Pink Panama Kalush Orchestra
The winners of this year's Eurovision Kalush Orchestra raised over 11 million hryvnias for the pink panama.
The fundraiser was organized by Serhiy Prytula and members of the winning band. In total, more than 31,000 people applied to the Armed Forces and claimed Panama. The maximum rate per person is UAH 64,800.
The new owner of the gentlemen was a man who made 5 bets. The winner was a resident of the Czech Republic named Vladimir.
At the beginning of the auction, the highest bid for the microphone was $ 45,000. During the auction, it was raised 20 times.
Eventually, the Kalush Orchestra's Eurovision statuette was sold at an online auction for $ 900,000. Donati was going to use it in cryptocurrency.
Anatoliy Chumychkin, an entrepreneur from the Kalush community in the Ivano-Frankivsk region, founder of the ChAS group of companies, the WhiteBit crypto community and diaspora members from the United States, who offered $ 275,000, competed for the microphone.
In the end, Chumichkin, who dreamed of keeping the crystal microphone in Kalush, offered $ 900,000. He raised the stakes several times, starting at $ 28,000.
His bet was interrupted several times by the WhiteBit crypto community, raising $ 900,000 to please Ukrainian fighters. They became the winners of the auction.
Where will the money go?
The funds will be used to purchase the PD-2 UAV complex from three sides and a ground station and other equipment. According to Serhiy Prytula, the money raised at the Panama auction and the microphone fee are enough.
It will be recalled that on May 15, the Ukrainian band Kalush Orchestra won the Eurovision Song Contest 2022 with the song "Stephanie", which took place in the Italian city of Turin.
Later, the Kalush Orchestra presented a video for the winning song "Stephanie".
As it became known, Ukrposhta will later release a stamp dedicated to the Kalush Orchestra.
