“Welcome Neighbor STL” Syrian Dinner

Saturday, February 29, 2020, 6-8pm

You are invited to a Welcome Neighbor STL Supper Club dinner to support refugee families recently settled in our area. Enjoy food, conversation, and catching up with friends – old and new. From cultural exchange to just plain fun, look forward to a great evening.

These meals present an opportunity for immigrant families to share knowledge and skills unique to them. It is also an opportunity for us to get a glimpse into their culture. These fundraising efforts can set them on a path of greater independence and confidence in their lives here in in the USA.

When you attend a Welcome Neighbor STL Supper Club, your meal will be prepared by immigrant neighbors who will share their culture and cooking skills by providing a table full of traditional food from their country of origin.

The suggested donation for the meal is $25.00, and reservations can be made HERE
