District Governor (and Canton Rotarian) Michelle Charles has set a goal for District 6650 to raise $100,000 for the Rotary International Disaster Relief Fund, specifically to benefit the Ukraine relief efforts. 
 
Therefore, we are all invited to "A Night for Ukraine", a special fundraising event on SUNDAY NOVEMBER 6, 2022!  (Please note Browns fans, if there are any of us left: it is a bye week for CLE). 
 
From Project Chair PDG Scott Schulick:
 
"Late last week, we were informed that the venue where we were to have the Ukraine Relief Event at St. Nikolas Hall in North Canton suffered extensive damage from a fire and will not be able to host our event on Saturday evening, November 5.
 
After several attempts to find another venue, we have been forced to move the event to Sunday, November 6, 2022 from 3-7pm at the St. George Serbian Center, 4667 Applegrove St. NW, North Canton, OH  44720.  We are sorry for any inconvenience.  The good news is that most of our entertainment, our caterer, and our special guest, Past RI President Barry Rassin, are still able to attend!
 
"We have been in contact with PDG Mykola Stebljanko in Odessa, Ukraine, and we are very pleased to learn how our efforts and proceeds will benefit aid on the ground and administered by local Rotarians."
 
Cost is $60 per person and includes an authentic Ukrainian ethnic menu, performances from local Ukrainian musicians and dancers, and a special appearance by Past RI President Barry Rassin.
 
Your Canton Rotary Board of Trustees has agreed to budget a $2500 donation to the District's Ukraine fundraising efforts from our Charitable Fund.
 
However, if you, your business or someone you know would like to also contribute to this cause, you may do so by buying tickets, purchasing a sponsorship, or donating an auction item worth $500 or more for the auction for the Night for Ukraine Dinner! 
 
Information is provided at this link: http://rotarydistrict6650.org/. All tickets purchased for this dinner will go toward the cost of the function itself, leaving all sponsorships and auction proceeds to go directly to the Ukraine relief effort!
 
WE WOULD LOVE TO HAVE A LARGE CONTINGENT OF CANTON ROTARIANS AT THIS DINNER TO SUPPORT BOTH UKRIANE AND OUR OWN DISTRICT GOVERNOR MICHELLE! Why not make it a Canton Rotary SOCIAL EVENT?
