Celebrating the New Year & Supporting Ukrainian Refugees

Napa Valley, CA - December 2023 - Napa Valley to Ukraine (http://www.napaukraine.org/), in collaboration with Ukrainian American House (https://www.uahouse.org/) and the Town of Yountville, is proud to announce its Second Annual Fundraiser, Napa Valley Stands with Ukraine.

Tickets are on sale now for this Saturday, January 13, 2024, 1:00 -4:00 pm event at Yountville Community Hall. Proceeds will support Ukrainian refugees in our communities.

This Ukrainian New Year's celebration will provide an immersive cultural experience with live Ukrainian music, holiday traditions, and a showcase of Ukrainian vendors. Guests will have the opportunity to enjoy an afternoon of Napa Valley's finest wines paired with Ukrainian and local cuisine and hear firsthand from Ukrainian leaders and Napa Valley’s refugees helping to organize this event. A live auction will feature one-of-kind items from Ukraine.

“Ukrainian people have suffered tremendously within the last two years, Millions have lost their homes, thousands have lost their lives. There is not a single Ukrainian family that I know that has not been impacted by the Russian aggression against Ukraine. I am forever grateful to American citizens supporting Ukraine and who have welcomed Ukrainian refugees to their homes and communities,” said Roman Shermata, Chairman of Ukrainian American House.

“Funds raised on January 13 will support our monthly community dinners in 2024 organized by and for Ukrainian refugees in Napa County. Funds will also support microloans to help these families to afford cars and housing of their own,” states Debbie Alter-Starr LCSW, Co-Founder of Napa Valley to Ukraine. “Ukrainian American House has meanwhile become an essential partner in helping our refugees, many of whom arrive speaking little to no English. We are also raising funds to continue and expand their peer support and mental health programs which serve our refugees in their native languages, in person, over the phone and online.”

Kate T. a refugee whose family fled Mariupol, Ukraine and now lives in Napa explains, “Americans are kind and helpful but they don’t know specific aspects of our culture, how we talk to each other and what makes us feel comfortable. It’s important for Ukainians to meet and gather. Our community is over 40 people and is growing. As people who went through trauma, being far from home we need to feel secure and also to be independent.”

“The 2nd annual Napa Valley Stands with Ukraine event is an excellent opportunity to deepen your understanding and appreciation of the Ukrainian people and their traditions” according to Margie Mohler, Mayor of the Town of Yountville. “ We look forward to seeing you again this year at our community center to celebrate the New Year and support our refugees.”

Advance tickets are $30 per person on www.eventbrite.com (http://www.eventbrite.com/) or $40 at the door and include a glass of wine, champagne toast, and appetizers.
