    Dinner & Programming from 6pm-8pm. Dancing from 8pm-10pm. Tickets only $5! Contact pronetaction@gmail.com for tickets or more information.

    Now more than ever – in the midst of increasing anti-immigrant sentiment – we need the help of everyone, especially those willing to be sustaining donors, to continue to build towards a society and community that is welcoming to all our brothers and sisters. Hope to see you there!”
