Malanka 2020 – Ukrainian New Year’s Eve

Another successful event!  We once again enjoyed a wonderful evening celebrating the new year beginning with entertainment by the Ukrainian Prairie Band and then followed by a delicious traditional Ukrainian buffet dinner.  After dinner we were entertained by two local dance ensembles.  Dovbush Ukrainian Dancers and Kvitka Ukrainian School of Dance performed a series of dances that were superb and thoroughly enjoyed by everyone.  This was followed by S-Bahn, a very popular and entertaining local band.  We danced the night away to a fabulous variety of music before welcoming in the new year at midnight.

A special thank you to Dixon Mitchell Investment Counsel, a local wealth management firm.  We are very grateful for their generous donation and sponsorship of Malanka 2020.  With Dixon Mitchell’s financial support, we were able to provide our guests with a fabulous evening of entertainment.  We are pleased to pass on Dixon Mitchell’s contact information: www.dixonmitchell.com
