Middle Eastern Fundraising Dinner Benefiting Olympia Arab Festival


Join the Rachel Corrie Foundation for a lively and culturally rich evening featuring a delicious Middle Eastern dinner, cash bar, music, and guest entertainment. There will also be opportunity to shop for amazing gifts including exclusive hand-crafted Palestinian embroidery, delicious Canaan Fair Trade products, and more. All proceeds from this event will directly benefit Shuruq IV: Olympia Arab Festival, held Saturday, October 6, 2018 from 11 am-5 pm at The Olympia Center. For this year's Arab Festival to be accessible to all and to have the greatest impact, there will be no admission fee. Expenses for the venue, performers, promotion, and staff support are significant. We must have financial help from individual, business, and organization cosponsors to make this possible, and time is short. We simply can't make this happen without help from our community members, businesses, and organizations. Can't make it to the dinner but would still like to contribute? Co-Sponsorship Opportunities are available. Visit our online co-sponsorship page to contribute. Arab Festival is a biennial project of the Rachel Corrie Foundation for Peace and Justice that invites the Olympia community to join in celebration of Arabic culture and to experience the food, traditions, lifestyles, and peoples of the Arab World in a peaceful, joyous and authentic manner. We strive for lasting appreciation and respect for our own and other cultures, and for the ability to understand and accept our differences so that we may acknowledge our similarities and enrich each other's lives.
