If the event is sold out, you are still able to help the Ukrainian people by donating to the following organizations:
International Rescue Committee: Over 3.5 million refugees have been forced to flee Ukraine. The IRC is on the ground in Poland supporting displaced children and families with vital supplies.
Global Giving’s Ukraine Crisis Relief Fund is funding over 20 relief organizations, all with projects currently active in Ukraine, providing blankets, food, medical supplies and emergency shelters.
World Central Kitchen’s world-class chefs are providing hot cooked meals on the ground to refugees as they flee from Ukraine and after they have arrived in places of refuge, such as Poland, Romania and Moldova.
At the event you will be able to acquire beautiful garments and wares from Ukraine, and photos and paintings by some amazing local artists by donation. All proceeds will go to benefit Ukraine.
Attendees must be fully vaccinated (that means 3 shots). Please bring a picture ID and proof of full vaccination. A face covering is required for entry and must be worn during the concert. We ask that you wear an N95 or KN95 mask, or a surgical mask which covers nose and mouth, and socially distance to the extent possible. Gaiters and bandanas are not acceptable.
