Anera is hosting an interfaith Iftar and fundraiser in Seattle on Wednesday, May 30th at Saint Mark’s Episcopal Cathedral Skinner Auditorium in the Saint Nicholas Building. The event will feature Teen Vogue’s chef Abeer Naijar, who will be giving a cooking demonstration. While Ramadan and Iftar being the theme of the dinner, we invite and encourage communities of all faiths to attend in solidarity with refugees. All proceeds will go to sending food and relief to families in Palestine and Lebanon. This is vital to supporting those affected by the critical situation in Gaza.
More information is available on the Facebook event page: ANERA Iftar & Fundraiser Event
