NTHSA’s First Fundraiser for the “Nikola Tesla in Science Textbooks” Project
The NTHSA held its first ever fundraiser on October 13, 2022 at the Serbian Community Centre in Edmonton. The purpose of the fundraiser was to raise matching funds for this upcoming and important research project in order to qualify for a corresponding grant under the auspices of Mitacs, a national research organization. Our partners included the Calgary Tesla Society, the Nikola Tesla Educational Corporation from Hamilton, Athabasca University and Mitacs.
It was a special evening of speeches, fun, good food and entertainment. The variety show featured performances in music, dancing, singing and a poetry recital. The music ranged from classical to modern electronic compositions. The dancing featured tango and ballet. The food was outstanding with both light and full meals individually packaged and served. There was also an opportunity to purchase some gift items. The raffle and door prizes also added to the excitement of the event.
Our financial goal was met and for this we thank all involved: the Serbian Orthodox Church St. Sava for a beautiful venue and assistance in the program, the performers who shared their talents with us, the Board and the volunteers who made it all possible, and our guests and generous donors for their participation.
