In total, during the charity evening, more than 1.7 million hryvnias were collected.
Organisators of the evening Sargis Sargsyan and Elvira Gavrilova shared that they had a lot of difficulties while organising the event but God sent them people who helped them.
Sargis Sargsyan and Elvira Gavrilova said: “We would like to express our gratitude to the public organization “Ukrainians in Greece”, the representative of the “Battalion Volunteer” foundation Oleksandr Prykhodchenko, the dentist Khrystyna Medynska, the director of the company “VASH CENTER” Anatoly Kuchirko, the girls from Candy Cat, the deputy head of the United Ukrainian diaspora in Greece Oksana Koziy.”
