Our annual fundraiser was held at Jubilee Community in December 2015.  It was a beautiful night with much love and support from our fabulous and caring Asheville community.

We were joined by dozens of people, renowned percussionist River Guergerian and Free Planet Radio, as well as other local musicians, for an evening of compassion and information, a short film presentation and discussion about the current Syrian refugee crisis and the work of HADAYA - spreading joy, one toy at a time, to refugee children worldwide. Middle Eastern treats were served - including Jennifer’s famous Habibi Baklava. We lit candles in solidarity with the millions of refugees who remain displaced. 

Tickets funds and donations from this evening went towards providing toys, books and art supplies for another ‘joy delivery’ to approx. 120 children in an orphanage in southern Turkey.
