Charity dinner in New York for Crown Prince Alexander and Crown Princess Katherine

The Crown Prince and Crown Princess of Serbia continued their passion for giving back during a visit to New York.

Another successful charity dinner was organised by Lifeline New York Humanitarian Organization, whose patron is Crown Princess Katherine. The event was held at Lotos Club in New York last week and attended by Crown Prince Alexander. The goal was to raise funds to support children’s hospitals in Serbia. Prominent guests included His Grace Bishop Irinej of East America, the Consul General of Serbia in New York and many more.

During the dinner, an auction was conducted by famous actor Jack Hartnett.

The guests were addressed by Crown Prince Alexander, who expressed his gratitude to the Board of Directors and benefactors of Lifeline for their generous support. He emphasised the significance of their willingness and eagerness to assist those in need and their unwavering dedication to upholding the life-long mission of Crown Princess Katherine, according to the Royal Palace.

Crown Princess Kathrine addressed the guests and said: “I am very happy to be here today, so together we can provide much-needed aid for children’s hospitals in Serbia. The love and commitment of all supporters of Lifeline Humanitarian Organisation, whose proud patron I am, for those that are in need, is admirable and deserves praise. Your support for our efforts has made it possible for so many lives of the people in Serbia and the Republic of Srpska to be touched and changed for the better. Your devotion is giving us the strength to continue our joint mission to always be with our people and to be where help is most needed.”

Charitable work is close to the hearts of the royal couple. They have been active in supporting various charities and causes, especially those working to help children and young people. The Crown Princess has also been involved in the work to promote women’s rights and equality.

The couple believes in the importance of using their position and influence to help make the world a better place.
