Thank you for attending our 26th Annual CommUnity Dinner

The evening of November 17, 2018 was special to CIOGC as we celebrated our 26th Annual CommUnity Dinner. Our emcee, Mariam Sobh, was insightful and witty and kept us schedule throughout the evening. The program provided us the opportunity to showcase what we are doing for our member organizations and for the Muslim community.  The evening also offered us the opportunity to acknowledge the accomplishments of our awardees and to experience the inspiring speech of Abdul El-Sayed.

It was gratifying to see so many of our community members coming out on a cold snowy evening to join the celebration of CIOGC’s 26th Anniversary Dinner. We hope you found Saturday evening to be informative, inspirational, and entertaining. Our dinner committee worked very hard to make it a special evening for all of us. To Gazala Rahman and her dinner committee members, we offer a special thanks for all your hard work.

Finally, to our awardees, invited dignitaries, community members, and friends, we offer our gratitude and sincere appreciation for you sharing this important evening with us. Your presence made this a special annual dinner. We also appreciate your continued support of CIOGC, and we pray that Allah will guide us to bigger and greater achievements for the coming year. Inshallah, we hope to see you next November.

CIOGC Executive Director
