To benefit Women & Children’s Health Services at Greenwich Hospital

Our 3rd Annual Russian-Ukrainian Holiday Fair on December 10 from 3-6 at a beautiful, newly constructed and professionally staged mansion at 9 Oakley Lane in Greenwich.

We started this initiative in 2015 and this will be our third successful benefit event in Greenwich where we strive to make a difference in our community by raising and donating money to Greenwich Hospital. Each year, we improve our logistics, bring in new vendors and add more artists for what turns out to be a beautiful Christmas affair with about 250 guests in attendance to enjoy the art, live music, fashion show from Russian/Ukrainian fashion designers, gourmet food catering, wine and of course gifts from our vendors.

10% of all proceeds from vendor sales, donations and collections at the door including silent auction go to benefit Women and Children’s Health Services at Greenwich Hospital.
