Each year, Ukrainian Catholic Women’s League of Canada (St. Demetrius Branch) hosts a “Flowers of Spring Tea” to fund-raise for selected community projects and charities. This year, the event was held on April 2nd at St. Demetrius Parish Hall in Etobicoke. The event attracted over 350 guests, both young and old – fitting for the theme of this year’s event: “Let’s carry on the tradition”.
Dr. John generously supported this event by providing two Electronic Toothbrushes as prizes for the raffle draw. This raffle is a main attraction for many of the guests who attend this event, and a key fundraising activity for the Women’s League. The two different toothbrushes sparked a healthy debate between guests – “Which of the two toothbrushes should we pick?” The very happy winners of the toothbrushes were John Kuzyk and Oksana Iwanusiw.
Each year, the planning committee of this event selects a new community project to support. Proceeds from this year’s Tea will go towards the Library Renewal Project for St. Demetrius Catholic School and to support Ukrainian Wounded Warriors who will be participating in the Invictus Games happening in Toronto in September 2017th.
The Ukrainian Catholic Women’s League is grateful for Dr. John’s continued support of this important community event!
