As one of the largest yearly charity events, Burn’s Night will take place this Saturday in Kyiv. Organizers promise that this year it will be the party of all parties in the wild historic spirit of Scotland.

Traditionally a successful and highly respected charity event dedicated to the great Scottish poet, Robert Burns, it has been celebrated in Ukraine for the last 16 years.

A traditional dinner will be served including the famous haggis. Musical bands direct from Scotland will perform, along with Ukrainian stars. The purpose of the event is to raise funds for charitable projects implemented by the Kyiv Lions Club.

Since 2002 the Kyiv Lions Club has raised and donated more than $1 million for worthy causes in Kyiv and the surrounding areas.
