AmCham Annual Thanksgiving Family Dinner 2016
On November 25, over 180 AmCham members, partners and invited guests came together to celebrate one of the biggest holidays in the American culture – Thanksgiving! As per our good tradition, the event was held at the premises of one of our Charter Gold Members, Radisson Blu Sky Hotel.
The event program featured several speakers (Indrek Laul, Nicole Johnson, Michael Smith), a plentiful buffet with all the traditional Thanksgiving favorites including roasted turkey, spiced pumpkin pie, roasted vegetables, maple mashed sweet potatoes and more…
All the children got to enjoy the Happy Meals kindly provided by McDonald’s. During this evening , the children also had a special program organized for them. The program included face paintings, watching cartoons, coloring and playing different games organized by invited animators. During the evening all our guests also had a chance to take beautiful family portraits.
As Thanksgiving is not just about counting the blessings and celebrating the harvest, but also the time to remember the less fortunate, AmCham continued with the tradition of holding the charity raffle to support those in need. We are thrilled to announce that this year we were able to raise €2,145 at the raffle!!!
The evening concluded with fun fellowship, live music and a special surprise in the end – all of our participants walked out with a whole box of “Amerikaner” ice-cream sponsored by Balbiino!!
We would like to thank the Radisson Blu team for their help in organizing this event! A huge thank you to our event sponsors, Coca-Cola, McDonald’s, Altia Eesti and Balbiino Ice Creams for their support! Our sincerest gratitude also goes to all the raffle contributors who donated the prizes and helped us raise this significant amount!
Are you already looking forward to the next Thanksgiving?! We are!!!!
