2019 Fulbright Austria SummerFest

The second annual Fulbright Austria SummerFest was a big success, with more than 130 guests in attendance. It was a fantastic opportunity to celebrate our fundraising efforts, rekindle connections, and mingle with the Fulbright Austria community. More than 30 lottery items were raffled off, and visitors were also able to enjoy a screening of our interviews with the Audiovisuelles Archiv, which highlight the stories of our alumni from 1951–52 to 1961–62, and a special private concert by US Fulbright student and soprano Theodora Nestorova. Great catering accompanied an evening spent amongst friends and supporters of Fulbright Austria from near and far, and together we were able to raise more than €8,300 for Fulbright Austria programs—including the donations made to our Annual Alumni Fund. We would like to thank everyone for their incredible support and for advocating on behalf of Fulbright Austria. Special thanks go out to our lottery donors for the gifts and vouchers they provided:
