So as some of you may or may not know we are one of the co-sponsors of Fast-a-Thon brought to you by MSA. I’m forwarding all of the information and the links to where you can pledge. A brief summary of the event is people can pledge to fast next Tuesday from sunup to sundown. Benefits from pledging to fast go to the Cville food bank. There is also a smorgasbord of a feast for those who fast on that same day. I hope you will take advantage of this opportunity.

Fast to Feed Another. This is an event in which non-Muslims have the opportunity to fast for 1 day from sunrise to sunset – just like Muslims in Ramadan. Not only is this a great opportunity to empathize with the poor, it is also a great cause to help out our Charlottesville community! There will be a FREE DINNER from ARIANA GRILL KABOB HOUSE for all pledged participants to break their fast together! Please Bring Non-Perishable Food Items – all benefits go to the: Charlottesville’s Emergency Food Bank! So get together with friends and make the pledge to fast!
JOIN US TO BREAK THE FAST TUESDAY MARCH 22 AT 7:30PM IN THE STUDENT ACTIVITIES BUILDING
