Get Your Tickets for PfP’s Annual Dinner Fundraiser!

Playgrounds for Palestine will hold it’s annual fundraiser dinner on March 29th, 2014,   at UPenn’s Hall of Flags in Philadelphia, PA.

We are very excited to share another evening of community with our supporters, where we will show you photos from our latest builds in Palestine.  

Our feature performer is Farah Siraj, a Jordanian virtuoso whose career spans three continents.  She has performed at some of the world’s most prestigious platforms, including the United Nations, Nobel Prize Hall, the World Economic Forum, MTV, Coke Studio,  Good Morning Live, MBC TV, and the Antena de Oro Awards of Spain.

 

The evening will also feature Afro-Brazilian dance troupe Eh Capoiera.

Capoeira  is a Brazilian martial art developed by enslaved people by descendants of Africa and Natives of Brazil.  It combines elements of music and dance and creativity; and is identified by its quick and complex moves; kicks, flips and takedowns, using  power,  flexibility, agility,  and leverage for leg sweeps.

Of course, we will also have our usual excellent dinner, awards, raffle, and silent auction  Families, kids, students, seniors, all welcome.  There’s something for everyone.

Play, while it cannot change the external realities of children’s lives, can be a vehicle for children to explore and enjoy their differences and similarities and to create, even for a brief time, a more just world where everyone is an equal and valued participant.
