Everyone is invited to a special evening of food, music and hope for the the future of our Syrian friends at "Soup for Syria" fundraiser at Grace Church on Sunday, April 17 starting at 4:30. Speakers will include Professor David Mednicoff, UMass Director of Middle Eastern Studies;
Michael Kane from Valley Syrian Relief; and Michel Moushabeck, musician and publisher of the beautiful, full-color cookbook Soup for Syria, which will be on sale during the event. Please come to witness the life-saving work being done by the Syrian American Medical Society (SAMS), the beneficiary of funds collected during the event, documented in the short film that will be shown. Sit back and listen to beautiful Syrian instrumental music. If you're a cook or just appreciate great photographs, be sure to buy a copy of the cookbook - all proceeds go to Syrian aid.
Following the program, a selection of soups from the cookbook will be served in the Parish Hall. This event is free of charge and open to the public - invite your friends and neighbors!
