Lifeline Humanitarian (Pittsburgh Tri-State Committee) is pleased to announce that nominations are now open for the Tesla Visionaries Society.  Tesla Visionaries are “humanitarian superstars” who will be challenged to individually raise a minimum of $1,000 toward Lifeline in collaboration with their friends, family and local community.
Tesla Visionary nominees raise funds through traditional fundraising ideas like spaghetti dinners, raffles, donations and sponsorships or through new and innovative events such as painting parties, wine or slivo tasting events, or even an “Opanke 5k.” We are looking for your help to identify qualified nominees. The society is open to anyone or any group (kolo, tambura, choir, friends), from any city in the United States, who wishes to be recognized for their humanitarian and charitable efforts and to raise funds for Lifeline.  For more information, please email either Lisa Tomasovich ( or Lifeline (
Our next mission trip to Serbia is scheduled for June 22-26, 2017.  If you are interested in seeing the real impact of your donations and learning more about opportunities to help, please consider joining us on this fast-paced excursion.  We will be based in the center of Belgrade for the 5-day trip, traveling to orphanages, shelters, and hospitals from our base in the city.  We will also visit The White Palace for a reception hosted by our patron Her Royal Highness Crown Princess Katherine.  Space is limited in order to accommodate everyone in the group.  To learn more, contact our office by email or phone.
