergy among its charity partners.
