Commemorating the end of the Hajj (pilgrimage) and grounded in the roots of Abrahamic sacrifice, Eid al-Adha is a true celebration. The idea that societal change requires great sacrifice and personal commitment is one that is not limited to Islamic teachings, and this evening of humor, culture, and activism is accessible to all.
For its 25th Annual Eid Banquet, The MSA will donate portion of the proceeds from ticket sales to Wildlife Conservation Network, Alliance for the Great Lakes, and the Coral Reef Alliance.
Al Bawadi Grill, a premier Palestinian restaurant, will cater the Eid banquet. Both Yasmin Mogahed, an acclaimed author and speaker, and the spoken word artist Jacinda Bullie will present.
Tickets are $8. Please purchase tickets prior to the event here.
A limited number of tickets will be available at the door.
