  Approximately 50 children and parents attended the City of Revere Parks & Recreation Department’s Paint Night fundraiser for Ukraine and its children. Instead of paying a registration fee, they asked guests to donate to UNICEF, a humanitarian organization that helps war victims. Sunflower – Ukraine’s national flower – artwork will hang in City Hall before the artists take them home. For information, visit https://www.unicefusa.org/war-ukraine.
