The company behind three Erie area restaurants and Logistics Plus are teaming up to celebrate Ukrainian food and culture and raise money for relief, according to an announcement Tuesday.

Red Letter Hospitality's restaurants - The Cork 1794, The Skunk and Goat Tavern, and Molly Brannigan's - will feature Ukrainian menus, food, and cocktails Aug. 8-14.

Each restaurant will dedicate a day for its own unique food specials and guests including local Ukrainian artists and musicians: 

  • Tuesday, Aug. 9 - The Skunk & Goat Tavern
  • Wednesday, Aug. 10 - Molly Brannigan's 
  • Thursday, Aug. 11 - The Cork 1794 featuring a live Ukrainian band

Five percent of all sales will go towards ongoing Ukrainian relief in cooperation with First Ukrainian Pentecostal Church.

"We want people to know that Ukraine is a sovereign nation with thousands of years of history, with its own traditions, with its own great food," said Yuriy Ostapyak, COO for Logistics Plus and a Ukraine-born U.S. citizen. "We also want to show off some of the Ukrainian culture, and show the need the Ukrainian people have, and also, it's not just about the need, but it's also about support."
