Anita, originally from Slovenia finds herself in her dedication in community involvement no matter if living in Slovenia, Monte Carlo or Naples.  This is her third year of involvement in The Bucket list bash. She is also proud mom of two kids – Thomas and Valentina.


It is my honor and blessing to chair the 10th Bucket List Bash gala. Our team is working tirelessly to make this event the most successful and memorable. It is so important that we step together to fight against cancer. We can do so much do together.


I am personally driven since I know too many people who have lost their lives to cancer, starting with my own family and dear friends. The pain of the loss of life to cancer is something that drives me to help achieve ACS mission – life without cancer!
