Suffolk Theater will host a fundraising concert March 27 to benefit three organizations providing relief efforts for the ongoing humanitarian crisis in Ukraine.
ALL FOR UKRAINE will raise money for UNICEF, Doctors Without Borders and and United Ukrainian American Relief Committee, organizations working to assist Ukrainians suffering from the effects of the war.
UNICEF is working to ensure Ukraine’s children have access to safe water, nutrition, health care, education and protection; Doctors Without Borders is providing medical attention in Ukraine and neighboring countries where people have fled; and United Ukrainian American Relief Committee is purchasing medical supplies and equipment to send to their contacts and volunteer network in Ukraine, the theater said in a press release.
Tickets are $50 and are available online at SuffolkTheater.com or over the phone at 631-727-4343. One hundred percent of the proceeds will go directly to these three organizations , the theater said. Upon checkout, patrons will be able to choose which organization they’d like to have their ticket payment support.
ALL FOR UKRAINE will feature performances by a wide variety of musicians from all across Long Island, along with special guests and a raffle ticket auction. The concert will begin at 6 p.m.
“Everyone involved with the show – from the theater staff to the performers to the bartenders – is working for free so that every single dollar raised from ticket sales and other donations will go directly to the cause,” the press release said.
“What’s happening right now is absolutely devastating – both for those in Ukraine as well as our Ukrainian American neighbors here with us. As a place where thousands of people from all different walks of life come together every weekend, we wanted to do what we could with what we have,” Suffolk Theater Executive Director Gary Hygom said. “We have a stage; we have incredibly talented and generous musicians all around us; and a community that is capable of doing a whole lot of good.”
Thus far, the growing list of performers includes: The HooDoo Loungers, Corky Laing, Cassandra House, and Kerry Kearney Band. Many more will be announced, the theater said in the press release.
