Please be reminded that our 3rd Annual Iftar Dinner will be Tuesday, August 14th from 6pm to 9pm. (5:30 Registration).
Please purchase your tickets today!
Annually, the dinner draws about a 100 interfaith leaders, friends and supporters of MCN.
Keynote speaker to be announced soon!
Proceeds from tickets will go to our monthly soup kitchen and our cross-cultural engagement activities. We have also invited Islamic Relief, a humanitarian aid NGO and encourage our guests to give in the name of the holy month of Ramadan to the work they do. This year we will focus our grassroots fundraising efforts on the 19 million people who are facing food insecurities in Africa's Sahel region because of continued drought.
Also, we will be collecting gifts for our Gift for Eid project at the iftar. Please bring along a new gift under $20 and we will distribute to a social service organization within NYC. Last year we provided over 250 gifts to social service organizations all over NYC. This year we have a goal of atleast doubling this number! Please help us accomplish this goal by purchasing gifts or donating generously during the month of Ramadan.
