Bogdan Strutynsky, head of the National Association of Performers of Ukraine which subsists the Care Home for Retired Performers, thanked Inner Wheel Club of Kyiv for their care and attention and expressed hope for continuing cooperation with Inner Wheel in the current and future projects.
“Projects like “Scenes from Our Hearts” touch our souls, make us more humane and pay our attention to those who are in need”,- noted Mr. Strutynsky.
Chestnut Charity Ball was held in support of the Scenes from our Hearts initiative, which is aimed at bolstering the Care Home for Retired Performers named after N. Uzhviy.
As of now, we have raised UAH45000 at the Ukrainian Philanthropic Marketplace and Inner Wheel initiates partial purchasing of medical beds for the Care Home. A silent auction of the «Off Stage» photo art project created by Vera Blansh and Eugene Khandusenko was held during the Ball. Funds raised from the sale of the «Off Stage» photo prints will be used for purchasing medical equipment the Care Home for Retired Performers.
Inner Wheel’s initiative was also supported by many well-known Ukrainian actors, including Olesya Zhurakivska, Inna Mirishnichenko and actors of three Kyiv theatres: Kyiv National Operetta directed by Bohdan Strutynsky, Kyiv Municipal Opera and Ballet Theatre for Youth directed by Yuriy Shchur and Stage Director Oksana Trananeko, and Theatre on Podil with their Art Director Vitaliy Malakhov.
Inner Wheel Kyiv expresses its deep gratitude to the performers who created fantastic atmosphere of the Ball: Galina Gregorchak, Valeria Tulis, Serhiy Avdeev, Oleksandr Chuvpylo, soloists of the Kyiv National Operetta, Artem Shoshyn and Yulia Kuzmych, ballet dancers, Ukrainian-Spanish Center “Flamenco Theatre” directed by Olga Sharapa. Exciting atmosphere of the night would not have been possible without Andriy Burlutsky, master of the ceremony, and Maksym Kozolup, who directed the Ball's concert program.
