Local musicians and Penticton United Church are coming together to put on a benefit concert to raise funds for Ukraine on Sunday, April 24.
The day will begin with an outdoor reception and refreshments at 3:30 p.m. The concert will begin at 4 p.m. with performers Yanti with Allan Crossley, Justin Glibbery, Packing House Social Club, Linnea Good and youth violinists.
There will also be Ukrainian food, paintings, ribbons and plaques. Admission is by donation with all funds going to the Ukrainian Canadian Volunteer Association.
Ukrainians are relocating to countries and communities throughout the world.
Some are evacuating to safer areas within Ukraine to escape the Russian aggression. Schools, halls, community centres and gyms are being used for shelter. Funding from the benefit concert will be used to provide basic essentials for these families including food, medical supplies, diapers, clothing, sanitary items, etc.
