As part of our annual fundraiser known as Jammerthon, we included a custom-designed “Stand With Ukraine” t-shirt as a premium. The funds were given to the Kosciuszko Foundation to help support their work with the Ukrainian refugees in Poland. Over 500 listeners supported that cause and received the t-shirt. After the expenses for manufacturing and mailing, the net proceeds were $3,500.
In the spirit of the holidays, Keith Stras, Secretary and PJN Board of Directors member made the check presentation during a festive affair featuring Chicago’s Lira Ensemble. Lidia Filus, President of the Chicago Chapter of the Kosciuszko Foundation accepted the check, and several Chicago board members were on hand for the presentation. The actual check was delivered to Marek Skulimowski, President and Executive Director in New York.
Thank you Polka Jammer fans for your support and generosity.
