Gala Dinner Fundraiser, for Lexington Refugee Assistance ProgramSunday October 14, 2018
5:00 PM until 7:00 PM
There will be a Gala Dinner Fundraiser for the Lexington Refugee Assistance Program (LexRAP).
Sunday October 14th 5:00 to 7:00pm, hosted at Temple Isaiah at 55 Lincoln St. in Lexington.
The refugee families involved with LexRAP, along with LexRAP volunteers and led by Bruce Lynn, who is the chef for Lex Eat Together, will be cooking and serving delicious authentic Middle Eastern dishes. This Dinner Fundraiser is open to the public; we hope that folks from Lexington, Concord, Bedford, Arlington, Carlisle, Waltham, and other places will come and meet their refugee neighbors – some of whom have recently become U.S citizens! We are celebrating our diversity as a community. This dinner was the families’ idea to celebrate and say thank you to the communities that have embraced them.
