2010 Annual Testimonial Dinner

The Osvita Foundation Inc. presents the 2010 Testimonial Dinner

Thursday, June 3 at Canad Inn Club Regent

In support of the English-Ukrainian Bilingual Program in Manitoba.

The Osvita Foundation is very proud to announce

this year's Honouree :

Lesia Szwaluk



On Thursday, June 3rd, The Osvita Foundation Inc. is sponsoring its Annual Testimonial Dinner at which time it recognizes an individual whose outstanding community service and charitable contribution has enhanced and supported the promotion of Ukrainian language, culture and history.


The Osvita Foundation Inc. was established in 1982 as a charitable organization that provides support and funding for the Manitoba Parents for Ukrainian Education.


The Osvita Foundation is committed to supporting excellence in education through the promotion of the English Ukrainian Bilingual Program (EUBP). This year the EUBP is celebrating 30 years of Ukrainian language education in the public schools of Manitoba.


At this year’s testimonial dinner the Osvita Foundation is pleased to honour Mrs. Lesia Szwaluk, Executive Director of the Ukrainian Canadian Foundation of Taras Shevchenko. Lesia has been a pillar in the Ukrainian community and has made an outstanding contribution, not only in the Ukrainian community, but also, in the broader community on a local, national and international level. Her efforts in promoting the English Ukrainian Bilingual program from its very beginning to the present is worthy of mention. Lesia was very actively involved while her children attended the Program and continued to be involved long after her children graduated from the Program. Presently, she acts as an advisory member of the Manitoba Parents for Ukrainian Education. Her many accomplishments will be highlighted at the annual banquet.


The Board of Directors of the Osvita Foundation invites you to join us in honouring Lesia on June 3rd at Canad Inns - Club Regent, 1415 Regent Avenue West.  A ticket order form can be downloaded on line or by contacting our office at, 1215-F Henderson Highway. 


Since we are celebrating 30 years of the EUBP in Manitoba, there will be a display highlighting the achievements and events from each of the schools where the Program is offered.  Also, there will be a Silent Auction and a Raffle featuring donations of art works from prominent Ukrainian artists. Again this year, we are pleased to offer a complimentary Martini for our guests, generously provided by Multiculture Marketing Importers of Slava Vodka. 



Hope you can join us to help honour Lesia Szwaluk and to continue to support the Ukrainian Bilingual Program in Manitoba.
