STOUGHTON, Wis. — An event in Stoughton this weekend aims to raise money and support to help resettle Ukrainian refugees in the community.

“The Ukrainian Weekend” started Friday at Coffee4All Bistro Cafe, 2300 U.S. Highway 51. The event, which runs from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, will feature Ukrainian food, music, art and presentations.

Some businesses in the community will donate 10% of their weekend earnings to the non-profit Stoughton Resettlement Assistance Program. So far, that program has resettled four families in the Stoughton area since May.
