Event Information

2021 Christmas Dinner WEBSenza-titolo-5



To celebrate the end of 2021 we invite you and your families to join us for our annual Christmas Dinner & Social. The dinner is the most important event of the year for our Association, and it serves a dual purpose: providing our members with their families and friends the chance to socialize and celebrate together the end of the year, and servicing needy children in Europe with a charity fundraising that will give them the opportunity to receive toys and supplies for the Christmas Holidays. This year the event will be held at the Hotel-Resort Panska Gora in Lviv, Ukraine, on Saturday, December 18. The evening will begin with cocktail hour starting at 6:00 p.m., followed by the dinner at 7:00 p.m. and by the charity auction and the awarding ceremony at 9:00 p.m., the night will continue with live music, christmas quiz and raffle. The funds from the event will go to the Toy Drop - Airborne Veterans For Children In Need - Project supported by our Operational Detachment. Tickets are €58.00 per person (EPA Members and their Families) and €68.00 per person (Guests) and the dress is EPA Social Uniform/Class A Uniform (Military personnel) and Semi-Formal/Formal Attire (Civilian personnel). At the time of the event the EPA Honor Cross, the EPA Merit Cross, the EPA Loyal Service Medal, as well as other internal and international decorations will be awarded to our members or non-members who offered their meritorious service, continuous commitment or financial support to the Association’s activities and operations. Auction prizes are sought for the benefit of the Operational Detachment who will care of the charity. I’m sure all of you will both enjoy this great event and the cultural and social life of Lviv and the Galicia/Western Ukraine. Any attendees requiring accommodation are advised that the Hotel-Resort Panska Gora can arrange rooms, suites and cottages at special rates, especially if booked early. For those who want to attend our Jump and/or Marksmanship events, there is also the option of a 3 day package (with transfer to the Shooting Range and Drop Zone and back to Hotel). Please contact the office if you are interested in the whole package.
