Charity conference and dinner were organized Kyiv School of Economics (The Kyiv School of Economics).

The event brought together public figures from around the world, including Nobel-prize winners, military officers, economists and investors, historians, government officials, and Ukrainians who have experienced the war firsthand. They were able to convey the conflict's true intensity and political reality, while discussing the war's global political and economic implications outlining possible future scenarios – and solutions.

“Many still do not understand the impact this war will have – and is currently having – on other parts of life and the rest of the world,” said Tymofiy Mylovanov, President at Kyiv School of Economics, “with this event, we were able to channel everything the Ukrainian people have been feeling and make it make sense to the rest of the world, while raising money for the benefit of Ukraine and the Ukrainian people, discuss the impact of the war, and what comes next: with focus on reconstruction, humanitarian aid, and Ukraine's role in the new world architecture.

After the conference, a charity auction and dinner were held to honor the resilience and the spirit of the Ukrainian people, featuring Ukrainians who shared their stories of overcoming the challenges of the war, resisting the Russian invasion, and maintaining and developing a democracy during the war.

The charity auction included pieces of the Mriya aircraft carrier destroyed in combat, Ukrainian art, and tickets to a private dinner with President Zelensky. The $1,14 raised will help benefit the charities and Kyiv School of Economics, which will use the money to support the people of Ukraine through humanitarian efforts.

Mayor Eric Adams also made an appearance and spoke to the crowd during reception. “When this war first started, and people stated that ‘in days, the Ukrainian people would fall,’ I said, ‘you just don’t know the Ukrainian people.’” He made further remarks on the benefits Ukrainian immigrants have made for the United States and especially New York City, as a true testament to the will and strength of its people.
