Thank you for your contributions and making our events a reality!
On Sunday, August 14th, 2016, a XXI Family Picnic of Polish American Medical Society took place at Jack & Lidia’s Resort in Villa Park, IL. The event was organized by the members of the Society, and attended by more than 60 participants, including PAMA members and their families. The weather was perfect, and the music background was provided by Dr. Tucci and Dr. Niekrasz.
The picnic has traditionally been a very informal event. After initial round of appetizers, a delicious roasted pig and grilled chicken were served. Everybody have had a lot of fun and time to refresh new and old friendships, meet other doctors and families as well as current medical students.
Dr. Kornelia Krol congratulated Dr. Marek Niekrasz on becoming a full professor at the University of Chicago Veterinary School. Bravo and congratulations to Dr. Niekrasz again.
After dinner, everybody engaged in small group discussions, sports, singing and dancing.
Thank you very much to all participants, and see you next year.
Kamila Dworski of Polvision and Radio 1030 AM, the fashion show’s media sponsor, hosted a Red Carpet on which she interviewed the event’s generous sponsors and fashion designers. Janusz Piłka, Krzystof Babiracki, and Wojtek Lysinski photographed the beautiful models – photos available below.
Afterwards, there was dancing, refreshments, a raffle, and a lot of fun. All those in attendance were happy to get together for such an exciting event while showing those in crisis that the community cares. PAMS looks forward to hosting the Third Annual Charity Fashion show next year.
