The New and Improved Dining Room

March 24, 2021

Thanks to the success of our Virtual Winter Gala, we were able to renovate one of the most commonly used spaces here at Soyuzivka. The funds raised through donations from Soyuzivka supporters allowed us to repair issues behind the scenes (or walls) as well as install an entirely new, dance ready floor. Brand new ceiling lights along with a few coats of fresh paint brighten up the entire place, while the color changing LED light strips around the perimeter add a colorful flair for any event.

Thanks to all of your support, a project we have discussed for years has finally come to fruition!

Here are some step by step pictures of the renovation project

First we had to find and repair the leaks

Repairs were made wherever they were needed

As we painted, the carpet was slowly taken up and the subfloor repaired

The arduous task of laying down the new floor took days to complete

With open arms, we welcome everyone to come and enjoy the brand new dining room with your family and friends!

2021 Fundraising

We hope that you and your loved ones are keeping safe and healthy. The pandemic has impacted all of our lives in meaningful ways, and we wanted you to know that it has also affected Soyuzivka.

Soyuzivka is an iconic location that has, for generations, allowed Ukrainians everywhere to come together and celebrate Ukrainian history and culture. Since March 2020, however, Soyuzivka has been left without its usual sources of income from its camps, festivals and other in-person events. At the same time, the expense of running Soyuzivka has continued. The financial impact of the pandemic has been considerable.

In order to raise funds for the continued operation of Soyuzivka, we are kicking off our most ambitious fundraising plan yet, and we need your support! We invite you to participate in our fundraiser to “Rekindle the Magic of Soyuzivka.” Please join us with a financial contribution to ensure Soyuzivka is able to provide the same Ukrainian cultural events and community for generations to come. Any donation is tax-deductible and will help make a substantial impact.

Thank you in advance for your continued support of and contribution to our beloved Soyuzivka, which means so much to us.
