Fundraiser Planned to Aid People of Ukraine

Quincy, MA – On Aug. 11, Sunflower of Peace will host Beauty From Ashes, a fashion gala and fundraiser to benefit the people of Ukraine.

Ukrainian designers and nearly 300 guests will attend the event, which will be held at the Granite Links Golf Club in Quincy from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. Ukrainian musician Angelina Statieva is set to perform.

The evening has been planned to be a tribute to and celebration of the resilience, beauty, and boundless strength of the Ukrainian people. It will include a multimedia fashion performance and silent and live auctions. It is also an opportunity for philanthropists and business leaders to offer event sponsorships in support of the people of Ukraine.

“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,” said Katya Malakhova, founder of Sunflower of Peace.

The proceeds from the fundraiser will provide urgent medical and humanitarian aid to paramedics and doctors in the areas devastated by the Russian invasion; portable electric generators; and urgent support to organizations in Ukraine serving women, children, orphans and adults with disabilities.
