An event downtown designed to show support for Ukraine while raising money to help its people generated $5,725 in funds.
On Saturday, Evel Pie gave patrons the chance to dump bottles of Russian-branded vodka into the street in exchange for a $300 donation. The bar-restaurant replaced that vodka with a Ukrainian brand. Shots were sold for $5 apiece, and they reportedly sold out in less than 72 hours.
The donation will be distributed between the International Committee of the Red Cross and World Central Kitchens.
