I would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to our sponsors, volunteers, attendees and our friends for making the Tribute Gala honouring Roman Waschuk and his wife Oksana Smerechuk possible! Your sponsorship commitment, participation and enthusiasm ensured the success of the event!
With your help, we were able not only to honour Roman and Oksana for their contributions to Canada and dedication to public service but also raise money for the UCC Parliamentary Internship program and UCC Community Development Fund.
Thank you for investing in our youth and giving them an incredible start in their professional life and thank you for making sure that our Ukrainian Canadian community is strong, united and influential!
Щира Вам подяка за вашу інвестицію у нашу молодь та нашу громаду!
