“I am grateful to all the members of the American Delegation of Savoy Orders and their guests this evening, for your effort in supporting the charitable causes of the Orders that will benefit from the funds raised tonight for the needs of Veterans who have served so well. The fact that you are by your generosity so effectively supporting charitable works in your community and throughout the world, gives me great happiness, since these excellent endeavors are being carried out in the name and traditions of the Royal House of Savoy.”
