43rd Annual Palestine Day Cultural Festival

Dear Donors,

On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Palestinian American Coalition of San Francisco, (PAC-SF), in conjunction with the American Federation of Ramallah Human Service Network Medical Mission (AFRHSN), It is with great honor to extend this invitation to our 43rd Annual Palestine Day Cultural Festival, which will be held at the Foster City, Leo J. Ryan, 540 Shell Blvd., on Saturday, September 17, 2022 from 10AM – 9PM.

Our mission is to develop and implement Palestinian cultural community programs to preserve traditions for our younger generations and to strengthen ties among our Palestinian American Community, also to help our fellow Americans understand our culture and heritage. Our goal, with the AFRHSN Medical Mission is to raise funds to help our sisters and brothers in Palestine who are still suffering from the pandemic and from so much more.

Palestine Cultural Day Festival in 2019 was very successful event, with the support and contribution of our community businesses and affiliates we were able to draw over 10,000 people to our festival. And after two years of unprecedented pandemic era, we are eager to host our Palestine Cultural Day celebration on September 17th in person, which includes various activities, from Palestinian foods to folkloric dance and music, as well as vendor booths selling Palestinian artifacts, embroideries, spices and many other Palestinian products.   

We are writing to ask for your partnership, once again, with your support and contribution will be able to achieve our goal as we work on two fronts.
