Around 4000 people attended this fantastic charity event throughout the day. Events at the Picnic included live musical entertainment from some well-known performers and DJs, games for adults and kids, a special Kid's Zone, fireworks, a Grand Raffle, and of course, tasty food and cold beverages all provided by Chamber Members. The Picnic is a long-standing tradition that many Ukrainians have enjoyed over the years and it gives us great pleasure to be able to share a little slice of America right here in Kyiv with our friends and neighbors. The majority of attendees and Sponsors of this event are Members of the American Chamber of Commerce and their employees and families and the Picnic is open to all who would like to attend. 

The American Chamber of Commerce in Ukraine working closely with our partners was proud to again organize the American Independence Day Charity Picnic which has become an outstanding tradition that the entire Kyiv community looks forward to as a start to the summer season. The Charity Picnic is one of the most heavily sponsored events on the social calendar that brings together many Chamber Member companies in support of this wonderful family event that celebrates freedom, democracy and friendship among nations while raising money for those who are less fortunate. This is the 13th year that this Picnic has taken place in Ukraine and it is no accident that it coincides with Ukraine's Independence and pursuit of a democratically driven market economy.

This year's Independence Day Picnic marks the beginning of a groundbreaking new corporate philanthropy program with our charity partner Ukrainian Citizen Action Network's (UCAN). UCAN is a United States Agency for International Development (USAID) funded non-profit organization supporting Ukraine's growing civil society through innovative approaches like social entrepreneurship and public-private partnerships. Proceeds from this Charitable Event will be matched and then donated through UCAN's Corporate Matching Grants program to local worthy NGO's throughout Ukraine.

Gala Radio played music between activities & live entertainment.

There was a Kid's Zone with a Children Playground sponsored by Nestle, a small stage where each child received a free prize donated by our generous Sponsors, and Dominic organized contests for the kids.
