In light of recent events, Elyse Harney Real Estate is helping get the word out about a fundraiser to support Ukrainians who have been impacted by the Russian military invasion. The organizers are partnering with the Sunflower for Peace Foundation to provide much-needed aid and compassion to the families and communities struggling during this time.
This fundraiser will be taking place this Saturday, March 12th, at the RE Institute in Millerton, NY. While this may appear very last minute, this reflects the urgency of need. This event will support the Sunflower of Peace Foundation, the World Central Kitchen, Razom, and other organizations directly helping orphans evacuated from Kyvis and other Ukrainian cities to Poland.
During this event, we will be coming together to celebrate Ukrainian culture and take comfort in the compassion of our community. Please see below for a list of events, ticket prices, and RSVP.
Our community centers upon empathy and charity, and we know that many have already contributed to this cause. However, each day this conflict continues, the need for support grows. Please join us as we contribute what little we can to ease the suffering of those in dire need.
