Potluck dinner – August 28th, 2021

دعوت از همه دوستان

PACS is pleased to invite you for a potluck dinner, and wonderful live Persian music to celebrate having our community back together after a long period of time due to the pandemic. During this potluck, there will also be fundraising for some of the Iranian college students who need our support in these dire times in order to afford the very basics of life.  Due to the rise of the delta variant, we will stay cautious and will re-adjust the event as needed.

We look forward to seeing all of you and spending a fun and enjoyable evening together.
