SOFRA DAYMA — a special evening in support of Newcomer Kitchen


Thursday, Dec. 22 | Gladstone Hotel

The Syrian women of Newcomer Kitchen invite you to celebrate their remarkable accomplishments of this extraordinary year.

In only a few short months, Newcomer Kitchen has invited over 55 Syrian newcomer women to collaborate with local restaurants to create transformative social and economic opportunities. Despite growing momentum and demand, the absence of dedicated funding keeps the future of the project precariously uncertain.

To truly realize the profound impact of this idea — a model that can help unlock the potential of any community, in any kitchen, in any city — Newcomer Kitchen needs the support of courageous and visionary people like you.

Please join us at Sofra Dayma, on Thursday, December 22, at the beautiful Gladstone Hotel for a truly unforgettable dining experience — a sumptuous banquet of traditional Syrian cuisine — with some very special guests and a unique auction of private, in-home catered dinners prepared by some of our most talented cooks.
