Aug 28: Make Varenyky, Not War!

August 28, 2015 @ 7:00 pm

Over 100 people registered so far. You must register at http://bit.ly/Varenyky to attend, as the space is limited.
Come join us in Mountain View for the tastiest party of the summer. We’ll be making varenyky, music and new friends. Bring your own musical instruments and let’s jam together for the good cause 🙂
The party is organized by Nova Ukraine to benefit its psychological trauma fund with the goal of funding a grant to Wounded Warrior Ukraine (WWU), a project of Healing War Scars, Inc., a Boston-based NGO, founded by Roman Torgovitsky and dedicated to the recovery effort in Ukraine. WWU is empowering returning veterans and civilians alike to overcome the trauma of war, once again becoming productive members of society, and to help their peers do the same.

Please join us for a relaxed evening of food, fun, and conversation. Bring your appetite and your checkbooks, a member of Wounded Warrior Ukraine team, Nadia Shifrin will be there to answer your questions.
We can’t wait to meet you!
