This Saturday the school held a fundraiser at Lithuanian Embassy in Washington D.C. Our ambassador Rolandas Kriščiūnas opened the evening. He wished the best of luck to our school in realizing our goals. Actress Renata Loman guided us through the activities and told us about the history of the embassy, the importance it held for Lithuania and thanked our sponsors. The evening was delightful: we listened to a jazz performance by "Capitol Lab Band", folklore group "Jorė" sang some beautiful Lithuanian songs, while dancers from Baltimore group "Malūnas" taught all the guest some Lithuanian dances. Everyone had a chance to bid on some great prizes during the silent auction and try some Lithuanian food. It was a successful evening: the atmosphere was welcoming and warm and the guests were happy.
