“Since the invasion of Ukraine, the whole world has witnessed the brutality of this war, the bombings of hospitals and schools, civilian deaths, and the displacement of nearly 8 million people. We envisioned this event as an opportunity to maintain awareness about the war, raise funds for urgent medical and humanitarian needs, and demonstrate the beauty and power of Ukraine and its people. With this event, we are asking supporters in the United States to help Sunflower of Peace provide as much relief as possible to those suffering in Ukraine,”

“At a time when our hearts are breaking for what is happening in Ukraine, we choose strength and action to do what we can to bring hope and help to this war’s darkest places. Beauty, power, creativity, and innovation – that’s the Ukrainian spirit we want all our guests to witness and share.
