Benefit concert to raise funds for Ukraine

More than 10.5 million people have been displaced either within Ukraine or abroad, whilst many have stayed and live in nonstop horror. There is a lack of food, medications, and many vital supplies. Ukrainian people are in urgent need of humanitarian and relocation assistance.

Maple Hope Foundation and the volunteer battalion in Vancouver bring together local and internationally acclaimed artists in a soulful evening of solidarity.

Support Ukraine by joining us for a night of an excellent selection of music from classical composers like Chopin and Beethoven to popular Ukrainian songs that connect to our hearts and souls.

Doors open at 6 pm for the reception with food, beverages, silent auction, art exhibition, souvenirs sales, etc.

The concert starts at 7 pm.
