We hope you’ll join us on the morning of Saturday, October 2, 2021 for our annual fundraising event.
Our fall benefit event this year will be a hybrid event: an in-person brunch at the Army & Navy Club in Arlington, VA as well as a Zoom program so that our friends from around the country–and world–can join us! We will have an exciting array of performers and speakers, including:
-the Ambassador of Egypt to the United States, Ambassador Zahran
-Egyptian actress and Honorary UNFPA Ambassador, Amina Khalil
-Egyptian-American jazz singer Maggie Yacoub
-Oud player Mohamed Abozekry
We will also have a silent auction full of Egyptian handicrafts and more. We hope you will be able to join us either in person or virtually!
The schedule for the in-person event will be as follows:
-11 a.m. to 12 noon: Silent auction and cocktails
-12 noon to 1 p.m.: Program (also available online)
-1 to 2:30 p.m.: Brunch
The price of your ticket will support HANDS’ work with vulnerable Egyptian communities, providing opportunities for children there to continue their education and work towards fulfilling careers.
A better future for these kids happens through empowering their parents: providing microloans, vocational training, and entrepreneurship mentoring. As parents are able to start a small business or find meaningful employment, their children can remain in school, not needing to find work to support their struggling family. We hope you’ll join us in providing a brighter future for the children of Egypt–and their parents.
