9 August 2015 – Over two-thousand people at the Assyrian Aid Society of America Chicago Chapter event with singer Ramsen Sheeno and guest singer Mokhles Yousef. The annual fundraising picnic is created to raise more awareness about the organization and the good work it does supporting its mission. Proceeds of $7,000 will aid our brethren in Iraq. A huge thank you to our sponsors this year: Solex College, Ashtar Food and Market Imported Foods, Detroit Kabob, Brunette Salon & Spa, Re-vive Skin Solutions, Oakton Bakery and ANCI for donating the food. Thank you to our event sponsors and friends of the Assyrian Aid Society of America, not only for helping raise funds, but also for the camaraderie and spirit of fellowship that they instill in the community.
