Arabian Nights II

November 2, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 11:59 pm


Dear Friend,

 I’m pleased to announce that Tunis Shriners will be holding Arabian Nights II this fall on Friday, November 2nd, 2018.  Two years ago the first event was sold-out and a great success where 250 people took part. This year, we will once again have a sold-out crowd of friends enjoying themselves for a purpose. 

You may not be aware of the origins of the Shriners, but their ties to the Arabian theme goes back almost 150 years. They were started in 1870 and were originally called the Ancient Arabic Order of the Nobles of the Mystic Shrine.  They have always been about fun, fellowship and helping those in need. The Nobles of Tunis Shriners are involved in fraternal and family oriented activities, community involvement, parades as well as supporting local projects, organizations and charities.  In the past, Tunis Shriners has supported local charities such as Madi’s Gala, Loaves and Fishes, Ottawa Firefighters Memorial, youth leadership groups like Cadets, DeMolay and Rainbow, as well as its own philanthropy, Shriners Hospitals for Children. Proceeds from this event will go to support Tunis Shriners activities.

Just like the Shriners are an organization that has fun and fellowship with a purpose to help those in need, so too will this event raise funds that will be gratefully received and faithfully applied. It was in this spirit that the first Arabian Nights event was held 2 years ago.  At that time, over $20,000 was raised and this year we are working hard to surpass that amount.

We will once again be holding the event at El Mazaj Restaurant at 5307 Canotek Road.  The Social will start at 6:00 pm followed by a sumptuous banquet at 7:00 pm. There will be entertainment through the evening. Tickets are only $45 per person and can be obtained by contacting Julie Hawkins at Juliee_73@sympatico.ca or Denise Wanna at 613-868-3773 or DeniseWanna@gmail.com.   Get your tickets early before it is once again sold out!

Sponsorship opportunities are also available, and we are calling on you to sponsor this great event. If you were at the first event, you will know how much fun it was.
