At this event, during the time of Ramadan, we will gather as people of diverse backgrounds, with the purpose of building bridges and cultivating mutual understanding.
As you may know, Ramadan is the holiest of the 12 months in Islam during which Muslims fast. Fasting starts at dawn and ends at sunset. During this time, Muslims refrain from eating, drinking (including water) and intimacy. The fast is broken at sunset with a dinner called "iftar" where family, friends and neighbors gather. The Raindrop community has been sharing iftar dinners with many other communities in our city for the last several years.

7.30 pm Arrival, Mingle and Live Sufi Music
7.45 pm Welcome by Raindrop
