Stand with Ukraine
May 20 @ 6:30pm - 1:00am
Russia’s attack on Ukraine has left a lot of us feeling hopeless and asking, “how can I help?” We set out to find a way to make a positive impact while also shedding light on an amazing organization working directly on the ground helping people to fight, survive, and prevail.
On May 20th 2022 we’ll be holding a giant party to raise funds for #StandwithUkraineMN.
- Mystery Guest Trivia: 7:30pm
- Half-Buzzed Spelling Bee: 9:30pm
- Ukrainian performances: Details coming
- All ages until 9pm (21+ after 9pm)
- $10 at the door for unlimited arcade games
- Food is available for purchase
- Prizes (and other fun developments) to be announced as the date approaches
HOW TO DONATE
- Can Can is donating ALL proceeds from the Ukrainian style beer collab with Saint Paul Brewing.
- There will be numerous ways to donate directly at the party via online donation or merch purchase.
Donations are processed through the Ukrainian American Community Center (UACC) a Minneapolis-based 501(c)(3) and the fiscal sponsor of #StandWithUkraineMN.
The UACC is a non-profit that works with vetted organizations experienced in getting aid to where it is needed. They focus their efforts on filling in the gaps that the big organizations miss and that small organizations don’t focus on. They help bring aid to the front lines in the form of protective gear and medical supplies. As a Minneapolis-based organization, the families connected to UACC are directly affected by the war and often have loved ones abroad living through the chaos. We chose to help this organization because of its direct impact not only on our community but also on the communities abroad.
Who’s Throwing the Party?
Sponsors: Matt Osterman, Twin Cities Film Festival, Can Can Wonderland, and #StandwithUkraineMN
While assisting Ukraine is the sole focus this year, we understand they are not and will not be the only ones in need, now and in the future. We hope with the success of this event, we will be able to continue raising awareness and aid for the communities who need it most. We’re calling this the first annual “Spring-a-Ling” party in hopes that it becomes an annual event!
*There is a standard $10 admission fee to Can Can Wonderland which includes FREE PLAY on the arcade and video games and on-stage entertainment.
