Gaza Strong: Gather for Gaza Humanitarian Relief & Hope

THIS EVENT IS SOLD OUT

Dinner | Auction | Music | Keynote Address | Awards

April 20, 2024 | 5:30pm – 9pm | $100 per person

Mercer Island Community Center: 8236 SE 24th St | Mercer Island, WA 98040


In the spirit of humanity and compassion, join us to support the families of Gaza facing inhumane conditions. Gaza’s inhabitants are enduring relentless attacks from the Israeli military, resulting in critical shortages of vital resources such as food, water, and medical care. Famine looms large, and diseases surge as sanitation and access to clean water crumble under the weight of constant assaults. Trapped in a small area of land with their homes reduced to rubble, families find themselves in the throes of a profound humanitarian crisis.

Join our fundraising event, where the focus is not just on providing aid but also on giving hope. Together, let’s extend a helping hand to deliver food, temporary shelters, and essential medical supplies to the families in Gaza. They need our collective empathy and support to navigate these dire times.

Our evening will include a buffet dinner, music and poetry, a keynote presentation, auction, and community award presentation.
