International Women’s Day Celebration at Chicago:  Documentary Film Showing “Playing House”


I would like to extend a sincere thank you for attending BTF’s 2014 International Women’s Day Celebration & Fundraising event last week.  The event was a great success with both Turkish Americans and Friends of Türkiye attending  a powerful documentary film “Playing House” by Bingol Elmas and enjoying delicious Turkish food.

Donation proceeds from the event will be supporting BTF’s Light the Path Scholarships4Girls from Çağdaş Yaşamı Destekleme Derneği – CYDD.  Together, we have raised over $3,000 and will be able to provide 5 scholarships to young girls from rural parts of Türkiye .

A special THANK YOU goes to  TACA Turkish American Cultural Alliance, Chicago Turkish Forum, Turan Travel and Cacciatore Insurance.

Bridge to Türkiye Fund (BTF) was established in 2003 by community minded Turkish Americans (Turks4Good) driven to make a difference, to improve life and to cultivate social change for the common good. Our circle of compassion promotes respect and fellowship for humankind in the communities we serve. Turks4Good commitment to these ideals stems from our basic desire to give back to our native land for the many opportunities we have gained from her. We invite you to also contribute to the welfare of less fortunate children in Turkey.
