Get Your Tickets for PfP’s Annual Dinner Fundraiser!

Playgrounds for Palestine will hold it’s annual fundraiser dinner on March 29th, 2014,   at UPenn’s Hall of Flags in Philadelphia, PA.

We are very excited to share another evening of community with our supporters, where we will show you photos from our latest builds in Palestine.  

Our feature performer is Farah Siraj, a Jordanian virtuoso whose career spans three continents.  She has performed at some of the world’s most prestigious platforms, including the United Nations, Nobel Prize Hall, the World Economic Forum, MTV, Coke Studio,  Good Morning Live, MBC TV, and the Antena de Oro Awards of Spain.

 

The evening will also feature Afro-Brazilian dance troupe Eh Capoiera.

Capoeira  is a Brazilian martial art developed by enslaved people by descendants of Africa and Natives of Brazil.  It combines elements of music and dance and creativity; and is identified by its quick and complex moves; kicks, flips and takedowns, using  power,  flexibility, agility,  and leverage for leg sweeps.

Of course, we will also have our usual excellent dinner, awards, raffle, and silent auction  Families, kids, students, seniors, all welcome.  There’s something for everyone.

“After the ‘Cast lead’ attack on Gaza, PfP shared a video of the kids finally able to go outside where there still stood a (PfP) playground.  It still brings tears to think about the joy of those kids swarming the playground…  It really brought home the great work PfP does. “
