Привет! We are Russian Club from University of Central Florida, and welcome to our fundraising page. We are a cultural club at UCF in Orlando, Florida that works in our community and school to increase cultural awareness and involvment.

Our biggest event each year is our philanthropic ballet which we host at the University of Central Florida to benefit the Ukrainian Down Syndrome Organization. This organization's mission is to improve quality of life and create a new future for people with Down syndrome Ukraine. The organization provides information, advice and early intervention services to families throughout Ukraine. It campaigns to improve public awareness of the condition and to improve public policies. Activities include: individual assessment and consulting , providing expert advice direct to families and professionals, new parent support groups , offering accurate information and peer support when families most need it, early education classes, giving young children the best start in life, professional advice sessions for families, helping families support their children, information seminars for parents and professionals, conferences and workshops, web site and forum support for families
publications, awareness campaigns, Parent Club, volunteer program, cooperation with government sector, lobbying. This information and more can be found on the organization's website or brochure, both can be found on our page.

The event we are hosting to raise funds for this organization is a ballet performance of Don Qixote,  performed by the Russian Ballet of Orlando. The event will be held on February 26th 2017 in the Pegasus Ballroom of UCF's Student Union. Tickets are by donation and all proceeds will go toward the organization.  The event will include musical performances and a silent auction as well. 

The Ukrainian Down Syndrome Organization is one of the only organizations of its type in the country of Ukraine. This means that what we raise is making an incredible impact on the livesof children and adolescents living in Ukraine with Down Syndrome. Your donation, of any amount is going to make a significant difference in the life of these wonderful kids and will go very far.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read about our cause, and for any donation you can give!


Additionally, our students raise funds each year themselves to go towards their study abroad trip to Russian in June. Here is a link to the page for more information or if you have interest-
