8TH ANNUAL GALA ORGANIZED BY (MCN)

8TH ANNUAL GALA ORGANIZED BY (MCN)

The Interfaith Institute of the Islamic Center of Long Island participated in the 8th Annual Gala organized by The Muslim Community Network (MCN). The MCN has been building bridges of understanding amongst NYC’s diverse communities, empowering emerging leaders to become active members of society, and driving deeper community engagement through enriching civic education programs. The Muslim Community Network is committed to shaping the public narrative about what it means to be Muslim in America through civic education and leadership development.

MCN celebrated 15 Years: Building Our Dream on April 19, 2018 at the New York Hilton in Midtown. There were 300 plus attendees at the gala. They honored Ms. Ruia Ahmadzada, Rabbi Sharon Kleinbaum and Ali Baba Turkish Cuisine for their long standing support of all communities around NYC. Their keynote speaker was Ms. Sabeeha Rehman, author of Threading My Prayer Rug, in which she shares her experiences as a Muslim American. Ms. Rowaida Abdelaziz, journalist at HuffPost was the MC for the evening. There was a delightful musical performance by Yacouba Sissoko. Thanks to their supporters, family and friends, MCN was able to raise $120,000.
