CAC 2019 Gala Dinner
Dear Friends of CAC,
CAC gala was an event of success and celebration of our heritage and culture.
With 230 CAC supporters in attendance, at the Hyatt Regency Boston Harbor, Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib captured us with her speech about her identity, upbringing, district, Palestinian Sitti (Grandmother) and Family.
Gala Master of Ceremonies, law professor and comedian Amer Zahr told us about being an Arab- American in a powerful and funny way. He guided our event, giving everyone a chance to contribute to and support CAC's mission because of his great talent.We celebrated CAC's achievements and our Arab-American community's commitment in highlighting Arab culture in Boston and the US. It was an evening of fellowship, food, and fun.
We are happy to announce that, as a result of silent and live auctions, and active fundraising, contributions and pledges, the gala fundraising reached its goal and was very successful.
We would like to extend a warm thank you to our amazing donors, sponsors, supporters, and volunteers.
The proceeds will go a long way towards helping us achieve our ambitious goals for 2020, and to focus on programs and outreach to expand CAC’s presence in the community.
For those who did not get the chance to attend or donate,
you can still support CAC by making a tax deductible donation Here
