Six units of the Center Snail (social welfare institution for people with special needs), joined forces and in yearly event Come for a coffee, introduced American coffee and American culture. Reach program was prepared and introduced through play. There was also a guest who introduced America through the eyes of Americans living in Slovenia. One of them was Ron Mezt, who moved from the desert Nevada into green Slovenia and is now working in organic farming; and, Amy Bordon shared her story how life led her from California and found love in Slovenia and is now a mother of five daughters. The special achievement was brought to light by Jure Korber and his outstanding experience in the Special Olympics. Among many performers who helped with this event was also an amazing voice from a blind singer, Aleš Hadalin.

Šest enot varstveno-delovnega centra Polž je združilo moči in na letni prireditvi Prideš na kavo, predstavilo Ameriko. Predstavili so avtohtone prebivalce Amerike, pa obred s pipo miru, nadaljevali s prihodom Kolumba ter predstavili petje in ples, manjkal pa ni niti ameriški nogomet. Ameriko smo spoznavali tudi skozi oči Američanov, ki živijo v Sloveniji ter prisluhnili zgodbama Rona Mezta, ki se je iz puščavske Nevade preselil v zeleno Slovenijo, kjer se danes ukvarja z biološkim kmetijstvom ter se nasmehnili simpatični Amy Bordon in njeni zgodbi, kako jo je pot pripeljala v Evropo, ljubezen pa v Slovenijo in je danes mamica petih hčera. Svojo izkušnjo na specialni olimpijadi in seveda medalje je predstavil Jure Korber ter opisal njegovo izjemno izkušnjo. Med številnimi nastopajočimi, ki so soustvarjali pri tem dogodku, je tudi glas izjemnega Aleš Hadalina, ki nas je odpeljal v čudovit svet. In v čudovit svet Amerike so nas odpeljale kulinarične dobrote, ki so jih pripravili varovanci v sodelovanju z gostinsko in turistično šolo.
