Donor Spotlight
This chocolate model of the Roman Theatre in Plovdiv was created as part of an event initiated by Ms. Desislava Slavcheva and hosted by Atos Bulgaria to raise funds to support the conservation of 50 archaeological finds from the 2017 season.  Following the dismantling and consumptionof the chocolate theatre, the event raised over 2600 BGN!  With all the funding now in place, the conservation work got underway this month. Thank you Atos, Desislava Slavcheva, Diana Yaneva, Yuri Baltiiski and Veselin Doykov!
We would also like to thank Ivaylo Kyuchukov, Zachary Boettcher and Kristy-Lee Seaton for contributing to this campaign.
