As the Russian invasion of Ukraine continues, Oakville Festivals of Film and Art, the Ukrainian World Foundation, Zirkova Vodka, and Chantal Kreviazuk, are doing their part to support relief efforts for our friends in Ukraine.
As part of the 9th Annual Oakville Film Festival, this Ukrainian Arts Festival Gala Fundraiser will occur on Saturday, 25th June at 7 pm ET, at the Oakville Centre for the Performing Arts.
This festival features authentic Ukrainian film, performance, dance, and art, and funds raised will go towards emergency medical and humanitarian support, to help the brave civilian volunteers in Ukraine as they fight for freedom. A live auction, and an auction of local Ukrainian art, will raise further funds to support the cause. The Sponsor is Capstick McCollum and Associates.
