United for Ukraine Fundraiser
July 31 @ 11:00 am - 6:00 pm$30
St John’s Episcopal Church and The Cinema Arts Centre in Huntington are collaborating with national award-winning singer-songwriter Patricia Shih to produce a fundraiser for Ukraine. Our aim is to help some of the millions of war refugees who have fled their country by relieving their suffering through food and medical help.
The fundraiser will feature a marketplace, live concert (3 of the 7 performers are Ukrainians), and a film screening (at the Cinema Arts Centre). The suggested donation to enter is $30; more if possible, less if necessary. Tickets for the film screenings (@12PM and @7PM) will be sold and managed separately by the CAC box office.
We turn to you for a donation of goods, services or funds for our United for Ukraine fundraiser on Sunday, July 31. The recipients of all funds raised with be split between World Central Kitchen and Direct Relief. WCK brings food and also sets up kitchens in war-torn areas and refugee camps around the world to cook and serve hot meals to those in need. Direct Relief distributes medical supplies, equipment and aid. Both charities have the highest ratings (4 out of 4 stars) in Charity Navigator so you know your donation will do the most good for the most people. 100% of the proceeds from the church events will go directly to them.
Your item/service will be part of The Marketplace at St John’s Church in a silent auction or a “buy it now” feature. Also at the church will be concerts by Ukrainian artists and Long Island acts. Tickets to the Marketplace and concert will be sold at the door of the church and 100% will go to the 2 charities.
Your donation will help those in desperate need, both in Ukraine and in border countries where millions of refugees have fled. Your name will be acknowledged on the bid sheet. Thank you for your kind generosity.
Organizers are accepting donations of Ukrainian food, clothing, accessories, etc., which would have to be brought to the church on Saturday, July 30 between 12:30 PM and 5:00 PM.
