Are you interested in enjoying tasty treats with some good company?

We would like to invite you to sample these and other tasty desserts at History Bar next Thursday. The proceeds will go to charity so we’ll essentially be eating for a good cause.

You may have heard of a French tradition celebrating "king's day" which appears in January where a king or queen for the day is chosen through the delectable practice of pie eating. The traditional pie known as "Galette Des Rois" contains some small item known as a "fève" the finder of which gets a paper crown establishing them as the king or queen of the day.

The charity in question is Udruga Promijeni Svijet which is active around Croatia. The charity has two main projects:
1) Importing and delivering humanitarian aid to those most in need through SOS Banka. We’ve all seen elderly persons hunting through the trash and there are many more cases around Croatia of families, single parents and disabled persons in dire need of any help they can get.
2) Therapy for children through laughter. Clowns and artists volunteer to bring a few hours of fun to children in hospitals, centers for the disabled and orphanages. Laughter and art programs can work magic for the psychological well lbeing of a child in difficulty.

For more information regarding the charity please see www.promijenisvijet.org or visit our FB page at https://www.facebook.com/PromijeniSvijet?ref=ts&fref=ts

Hope to see you all there!!
