On Wednesday, December 22, 1999 a celebration was held at Galapagos (70N6, Williamsburg, Brooklyn, NY 11211) to benefit children with Down's Syndrome in Croatia. Festive holiday program included: band performance, DJ, opera singer, dance music, silent auction, sumptuous Croatian specialties and complimentary bar service. Suggested contribution was $30. $1305 was raised for The Croatian Down's Syndrome Association. CDSA was founded in Zagreb in May 1999 for the purpose of providing much needed services for those very special people.

Bok is the informal greeting indigenous to Zagreb.
