Galen Burghardt, chair of the Seraj Board's Development Committee, ended the evening with a live auction and a request to Fund the Need.
Lucky winners of the live auction will soon enjoy:
-8 Maine lobsters delivered to the their home
-An authentic Palestinian Dinner for a Chicago gathering
We see the NEED.
Can we all step up and FUND these opportunities?
Attendees where given the opportunity to choose how to support Seraj programs:
Palestinian Storytelling Center (project in process)
BJ Wagner Fellows Program, which provides scholarships for our college-age volunteers
Books to replenish & enhance our library collections
Finally, Galen challenged all in attendance to consider a monthly donation to Seraj. Our website makes it easy. Just designate the amount and your credit card will be charged each month. And budgeting and planning will be enhanced for Seraj.
