Mayors Andy Schor and Mark Meadows will be hosting the 12th Annual Mayors' Ramadan Unity Dinner - "Zero Tolerance for Hunger" on Friday, June 29, 2018 from 6:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m., at the Lansing Center.
The mission of the Ramadan Unity Dinner is to raise money for the Greater Lansing Food Bank, to bring awareness to the plight of those who go hungry, and to promote a better understanding of how we can impart hope and help feed those in our community who experience hunger. For the past eleven years, this event has embraced all community members — regardless of faith — so they can unite and work together toward a common goal.
Since its inception, the Mayors’ Ramadan Unity Dinner has grown to reach an audience of more than 400 people annually and has contributed over $90,000 to our local food bank. An exciting evening is being planned with great authentic Middle Eastern cuisine and an informative program. The celebration will be funded through sponsorships and ticket sales ($15 per student, $25 per individual, $80 per family of four). Sponsors will be recognized for their commitment to diversity and the fight against hunger. All proceeds of the event will be directed to the Greater Lansing Food Bank.
