In the City Council of Varaždin, the deputy mayor of Varaždin, Zlatko Horvat, presented Marija Rukavina, the director of the Foundation, with an embroidered portrait of her daughter Ana that was made by Verica Mihalić.
At the initiative of Mrs. Ružica Juras, the president of the Senior Citizens’ Club of Varaždin, Mrs. Verica Mihalić made a portrait in satin stitch which included a few thousand stitches. It took the author almost 6 months to complete the portrait. We are extremely grateful to Mrs. Mihalić for the incredible effort that she made with so much love for our Foundation.
We would also like to take this opportunity to thank Mrs. Ružica Juras, who until now has donated 13,000 kuna to the Foundation from the sale of the CD “My Dear Varaždin”. This money is intended to help tissue type blood samples from potential bone marrow donors.
Also, we would like to thank Mr. Ernest Fišer, the editor-in-chief of the Varaždin newspaper, for helping and promoting the work of our Foundation whenever he can.
Thank you dear friends!
