EID CARNIVAL & RAFFLE - SLIDE SHOW LINK INCLUDED!!!
The Jamaat's annual Eid Carnival took place on the day of Eid at the Center. The carnival was a fun filled event for all ages which included Jumping Castles for the kids, to burn energy, games, a snake/reptile exhibit, pony rides, roasted corn, bazaar, coffee shop, smoothies, paan store, and the much loved delicious chana bateta and samosas.
This year there was also a special booth on the refugee support hosted by Fayaz Jaffer and family to educate us on how we can help refugees.
Part of the Eid carnival included a "raffle" where the kids of the Jamaat sold tickets during the Holy month and all the proceeds benefit the Jamaat. There were some very exciting prizes that were donated by the Jamaat members which added incredible excitement on the day of Eid especially when the raffle was drawn. It was definitely an "Eid to Remember" in Minnesota. A record number of 8,226 tickets were sold leading up to the drawing and alhumdulillah the goal of ticket sales was achieved. A huge THANKS to all the kids who worked hard to sell the tickets and also to the members of the community who purchased these tickets.
