“We’re making an attempt to get as quite a few persons there as we can,” he claimed. “We will have speakers that have been in Ukraine during the war and managed to evacuate and there will be a silent auction. For the little ones there will functions and bounce homes, and heaps of excellent food and information for the older people.
“The key position is that this is not large business, it is people from Evansville doing work with nearby church buildings in Ukraine, so any income donated will all go instantly to help with food items, medication or evacuation.”
Ukrainian meals specialties will involve Plov, a rice pilaf dish with beef and carrots, and Chebureki, a crisp deep-fried turnover filled with beef or chicken and spices.
Also on the menu are pork or hen skewers with grilled vegetables and a large wide range of desserts from conventional cake slices to crepes with strawberries or Nutella.
