    7:00PM - Entertainment begins

    Seating is first come first serve.

    We strongly urge you to purchase tickets as a donation even if you can not attend, the fund will be going to a needy Iranian family who has fallen on hard times living in shelters.

    One of the main reasons for doing this aside from helping Iranian families is that we wanted to raise awareness that Iranian families go to shelter all the time and no one knows about it. Once people are aware they are more likely to donate to shelters directly so they can take in more Iranian families in need. Right now because no Iranian businesses or people donate to the shelter their priority is Hispanic, American or other minorities. This way when we get the Iranian community involved so we can change that.
