Ticket Details

We hope you’ll join us on the morning of Saturday, October 2, 2021 for our annual fundraising event.

Our fall benefit event this year will be a hybrid event: an in-person brunch at the Army & Navy Country Club in Arlington, VA as well as a Zoom program so that our friends from around the country–and world–can join us!

We will have an exciting array of performers and speakers, including:

  • the Ambassador of Egypt to the United States, Ambassador Zahran
  • Egyptian actress and Honorary Ambassador, Amina Khalil
  • Egyptian-American jazz singer Maggie Yacoub
  • Oud player Mohamed Abozekry

We will also have a silent auction full of Egyptian handicrafts and more. We hope you will be able to join us either in person or virtually!

Ambassador Zahran, Maggie Yacoub (participating in-person)

Amina Khalil, Mohamed Abozekry (participating virtually)

The in-person event will include the following:

11:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m.: silent auction and cocktails

12:00-1:00 p.m. EDT: program

1:00-2:30 pm. EDT: brunch

The price of your ticket will support HANDS’ work with vulnerable Egyptian communities, providing opportunities for children there to continue their education and work towards fulfilling careers.

A better future for these kids happens through empowering their parents: providing microloans, vocational training, and entrepreneurship mentoring. As parents are able to start a small business or find meaningful employment, their children can remain in school, not needing to find work to support their struggling family. We hope you’ll join us in providing a brighter future for the children of Egypt–and their parents.

HANDS is committed to keeping our fall benefit event guests safe from COVID-19. Read more here about what we are doing to protect you.
