About this event
This evening is a cultural, educational, invigorating, and culinary journey led by Tigist Reda, master chef and a pillar in our Chicago community since 2007.
Join us for a sit-down 3-course dinner that will feature a cocktail and mingling hour and a riveting evening filled with creating awareness on how to inspire hope, and empowerment, and women facing heinous crimes in this region. Live music, the ceremonious and traditional Ethiopian coffee experience, and vendors showcasing the beauty of Ethiopian artifacts will add a memorable event. There will be a silent auction of cultural items.
The evening will also feature live music and a keynote from 2019 CNN Hero Freweini Mebrahatu. CNN Heroes is a year-long initiative that honors everyday people for their selfless, creative efforts to help others. Ms. Mebrahatu has impacted the lives of millions of women and girls in Tigray, Afar and other parts of Ethiopia, through the introduction of a revolutionary line of feminine care products to the region. Following a riveting panel highlighting experiences from the ongoing crisis in Tigray, a silent auction of Ethiopian artifacts and collectibles will also take place, with all proceeds supporting HPN4Tigray.
