12th Anniversary Benefit Dinner Held on May 14, 2016
Thank you to all who came out to our 12th Anniversary Benefit Dinner last month. We had an exceptional evening and raised over $60,000 that evening alone. However, we are still short of our goal of $100,000. This goal is what enables us to continue our events and programs without interruption so that fundraisers are held only every two years — instead of every year.
For those who were unable to make it or for those who would like to give more, you can still take part in our fundraising goal. Please click here to donate today.
We ask that you consider donating on a monthly basis. For only $100 a month you become a Vanguard supporter. Vanguards receive exclusive benefits such as special discounts on events, early registration for Sunday School programming, and more! As a thank you to the community, if we reach our goal of $100,000, we will set aside $20,000 as a seed fund for new projects. Any member of the Mohammed Webb community can propose new programming to be paid for out of the seed fund.
We would like to thank our distinguished guests, speakers, and performers for a lovely evening. Starting with Hind Makki’s on-point emceeing to Dr. Laleh Bakhtiar’s recognition as a Muslim American pioneer to Imam Khalid Latif’s moving keynote address and ending with Idris Phillips’s and Brother Ali’s jam session, the entire evening was a perfect embodiment of Mohammed Webb Foundation’s mission and the evening’s theme of “Creating Culture.”
We’d also like to again thank our sponsors for their support: Our Platinum Sponsors Pediatric Health Associates, Zakat Foundation of America, and The Weddle – Elshafie Family; Our Gold Sponsors Amana Mutual Funds Trust, Islamic Food and Nutrition Council of America, Smile Studio 87, Amina Saeed Law Firm; Our Silver Sponsors: Muhsen, University Islamic Financial, Islamic Relief USA, Kindi Academy, Helping Hand for Relief and Development, Heartspeak Institute, and our Pearl Sponsor: Desmond & Ahern, Ltd.
This is your community. Please help us to reach our goal by making a donation today. As Imam Latif so eloquently put it that evening, as Muslim Americans we must be proactive – not reactive – in our approach to life. Your support of Mohammed Webb Foundation is Insha’Allah making that possible.
May Allah (SWT) bless you for your dedication and your support.
