1st Raptors Croatian Heritage Night – Thank you!

A great evening with family, friends and members of our Croatian community in Canada as the Chamber hosted, along with MLSE and the Toronto Raptors, the inaugural Croatian Heritage Night at Scotiabank Arena, featuring special guest and NBA-star Dario Šarić of the Phoenix Suns.

Following the victory by the Raptors, Šarić was welcomed by 500 or so Croatian-Canadians for a post-game gathering. He walked into fans chanting “Dario Šarić!” and joined them in an impromptu performance of “Lijepa li si”. It was great to see the display of Croatian colours and pride as well as the smiles on the faces of, in particular, our younger members as they were photographed with our basketball star.

Special thanks to MLSE, the Toronto Raptors, the Phoenix Suns, and in particular Thiago Freire (MLSE) for the opportunity.

Thank you to all those who attended and contributed, in particular Walter Sudetic and Stan Bioksic for the photos and video!

We look forward to making this event even bigger in the future!
