Russian New Year's Celebration 2014
The Russian New Year’s Celebration was held on Friday, January 24, 2014 from 6:00pm-10:30pm at the Begich Middle School in Anchorage, Alaska. The Chugach Heritage Foundation sponsored the event this year with generous donations from: Chugach Alaska Corporation, Chugach Regional Resources Commission, and Kaladi Brothers Coffee. We want to thank all who contributed to the cause!
All proceeds raised by the silent auction went towards the CHF/Barney Uhart Endowment. A potluck and silent auction featuring Alaska Native artists was held before the main masking event. The Chugach region is honored again to present Alaskan Native New Year traditions. A good time was had by all and over 300 people attended.
CHF still has Russian New Year t-shirts for sale! They are all black shirts, the adult long sleeve ones are $15 each and children’s short sleeve ones are $10 each. All proceeds go to CHF for scholarships. Please call Stephen Grantier at (907) 550-4535 to order one. CHF now takes credit cards!
