UNICO Golf Tournament Benefits St. Vladimir’s Ukrainian Church

The Scranton Chapter of UNICO National will donate all proceeds of its second annual golf tournament to St. Vladimir’s Ukrainian Catholic Church, 7th Avenue, Scranton. Since the early days of the crisis in Ukraine, Fr. Myron Myronyuk and the congregation of the church have been vigorous in collecting and providing relief for the refugees.

UNICO at regional and national levels have made a unanimous decision that in lieu of honoring a local leader or supporting local charities and causes, UNICO would support the efforts of Fr. Myron and Ukrainian relief. Fr. Myronyuck also pastors at SS. Peter and Paul Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church, Wilkes Barre.

Sponsorships at various levels are available and information may be obtained by visiting the unicoscranton,org website, the Scranton unico facebook page or callingĀ  570-499-8469.
