BCU sponsors $10,000 for the Miss Ukrainian Canada 2018 Cultural Show and is named Title Sponsor

Toronto, ON – Miss Ukrainian Canada (MUC) is proud to announce Buduchnist Credit Union (BCU) as the Title Sponsor for the Miss Canada 2018 Cultural Show. BCU is sponsoring $10,000 for the event.

Miss Ukrainian Canada promotes Ukrainian culture by showcasing the talents and community activities of Ukrainian-Canadian women. Participants are selected based on their professional, academic, volunteer, and athletic achievements.

“The Miss Ukrainian Canada organization is excited to welcome BCU as the Title Sponsor of our cultural event,” said Maksym Kuprieiev, Executive Director, MUC 2018. “BCU is the perfect sponsor for our project because BCU values the role of youth within the community”.

Miss Ukrainian Canada features a Social Project competition. The participants are required to submit a proposal of a Ukraine-related social or volunteer project. Anastasia Myronenko won the Social Project competition in 2016 for her project in Dnipro region of Ukraine.  She replaced an old heating system in the Petrykivka art school right before the start of the cold winter season.

“BCU is proud to sponsor Miss Ukrainian Canada 2018”, said Irene Hryniuk, BCU Director. “We are impressed by the candidates’ wide breadth of experience and talent. We are also encouraged by their drive and creativity to make a positive change in the Ukrainian community”.
