The net proceeds of the multi-day raffle will support the work of the UCC-CUF Humanitarian Appeal in delivering aid including food, medicine and other assistance to those in Ukraine.

“The Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation stands in solidarity alongside the people of Ukraine.” said Corey Smith, board chair of the EOCF. “Alberta is home to more than 345,000 people of Ukrainian heritage, and their culture and traditions are a significant part of the fabric of our community here in Oil Country.”

“I wish to thank the EOCF for their support during this extremely difficult time.” said Victor Hetmanczuk, lead of the humanitarian relief committee. “The UCC-CUF Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal has been working over the past several months to identify partners on the ground in Ukraine and surrounding countries who will be able to deliver aid to the affected population.”
