Dinner on the Deck Fundraiser & Auction
Saturday, August 23, 2014 from 6:00 PM to 10:00 PM (PDT)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
***We have reached capacity and are no longer selling tickets for the dinner, but please consider donating to the Malki-SCM Children's Center fund! Thank you!***
This event is to raise funds for the ongoing operation of the Malki/Salaam Children's Center. This center provides mental health care to children and their families affected by the violence in Syria. It is located in Amman Jordan. During our medical missions to Jordan, our groups spend a day there working with the children in activities to help them remember how to be children again. What these children have gone through is beyond description in many cases and nothing anyone, young or old, should have to experience. They need help, and the Malki/Salaam Children's Center is often the only place they can get it. We need to keep the doors open.
Through a very generous donation that has paid for the first year of operation, the center found a location, purchased materials and supplies, and hired staff. It is up to us to keep the center open beyond the first year. The children need this service very badly.
Join us for an evening of good traditional Syrian food, music, a fantastic view of Lake Union and Mount Rainier, presentations about the center and Salaam Cultural Museum (www.salaamculturalmuseum.org) and an auction. We will also have free valet parking- if you have been to our office, you already know that sometimes finding parking can be difficult, but you won't have to worry about for this event!
If you are unable to attend but would like to contribute, there is a "ticket" option to just donate and not attend. Everything helps and is greatly appreciated! All proceeds and donations will go directly to the Malki-SCM Children's Center operating fund.
