Eurovision artists join charity auction for the Ukrainian Council Of NSW
Past Ukrainian Eurovision winners and competing artists are taking part in a charity auction organised by the Ukrainian Council Of NSW.
The auction not only includes lots from Eurovision artists but also from recognisable Ukrainian brands. Proceeds go to the Defend Ukraine Appeal helping the front line with med-evac cars and humanitarian aid during the war in Ukraine.
Anyone from Australia can participate and compete for the lots featured in the auction or donate to the cause.
The Ukrainian Council of NSW (UCNSW or ОУГ) was formed in 1949. Its mission is to be a strong coordinating body representing all Ukrainians in New South Wales. Their work involves promoting Ukrainian culture and language, being an effective lobby on Ukrainian matters to Government and the broader community, and strengthen participation at all events, programs and projects.
Auction items from Eurovision artists include:
A signed vinyl record of 'Kryla' by Eurovision 2016 winner, Jamala. 'Kryla' was released in 2018.
A panama hat from Eurovision 2022 winners Kalush Orchestra.
A 'Heart of Steel' t-shirt (size large) from Ukrainian Eurovision 2023 artists Tvorchi.
A scarf from Ukrainian singer Anastasia Prudius aka KOLA. KOLA competed in the Eurovision 2017 Ukrainian national selection final with the song 'Flow' under her name Anastasia Prudius. She finished in 6th place in semi-final 3.
The goal is to raise $20,000. The auction closes on August 27 at 9pm AEST.
