JENKINTOWN, Pa. – Members of the Program Committee of the Ukrainian American Senior Citizens Association (UASCA) in Philadelphia conducted a raffle to promote a Canada and New England cruise to benefit the Ukrainian Educational and Cultural Center. The cruise will sail round-trip from New York to Portland and Bar Harbor (Maine), St. John (New Brunswick) and Halifax (Nova Scotia) on the Norwegian Escape on September 23-30.
As a result of the lottery, $5,000 was raised and donated to the UECC at the seniors’ monthly meeting on May 16. The cruise is being planned by Zenia’s Travel Club, which conducted the excursion for the seniors. Other sponsors for the fund-raiser were the Nasevich Funeral Home, the Ukrainian Selfreliance Federal Credit Union and the Passage Restaurant in Philadelphia.
