Note from the Producer
I have created this special event for the people and the country where I was born and grew up, in order to honor the memory of our ancestors and my beloved Romania.
This occasion is not just about this year's celebration, but about the past and future of our community in America.
Our goal is to strengthen the bond between two nations, inspire and motivate, in a day celebrating the cherished values and unique traditions that my native country has to offer.
