I work for the American Refugee Committee in Chicago, and this year we're holding a fundraising luncheon in Chicago in support of the refugee camps we run in Darfur and other places around the world. Speakers will include ARC's country director from Sudan and John Prendergast, a Senior Adviser on Africa at the International Crisis Group in DC who's traveled to the Congo with Angelina Jolie. Barack Obama is an honorary co-sponsor and may show up as well. The luncheon is being held November 3rd at the Hilton Chicago, and tickets are $150 each (with at least 90% of that going directly to refugee support). If you're interested in learning more about what's going on in Darfur and supporting refugee camps there, please email me and I'll get you an invitation.
Thanks for your support!
