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.
