BENEFITING: Ukrainian Home Of Rochester Inc
As you may know, because of the ongoing war in Ukraine, there is a very pressing need for medical supplies and humanitarian aid. Ukrainians are bravely fighting for their freedom from Russian aggression. Wounded young men returning from the front lines can no longer function as you and I normally would. Some require intensive medical procedures and months of rehabilitation. And worse yet, many families have lost everything, have been separated and many children have been orphaned. Ukraine is economically deficient and the war is further draining its dwindling resources. Despite aid coming from friends from all over the globe, the need is dire and growing every day. Americans have always supported other nations in their fight from tyranny and for independence. Ukrainian Kozaks (meaning free men) have done so for centuries and are again faced with a battle for freedom. While they are fighting this war, the Ukrainian Cultural Center & ROC Maidan have sent many supplies, however, they need more....they need your support. The Ukrainian Cultural Center (UCC), a registered not for profit organization and its affiliate organization ROC MAIDAN, would like you to be one of the sponsors of this year's fund raising “Beer and Wine Tasting with Food Pairing Event”. This fund-raiser will include the voluntary participation of local restaurants, plus InterVol has kindly donated all the beer and wine for the event. The objective is to raise at least $5,000 to $10,000 from sponsor donations and ticket sales. More importantly, InterVol is working with an anonymous donor that will match the amount raised during this event. So the more we raise, the more this anonymous donor will provide and the more aid we can send to the victims of the war in Ukraine. We would be very appreciative of your support of this event that will bring much needed humanitarian aid and medical supplies to those impacted by Russian aggression against the freedom loving people of Ukraine. Your donation will be posted at this event, unless you choose to remain anonymous. Please do consider your participation as a sponsor of this important and worthwhile humanitarian cause. Details of the event are as follows: Date: October 14, 2017 Time: 6:30 – 9:00PM Venue: Ukrainian Cultural Center of Rochester 1040 Jackson Road Webster, NY 14580 Make your tax deductible donation on-line through this fundraising page or make your checks payable to "ROC Maidan" and mail to the Ukrainian Cultural Center of Rochester, 1040 Jackson Road, Webster, NY 14580 with a memo "Ukraine in Need." We will provide a receipt for tax purposes upon receipt of your donation. Thank you in advance for your consideration and your kind donation.
