United for Ukraine

Join us on Sunday, July 31st, 11am - 8:30pm for United for Ukraine - a fundraiser with live music and a marketplace at St. John's and films by Ukrainian filmmakers about Ukraine at the Cinema Arts Centre in Huntington.

St. John's will host a marketplace with a silent auction as well as "buy it now" sales of art, jewelry, crafts, goods & services; food and drinks will also be for sale. A concert featuring St. John's Artist-in-Residence, Alex Pryrodny, and other artists from Ukraine and Long Island favorites will occur all afternoon in the church's sanctuary. The film, "Olga" about a Ukrainian gymnast in exile by Ukrainian filmmaker, Elie Grappa, will be screened at the Cinema Arts Centre at 12pm & 7pm.

All proceeds from the event will be split between World Central Kitchen, who sets up food distribution and cooks meals for refugees in the border nations as well as in Ukraine; and to Direct Relief which gives medical supplies, equipment and funds to refugees as well as those still in Ukraine. Charity Navigator rates both charities 4 of 4 stars, the highest rating, with 100% going to aid the refugees.
