French-Bulgarian chamber of commerce raises 15 000 leva for charity

The French-Bulgarian chamber of commerce (CCFB) said that it raised 15 000 leva at its annual charity dinner and auction on December 10.

The proceeds of this year’s event will go to Our Premature Children foundation, which will use the funds to buy equipment for neonatal wards at Bulgarian hospitals, specifically equipment for prematurely born infants.

The event at the Hilton Sofia hotel was attended by more than 100 guests, including French ambassador in Sofia Xavier Lapeyre de Cabanes and CCFB president Stéphane Delahaye.
