Support Ukraine and learn to cook too

Delicious food awaits at the Ukrainian Cooking Class fundraising event Oct. 2 at The Resort at Soltera in Lakewood.

Hosted by Ukrainians of Colorado, President Marina Dubrova promises live Ukrainian music, red and white wine and help from Ukrainian Chef Bo Porytko — along with tasting all the dishes, of course.

The group formed eight years ago in response to the war starting in Ukraine in 2014, and due to the need for a social club for Ukrainians to “exchange ideas…preserve our heritage, our language…and help Ukraine,” Dubrova said.

The group hosts events almost weekly, with the most recent event being hosted by the Tattered Cover bookstore. Dubrova described it as educational, “presenting books available to Americans about the history of Ukraine culture and traditions."

The cooking class is a continuation of that, she said.

The organization is run solely by volunteers and all fundraising goes to Ukraine: internal refugees in Ukraine, orphanages, zoos and hospitals, Dubrova listed. The funds from a festival the group hosted in August, which she estimated was attended by about 2,500 people, bought “a large order of medical supplies that are going to be shipped next week.”

The cooking class is from 1:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. Oct. 2 at The Resort at Soltera, with limited seats left. And if cooking isn’t preferred, the group also is hosting a triathlon in Evergreen on the same day.

“We cannot stop, we can’t stop,” said Dubrova.
