Event description

Description

Join us on November 19th for an interfaith fundraising event to help our neighbors and friends open the Hampshire Mosque.

You may purchase tickets for the International Feast portion of the event at this page; space is limited and tickets may not be available at the door, so reserve your place now!

Tickets are available on a sliding scale, and we encourage you to give generously.

Our gala includes a silent auction, interfaith prayers, information about the building project, a capella performances, and a culminating International Feast presented by members of the mosque.

About the fundraising effort:

The Hampshire Mosque in Hadley is almost complete!

Hadley is soon to be home to a new mosque, the first in the Five College area. It is located right on Rt. 9, near University Drive, easily accessed by PVTA.

The members of Hampshire Mosque have been meeting in rented spaces and have worked hard over the last two years and spent $1.5 million to purchase their own property and build a permanent place of worship.

One major hurdle remains to opening their doors to the community: repaving the parking lot for $85,000. About half of the funds have already been raised, and we aim to raise the remaining $45,000 through our GoFundMe page, and our November 19th fundraising event at Wesley United Methodist Church in Hadley.
