On Friday March 17, 2017 from 3:00PM to 5:30PM the Iranian community will once again partner with The Midnight Mission to host a special celebration of Nowruz for over 2,000 homeless men, women, and children.
Nowruz at The Midnight Mission is a one-of-a-kind special event for the Iranian New Year. On this day streets surrounding The Midnight Mission will be closed and dressed with flags and banners to create a festive atmosphere. Dinner tables will be setup to serve a traditional Nowruz meal and delicacies.
On a special stage setup for this event, notable Iranian-American performers and dance ensembles will present traditional Iranian Music and Dance. Dignitaries and event sponsors will be present to lend their support.
Nowruz at The Midnight Mission is an opportunity to not only showcase the Iranian culture through traditional song and dance but to show how Iranian Americans are giving back to Los Angeles through caring for the less fortunate. At last year’s event, the Iranian-American community raised more than $70,000 in donations to provide food, clothing and hygiene products to more than 1,500 homeless people.
Please make a generous donation to Nowruz at the Midnight Mission and become part of the volunteer team serving Persian-style food and distributing gifts of clothing (Eydi) to homeless and hungry individuals and families. If you are a business owner please consider the many benefits of becoming a Corporate Sponsor.
Nowruz at the Midnight Mission is an event that both shares the beautiful Iranian cultural traditions with the community at large and at the same time highlights the philanthropy of the Los Angeles Iranian community. Your generous contribution also provides homeless men, women, and children with life’s most basic needs: food, shelter and health.
