The Chamber brought in the Chuckwagon Gang - a group of Texans who love to cook - to prepare a real Texas barbecue, complete with beans and slaw. We once again supplied plenty of free cold beverages and ice cream and featured kids activities (children`s playground) and a Grand Raffle. For the first time in the nine-year history of the Fourth of July Picnic in Ukraine, the event culminated with an amazing fireworks display sponsored by Golden Telecom GSM.That was a little slice of America right in your own backyard in Kyiv! 

A lot of people brought their friends & family for a fun day of food, beverages, music, games, and special surprises! Everyone was there. Beach chairs, blankets, frisbees, footballs and such were highly encouraged! There was a Grand Raffle, which included great prizes such as airline tickets, mobile phones, valuable gift certificates, power tools and much more! Advanced tickets were available at our offices and proved to be great gifts for employees and friends!

We would like to thank our generous Sponsors without whose help the event would not have been successful!
