On April 27, 2019, IMBiH Ambassador Faruk Bilalagic attended the 2nd annual “Blue Night” in Toronto, Canada. The event was organized by Manijaci USA/CAN, a newly conceived non-profit organization dedicated to promote, cultivate, and educate the fans and supporters of F.K. Zeljeznicar, a professional soccer club based in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina. During the event, attendees were entertained by the newly formed Toronto band, “Blue Union,” which played old Ex-Yugo songs along with FK Zeljeznicar songs by famous artists such as Zabranjeno Pusenje, Mladen Vojicic TIFA, and SFOR. The organization collected funds for new year’s gift packages for orphanages and groups homes in Sarajevo. These included Orphanage Bjelave (Roditeljska Kuca) and the organization “Ruka na Srce.”
Members of Manijaci USA/CAN drove and flew in from all over the US and Canada, including places as far away as Houston, St. Louis, Chicago, Detroit, Grand Rapids, Utica, and Richmond.
