The Vancouver Club, Maple Hope Foundation and volunteer battalion in Vancouver cordially invite you to NOT JUST A DINNER but a black tie fundraising reception with an entertaining program.

Join us in one of the most elite local venues, The Vancouver Club, for a classy evening dedicated to raising funds for Ukraine.

What to expect:

  • Three-course menu (description below) catered by The Vancouver Club included in the ticket
  • A drink of choice included in the ticket
  • A special a la Ukrainian style dessert included in the ticket
  • Cash bar available for beverages
  • A special Ukrainian shot available for purchase with a full profit amount to benefit Ukraine
  • Live music to accompany the reception
  • Performances featuring Ukrainian artists, art and culture
  • Exhibition and sale of art, crafts, jewelry, souvenirs, paintings etc
  • Auction with valuable lots from local businesses
  • A beautiful heritage venue in the heart of Vancouver’s downtown offering elegant ambiance and serviced by an expert catering team

Doors open at 5:30 pm with a welcome drink hour; dinner with a program begins at 6:30 pm.

The live program includes performances of well established local artists as well as those who had recently moved to Canada as Ukrainians seeking refuge.

The program is built as a well thought through flow of curated, carefully picked songs, intentionally produced dance pieces, charming Ukrainian designer collection show, exciting offers of the live auction and speeches from the community leaders.

Among the songs the show will feature covers on such all time favorites like Hold My Hand by Lady Gaga and Stand by Me by Ben E. King. It will also introduce you to some culturally crucial Ukrainian songs and those which became iconic since Ukraine’s fight for freedom (covers on Okean Elzy, Jamala, Kazka, etc).

Especially produced dance pieces will not only mesmerize you by the talent and skill of recently arrived Ukrainians but will also touch your soul showcasing a couple which carries their love through a war torn country.

You will also hear a couple of words from some of the local community leaders like the General Manager of The Vancouver Club, the leader of the Ukrainian Canadian Congress, the co-founder and CEO of Maple Hope Foundation and other special guests.

The three-course menu offers a selection of:

APPETIZER:

  • Simple Greens: crudités, citrus vinaigrette, soft herbs (vg/gf/df)
