Why? Because shopping for prizes can be a fun time for everyone. It can also generate immediate interest in your event as the word spreads about the prizes. Start by having each future bridesmaid and groomsmen to share the costs for each raffle prize/auction basket. It gets things going. Put a cap on the value of prize baskets to stay focused, but make sure you have a variety of themes for your baskets. Do not duplicate  themes for your prize baskets. When it comes to the more expensive grand prize or door prize, let each of the parents buy the bigger prizes for the pre-wedding party.

On Thursday, Sept. 20, 2018, a permanent plaque recalling the pivotal research the world’s first and foremost legal scholar on genocide did with regards to the Great Famine of 1932-33 in Soviet Ukraine, was unveiled in New York City.
Spearheaded by the Ukrainian Canadian Civil Liberties Foundation ( in collaboration with the Ukrainian Institute of America, the initiative was made possible by the generosity of Ukrainian and Jewish donors in both Canada and the United States, and was unveiled 65 years to the day on which Dr. Raphael Lemkin labeled the Famine of 1932-33, now known as the Holodomor, as a “classic example of Soviet genocide.” 
“He was the first to call it what it was,” said UCCLF’s Dr. Lubomyr Luciuk, who was on hand to help unveil the commemorative marker.
