Post Gala

Our inaugural gala and speaker event went great!

We are now 6 days past our inaugural Partnership Gala and World Conflict Speaker Series.  The event was a huge success!  We got tons of positive feedback from those who attended and everyone loved our 5 Iraqi guests!  There are lots of things that we want to carry forward to next year’s Gala and Speaker Series, but we are also listening to your critiques about what to change.  If you attended and have feedback that I have not yet heard, please feel free to email me.  The Fundraising aspect of the evening also went incredibly well.  We managed to raise just under 7 thousand dollars (including a very generous donation of 3,000,000 Iraqi Dinar from an american family, roughly 2560 dollars) as well as 185 dollars in monthly support.  This took a huge bite out of our overall remaining need of $20,500 and our remaining monthly need of $1900/ month.  WE’RE GETTING SO CLOSE!!!
