Burns Night 2017: Eurovision Theme at Annual Expat Charity Gala
Kyiv Lions Club held its traditional Burns Night extravaganza at Kyiv’s Hilton Hotel on 22 April. With Europe’s favorite song contest taking place in the Ukrainian capital this year, the night’s Eurovision theme was both appropriate and inevitable. Twelve nations took part in an impromptu Eurovision contest, with Denmark’s Oliver Jahn emerging victorious. The real winners on the night were Ukrainian good causes, with USD 49,000 raised for charity.
