“Every dollar that goes to us, we know exactly where it’s going to end up and it’s going to end up in a hospital, it’s going to end up with soldiers, its going to end up with Ukrainian medics,” Natasha Sazonova, volunteer with Maidan United, explained.
Natasha says a portion of the ticket sales bought through the organization will go toward helping the devastated country.
Sazonova is from Ukraine and says some of her family and friends are still overseas.
“I just want to thank everyone in Connecticut for staying with Ukraine. Connecticut people have been so amazing,” Sazonova added.
