CAIR-PA Philadelphia Chapter Tenth Anniversary Banquet
Saturday, March 12, 2016 | Ten Years of Service. A Decade of Success.
Dear Friends and Supporters of CAIR-Philadelphia,
Time flies! This year, CAIR-Philadelphia is celebrating its 10th Anniversary Banquet! We would be most honored if you and your family could join us as we mark this important milestone at our Tenth Annual Banquet on March 12th at the Springfield Country Club.
For those of you who are not familiar with our banquet, it is the largest annual gathering of Muslims in the Greater Delaware Valley. Our community comes together to support CAIR-Philadelphia, learn about its many accomplishments and activities, and to network, shop, and simply enjoy an entertaining evening.
Reception begins at 5:00 pm with an opportunity to meet old friends, make new ones, and visit our sponsors’ vending tables for various products and services. Following evening prayers, you will enjoy a buffet dinner.
The evening continues with community members narrating a dynamic presentation highlighting CAIR-Philadelphia’s achievements in the past 10 years and our goals for the future, directed by our creative executive director, Jacob Bender. Those of you who have witnessed his productions in the past will eagerly await this portion of the program! Joining in this portion of the program will be Pennsylvania State Senator Jason Dawkins and Philadelphia City Councilman Curtis Jones.
At the same time, our children will have an enjoyable evening with Ilyas & Duck. Ilyas & Duck storybooks combine relatable characters, beautiful illustrations, heartfelt stories, and the right touch of humor to create a wonderful and tasteful experience for young Muslim children.
Finally, CAIR-Philadelphia would not have survived and thrived these past 10 years without our community’s spiritual and financial support – for which we thank you wholeheartedly.
Welcome to our Second Decade, and we look forward to celebrating with you on March 12th!
