On April 30, 2022, at 5 pm, the Association of United Ukrainian Canadians Winnipeg, is hosting a perogy dinner & puzzle race to raise funds for Doctors Without Borders, in Lviv, Ukraine. 100% of funds raised will be used to provide critical medical supplies to war-torn areas of Ukraine.

“We want to thank some of our younger AUUC members for standing up for peace in Ukraine, and for organizing this fun way for families and friends to support the important medical relief work of Doctors without Borders,” says AUUC Winnipeg Vice President Emily Halldorson.

Teams of 3-4 will race against each other to complete a 500 piece puzzle, donated by Ravensburger Puzzles Canada through Across the Board game cafe. Local North End businesses have supported the event by donating prizes for the silent auction. Other event sponsors include Ira’s Deli and Glen Eden Funeral Home & Cemetery.

Robyn Smith, event organizer explains, “This is a true locally supported and run event, representing our communities deep ties with Ukraine and our desire to help in anyway possible.”

In addition to event tickets ($30 for adults, $20 for 12 and under, 5 and under free), the organizers are also selling support tickets for $10 for those who cannot attend but may wish to support the cause. Tickets are available on Eventbrite.

The event is being held at the newly renovated national historic site: Ukrainian Labour Temple at 591 Pritchard Avenue.
