Dinner Raises Money for Victims of Bosnia Flooding

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) -- A group of Bosnian-Americans organized a dinner to raise money for Bosnia flood relief.

Two hundred seats were available at La Gala this evening for that dinner provided by several area restaurants.

Tickets were 35 dollars and there was also a silent auction to raise funds.

"First, it's going to go toward shipping the medical supplies to Bosnia. Everything else will be donated to a different organization that's going to individually give money to people who are in need and whose homes have been damaged," said Dijana Muminovic, the event organizer.

She says she's grateful for how the community is supporting her goal of helping her home country through the disaster, and she already has more fundraising events in mind.
