Razom, a non-profit focused on providing humanitarian war relief for Ukraine, for a fundraising event focused on shining a spotlight on Russia’s continued war against Ukraine. Razom has provided more than 200 tons of tactical medicine, hospital supplies, and medicines to regions most affected by Russia’s inhumane invasion of Ukraine. The proceeds from this event will go towards much-needed individual first aid kits (IFAKs), which include items such as tourniquets, gauze, and burn dressing. The cost of one IFAK is approximately $100.00. To donate directly towards medical kits, please click on the link here.

Background

On February 24, 2022, Russia launched a full-scale military invasion of Ukraine. Russia’s brutal war has caused at least 5,000 civilian deaths. At least seven million people fled to other countries, including the United States. While Russia’s brutal war no longer makes the headlines, Russia continues to terrorize the civilian population of Ukraine by indiscriminately launching rockets targeting civilian infrastructure such as shopping malls, universities, and churches. To this day, there are cities that are bombed every day and every day there are civilian casualties.

Razom For Ukraine

Razom, which means “together” in Ukrainian, believes deeply in the enormous potential of dedicated volunteers around the world united by a single goal: to unlock the potential of Ukraine. Razom works towards that mission by creating spaces where people meet, partner and do. Razom was born out of the Revolution of Dignity in 2014 when millions of people worked together and risked their lives to build a pathway to a better future for Ukraine. Its mission is to unlock Ukraine’s potential and build toward a more prosperous and democratic Ukraine.

Today, Razom Emergency Response project is providing urgent help in the face of an extreme situation: the sovereign nation of Ukraine is forced to deal with a brutal invasion. Razom is responding by working with volunteers on the ground and partner organizations to provide critical humanitarian war relief and recovery depending on the most urgent needs as they evolve. Tactical medical equipment and hospital supplies are already in the hands of the people who are saving lives. More is on the way nearly every day. We are also evacuating children with disabilities and their families to safety, and advocating on behalf of Ukraine. More at www.razomforukraine.org/razom-emergency-response/

The Venue

The Detroit Club has a rich history of being celebrated as the premier meeting place for some of the greatest business minds of our time. The meetings held behind these doors eventually led to a new age of industry and held an integral part in launching our nation into the superpower that it is today. These doors have opened once again to bring together the brightest and best minds that our great city has to offer. If you are attending the fundraising event in person you can expect to enjoy a lavish strolling dinner and open bar throughout the event. Staying at the Detroit Club offers a special kind of experience right in the heart of Detroit. There are twenty-one, contemporarily crafted rooms to choose from, each honorably pays tribute to the architectural beauty that Wilson Eyre masterfully crafted in 1891.
