Malanka 2018

It’s time for the Old New Year and your chance to say good-bye to 2017 again! And — UCAO is celebrating its 35th anniversary in 2018! What an opportunity to reconnect with old friends and make some new ones at this festive gathering. In the lovely ballroom of the Clintonville Women’s Club you can enjoy dinner with complimentary wine and an assortment of fabulous Ukrainian tortes for dessert (new this year). For fun, we’ll have a silent auction and raffle to benefit the Ukrainian Relief Initiative. And we’ll give you a peek into UCAO’s accomplishments over the last 35 years.

Dinner options are Black Angus braised beef, chicken piccata, or poached salmon. Don’t delay. Sign up below, marking your dinner choice. Children up to the age of 15 can get an adult meal for half price. Deadline for payments is 6 pm, Sunday, January 21, 2018. You’ll find all the details when you click below.
