Charitable mission of Viennese Ball in Pereiaslav-Khmelnytskyi owing to sponsors, donors and Green Cross Ukraine, charitable organisation

The first Viennese Ball, very interesting and picturesque event took place in Pereiaslav-Khmelnytskyi on March 8, 2010. Organizers of the event were the New Wave, youth organization and the regional center of social services for families, children and youth. This event resulted in charity fundraising to support creative disabled youth.

Natalia Onoprienko, chairman of the New Wave, youth organization informed that they managed to raise money of over seven thousand UAH that evening. More than UAH 3000 were contributed at first hand; the rest of money was proceeds from sold lots of the auction and social lottery. In addition, some deputies of local authorities promised to allocate certain amount of money as a financial support for talented young people. They expressed certain proposals of donors, who took part in life and work of heroes of the event.

The New wave, youth organization will make use of collected money and buy the following materials for disabled youth: paint, beads, thread, fabric, frames, paper, etc., which is necessary for them at master classes. The main task of this organization is enabling these talented children, young people to improve and develop their skills in future. We hope that it allows them to turn their hobbies into crafts and they will be able to earn money.

120 representatives of business and government were invited to the Viennese Ball. About 80 people were present in the Druzhba, restaurant that evening on March, 8. They undertook their separate noble participation in supporting creative young people. Victor Sheremet, chairman of the local council and his wife Kateryna were among the local VIP-persons, who accepted the invitation. Also there were people from the sphere of culture, representatives of governmental organizations, businesses and several deputies of the local council with their companions, representatives of NGOs and charities, including international charitable organizations.

Yuriy Sapiga, chairman of the Green Cross Ukraine (International Foundation of Mikhail Gorbachev) made the first donation (UAH 200) to the so called generosity bowl. He arrived to the meeting with his wife Oksana exactly at 19:00. Green Cross Ukraine, charitable organization has financed and helped with preparations for the Viennese Ball; it was approximately 30% of the total budget. In the near future the chairman of the organization is going to open separate representative office of his foundation in Pereyaslav-Khmelnytskyi in order to collaborate more effectively. By the way, Yuriy Sapiga was first, who started bidding at the auction of works of art. He bought the first lot – a painting on canvas, made by Lesia Rybak, young artist from Polih-Yanenki. He invited the girl to the Carpathians to rest and improve her health when it would be appropriate for her. Green Cross Ukraine defrayed all costs.

And now we will tell about artistic works of ten young artists with disabilities, the main personalities of the evening.

Guests had excellent opportunity to appreciate their creative potential, observing special exhibition of paintings, pictures made of threads and embroidered with beads, beaded bouquets, original decor and other practical things, such as women's jewelry, handbags, cases for carrying mobile phones etc…

Starting price of works varied from UAH 50 to 180. This price depended on the costs spent on materials.

Works of children are very valuable, even because they are made with great love and positive energy.

Organizers of the event did a lot. We deeply appreciated Expression trio, teachers of music school for live music, the participants and the leader of Kapriz, choreographic team. Oksana Smirnova and her students from pedagogical faculty decorated exhibition hall. All youth organizations in the region contributed to the work of the participants of the project.

So, the charity became the main feature of Viennese Ball in Pereyaslav, though actively supported by the visitors. However, we expect that this is only the beginning. Thus, guests are happy about this idea.
