Charity Bazaar - $2,000 raised

On Monday, Feb. 13 SPJP held a fundraiser and charity bazaar to raise money for children’s education in Palestine. The event was held in Newcomb Lounge to sell traditional scarves, jewelry, embroidery, and other cultural items. Two thousand dollars were raised by the end of the evening; enough to support three children in Palestine through a year of school. The bazaar included a henna station, a dabke (step dance) workshop, and featured pictures drawn by Palestinian children from Gaza. The theme of the evening was “Make the Children of Palestine Your Valentine.”
