August 26th, 2023

On August 26th, 2023, the community of Scottsdale came together at the Western Spirit: Scottdale's Museum of the West to honor 32 years of Ukraine's Independence. Mayor of Scottsdale David D. Ortega supported the event with a formal proclamation recognizing August 24th, 2023 as Ukraine's Independence Day. We raised $1439.55 at this event for Dignitas Fund. The event concluded with a 7mi unescorted motorcade through the streets of Scottsdale.
