Stand With Ukraine Benefit Day

Written by UCC Regina

The prairies are home to many of the 1.4 million Canadians with Ukrainian ancestry – the largest community outside of Russia and Ukraine itself. Saskatchewan has felt the impacts of the recent attacks on Ukraine and stands with those affected.

The ongoing conflict has widespread and devastating humanitarian impacts. In addition to international support for Ukraine, local support is needed as we welcome Ukrainians into our communities as they flee war and conflict. Stand with Ukraine Benefit Day is an opportunity to stand in solidarity and in peace with the people of Ukraine and support by hosting this benefit to raise much-needed funds which will stay local for those people of Ukraine coming to our province who will need support in the months to come.

The Ukrainian, Polish and Hungarian communities are joining together to host a “mini-mosaic” in which artisans, dance, music, and speakers will be highlighted, and food will be available. There will be opportunities for donations at the door instead of a ticket fee, raffle prizes, and 50/50 to help contribute to the overall donation made to the Ukrainian Canadian Congress – Saskatchewan in support of their efforts to respond to this situation. If anyone is interested in sponsoring, donating, or contributing to the raffle, please let us know.

June 12, 2022, 11 AM – 7 PM Regina Performing Arts Centre (1077 Angus St), Regina
