On Sunday, May 7, 2006, Jim Konicki, Co-chair of Polonia Global Fund presented a check for $5,000 to Mrs. Jeanmarie Vollmer, Chair of PolishFest.
PGF obtained a grant in support of the cultural programs offered at PolishFest. The grant was funded through the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation.
PolishFest is an annual three-day celebration of Polish and Polish-American arts, literature, music, culture, history, and, of course, food. PolishFest is held in New York’s Capitol Region in the Town of Colonie.
PGF is proud to assist PolishFest, a wonderful event in New York’s Capitol Region. The Capitol Region is an area with a long tradition of multi-cultural understanding and celebration. In keeping with the goals of PGF, PolishFest provides attendees with a sense of connectedness to and understanding of the Polish and Polish-American experience.
