Description

Hamden Welcomes!

Members in the Hamden community are holding an event at Spring Glen Church to celebrate a new initiative with IRIS,-- Integrated Refugee and Immigrations Services based in New Haven. This event will be in collaboration with the New Colony Development Corporation (NCDC) from Hamden. The event is a fundraiser for IRIS and has a goal to introduce IRIS clients to the Hamden community. The Hamden Welcomes event includes participation by members of the Hamden Board of Education, Arts and Culture, the Faith Community, Workforce Community and many other important groups. Most of all, we will celebrate the diversity of culture and begin a dialogue among the many partners in Hamden on how to welcome people from around the world.

The Hamden Welcomes event will be from 6-9 P.M. and will include hors d'oeuvres from Spice Catering Group in Durham CT and a main meal prepared by refugee chefs from New Haven. Tickets are priced at a suggested donation of $15 per ticket and sponsorship opportunities are available. The snow date will be Thursday January 11th, 2018 from 6-9 pm.
