Ramadan and a Call for Sponsors

Sunnyside, NY
Assalaamu alaikum,
Ramadan is once again around the corner and we look forward to continuing our tradition of offering Friday iftaars to the community. In years' past, this has been possible due to the generosity of the community itself with individual sponsorship of iftaars. This year we expect the cost of each iftaar to range between $500 and $550 per dinner which includes the dinner itself, utensils, and room rental.
If you would like to contribute towards an iftaar, please contact Alexandra or Yasmin through the Meetup Website with your commitment and donation amount. If you want to sponsor an iftaar but do not have the funds to sponsor an entire iftaar, some members have sponsored half an iftaar by donating $250.
As with past years, we will be collecting donations for a local charity. At the last planning meeting, we identified Turning Point for Women and Families as a charity that is much in need of funding. A collection tin will be put out for donations at each iftaar which will cover the remaining cost of the iftaar itself (assuming we do not meet our goal) and the designated charity. Please note that distribution will only be necessary if we are not able to raise enough money in sponsorship, otherwise 100% of the money collected will go to Turning Point. Our first Ramadan dinner will be on Friday July 12, we look forward to seeing you!
