Sunrise Students Standing with Children of the World

In imploring the spirit of love and giving Prophet Muhammad (SAW) said:

إنَّ المؤمِنَ للمُؤمنِ كَالبُـنيان يشـِدُّ بَعْضُه بَعضـا

Truly The Faithful Are To One Another Like Components Of A Building—Each Part Supports The Other.
Muslim and Bukhari

Please support our students in helping children in need. The students are very excited about this event. They will be practicing what they have been learning in our Islamic school. They will be raising funds to provide free medical care to children in need along with raising funds to help build a cancer hospital in Gaza. We will be holding an event on May 2, 2015. All funds raised will be donated to The Palestine Children’s Relief Fund. The PCRF is a non-political, non-profit organization dedicated to healing the wounds of war, occupation and poverty for children in the Middle East, regardless of their nationality, religion, race or gender.

How can you be a part of this great event and how can you support the students of Sunrise Academy? You can earn double the reward! Click here to sign up, then bring yourselves and family to the fundraising event with a platter of food. Have dinner with us and enjoy a multicultural buffet (each plate sold for $5). The students are also exploring their options of how to increase the funds, so be ready to be amused, be proud and have lots of fun!!!

When: Saturday, May 2, 2015 from 5 PM to 8 PM
