Art Auction Fundraiser to Benefit Humanitarian Aid to Ukraine

In light of the ongoing war in Ukraine and the humanitarian crisis faced by millions of Ukrainian children and families, Pearl S. Buck International will host an art auction fundraiser to benefit humanitarian aid to the Ukrainian people. The art auction will be on Thursday, June 23, from 6-8:30 pm at our headquarters located at 520 Dublin Road, Perkasie, PA 18944.

In keeping with the cross-cultural and humanitarian legacy of our founder, Pearl S. Buck International celebrates the courageous and inspiring people of Ukraine in their fight for freedom and democracy.

A journey through the eyes of Ukrainian artists from the front lines.

Join us for what promises to be an inspiring evening. This fundraiser event will feature a live and silent auction of original artwork by Ukrainian artists on the front lines of the assault on their country. Learn about their stories in their own words through video and written testimonials.

U.S. Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick of Pennsylvania’s First District, who spent many years working in Ukraine and with the Ukrainian people, will make a special appearance and remarks via video. Ukrainian family members of those displaced by war and those who have made it here seeking refuge will also be on hand to speak about their journey.

Pearl S. Buck International continues in the footsteps of Pearl S. Buck by bridging cultures, changing lives, and creating hope. Proceeds from the artwork auction will be donated to a vetted international organization working on the ground supporting the Ukrainian people in their time of need.

Jamie Hollander Catering will be catering this event.

Tickets are limited and will go quickly. Event sponsorship opportunities are also available. Register today at: www.pearlsbuck.org/ukraine.
