As president and CEO of the Kostopulos Dream Foundation, which operates Camp Kostopulos, Mircea Divricean has had impact. His influence increased even more when he was appointed Honorary Consul of Romania to the United States two years ago, and he’s been motivated to find ways of strengthening relationships between the two countries ever since. Now he’s found one way to do it, with his inaugural Romanian Festival.

Romania’s Great Union Centennial Festival will be held this Saturday, July 7, beginning at 5:30 p.m. at Camp K, located in Emigration Canyon. An authentic Romanian dinner and social hour runs until 6:30 p.m., followed by a concert given by Alexandru Pugna, the State Secretary for the Ministry of Culture and National Identity of Romania, who is a beloved musician. He will perform traditional songs reflecting Romanian culture.

Mircea says the Great Union Centennial Festival is celebrating the 100th anniversary of Romania’s unification as a country, after it was divided for hundreds of years. In 1918, Romanians living across three historic Principalities made a bold call for unity and proclaimed Romania a modern, democratic and sovereign nation, with support from Woodrow Wilson, the U.S. president at the time.

Admission to Romania’s Great Union Centennial Festival is free but tickets are required and are limited. Visit www.campk.org/Romania to get yours!

For Zions Bank, I’m Chris Redgrave, speaking on business.

Date: July 7, 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
