LANSING, Mich. — Mayor Virg Bernero (Lansing) and Mayor Mark Meadows (East Lansing) are proud to announce that the 10th Anniversary of the Mayors’ Ramadan Unity Dinner will be held on Friday, Oct. 14 from 6-9 p.m. The annual dinner was established to celebrate diversity in the mid-Michigan region and to raise awareness about how together we can feed those experiencing hunger.
The theme of this year’s Ramadan dinner is “United in Hope – Against Hunger!” Ramadan is not only a religious observation for mid-Michigan Muslims, but also a calling to feed those in need, which is a focus of the dinner. Over the past nine years, a half-million meals have been provided to area residents in need thanks to the generous support of Ramadan Unity Dinner attendees. Proceeds from the 2016 dinner will be directed toward an essay scholarship and to the Greater Lansing Food Bank.
Tickets are $15 per student, $25 per individual and $80 per family of four. Additional information can be found at lansingmi.gov/ramadanunitydinner
