On October 20th, we had our annual dinner to raise awareness and funds about refugees in the Horn of Africa. The turn out was great, and the event started off with a wonderful keynote from Eskinder Negash on the history of refugees and the outlook we have. The night continued with amazing food from our friends at Holy Land, and followed by a great panel discussion featuring Mohamed Idris, Eskinder Negash, and Sabrina Aman. We then continued with our lifesaver award ceremony to recognize some outstanding individuals from our community who have contributed significantly to help people in the Horn of Africa region. We then concluded the night with a fundraiser in which our audience helped us to raise over $20,000!
