On June 30, 2013, in Vernon Hills, IL, Family Picnic Raised Funds for Maria Svitchova at Half Day Woods, organized by Vlada Korol of Voila Events and community leaders.
The event attracted over 100 adults and children who came out together to raise funds for Maria Svitchova, a young woman who was recently diagnosed with rare cancer, that appears in women between the age of 25-35. She discovered these devastating news only few months after she gave birth to her second child. Maria is the main financial support for her family. The proceeds for the event donated to her reached $3,000 from tickets and the auction.
This good-cause event has also offered some entertainment, to suit everyone’s taste — from contests, games, sports, to music, libations, and delicious food. While popular local djs from KGBeats: DJ Baton and Dmitry Lovebone, spun some of community’s favorite tracks, attendees socialized, as well as enjoyed responsibly some sponsored vodka cocktails from Cardinal Wine & Spirits and other libations, along with catered food offerings, including barbeque and other tasty treats.
Vlada Korol, founder of Voila Events remarked that “It was an honor to organize this event to help a community member. It was great to see many sponsors and community leaders stepping up to help make this event a huge success.”
The event was sponsored by: Pirogovsky Frenderman, LTD (Law Firm) Fresh Farms, Lifeway, Voila Events, Cardinal Wine & Spirits, Kedvon Pharmacy, ZaZa Salon, North Suburban Limousine, Jane Allen Events, KG Beats, Julie’s Closet, Leah Chavie & Skincare Boutique, Auto Art, Bravo International Group, Ravinia, Kontinent Media, Arts4Kids Foundation and others.
