Sunday, March 17
Nile Restaurant, Madison
5:30 pm, dinner at 6:15 pm
March 16, 2013 will mark the tenth anniversary of the killing of Rachel Corrie in Rafah in the Gaza Strip.
As we have for the last few years, MRSCP will mark this occasion with our annual dinner benefit, once again at the Nile Restaurant on Odana Road. Funds raised by the dinner will go toward the completion of our third water filtration system for Rafah schools, which will be dedicated to Rachel.
The program which follows will feature a recorded video message from Craig and Cindy Corrie and a report on what we saw and learned in our recent delegation to Gaza.
The menu will include hummus, felafel, spinach pie, cheese pie, foule, lentil soup with spinach, bread and dessert. Ticket prices are $25 per person at the door, or $22.50 if paid in advance by Tuesday, March 12. We are doing our best to keep the dinner cost as affordable as we can; we hope that those who can afford more will consider donating to the water filter project.
If you would like to attend, please RSVP to Donna Wallbaum at email@example.com or 235-7870 with the number in your party by Thursday, March 14. She will give you instructions as to paying in advance or at the door.
Space is limited, so we urge you to get your reservations in as soon as you can.
As always, thanks for your support and we look forward to seeing you on March 17.
