During this year of COVID-19, so many things have changed or been put on hold. While other things stop, the life changing work of supporting the families and caring for the girls in Ethiopia still goes on by the wonderful staff at Addis Jemari. The annual Night of New Beginnings is not just a time to raise needed funds to make this work happen, but it is also a time of laughter and encouragement as we share with our community the work from the past year and how instrumental our champions have been in making this happen. 

This year, our Night of New Beginnings will be a modified event that will take place at an outdoor location with several 2-hour time slots from October 22-October 24.  Each time slot will have a max of 25 attendees or less to allow for social distancing and safety precautions. Each time slot will take place at the beautiful back porch of the Bedford Clubhouse, which will be cleaned thoroughly between and during each group. Delicious food, cocktails and Ethiopian coffee will be served in a safe manner.  Each time slot will have time to hang out, participate in the silent auction (which will also be digital so you can continue bidding after you leave), and hear the updates on the work of AJ. 

Overall, we think this will be a meaningful time to celebrate our champions and to introduce new friends to Addis Jemari. Join us for what will be a meaningful, safefun and most of all impactful event for all! 

We hope you can join us and bring a friend or two so we can fill all the time slots and continue to change lives in Ethiopia.
