FACEBOOK EVENT: Breaking Fast with APO



Join us for our annual Iftar Dinner on June 15th, 2017 at 49 McCaul Street (OCAD University). Purchase your tickets on Eventbrite to secure your spot.

Registration will begin at 7PM.

In previous years, APO has participated in helping causes and fundraising for orphanages in Afghanistan during the month of Ramadan. This year we would like to change things a little and give the gift of Eidi to Afghan and Muslim children that are in Ontario.

Do you remember how much you looked forward to your Eidi? And what if your parents had relocated as refugees to a new country and didn’t have any Eidi to give you? There are hundreds of Afghan and Muslim families in the same situation this Ramadan. We are collaborating with several charities that will help us find these children and deliver the toys to them this Eid.

We would like for all our guests to bring one toy with them to our Iftar Dinner. The toy must be unwrapped, brand new and not promote violence or have offensive writing. How much you spend on the toy is completely your decision.

We will start wrapping the presents together as a community before we break our fast.

At sunset we will feast on an assortment of delicious food that will be catered.

We have a designated prayer room in the facility. We will be providing prayer mats. You are encouraged to bring a prayer mat with you.

If you are unable to make it to the event, we will have designated toy drop off locations available to you, so that you can still contribute to this wonderful gift of Eidi. If you have any questions please email us at our info@afghanprofessionals.ca or reach out to our VP of Social Development, Serena Arman.

*Please RSVP and purchase your tickets online at Eventbrite.
*Tickets are only $15.
