International Dinner Dance

This is one of our most popular community events, held in early Fall each year in celebration of Broward County Multi-Cultural Month. The intention is to increase awareness and appreciation for the richness and uniqueness of the diverse cultures in our community. This celebration gives people a chance to have fun and enjoy each other in a social setting while learning about different cultures and cuisines at the same time. Native attire is encouraged. Each year the event features a different country where the food, music, culture, and entertainment are highlighted.

International Day of Peace

The International Day of Peace ("Peace Day") is observed around the world each year on September 21. Established in 1981 by unanimous United Nations resolution, Peace Day provides a globally shared date for all humanity to commit to Peace above all differences and to contribute to building a Culture of Peace.

National Day of Prayer

All faiths are invited to join and pray for our community and our leaders. This celebration highlights the diversity found in our community by coming together to pray and sing, while fostering an understanding of different religions.

Our Committees are a great way to get involved and the support of our dedicated volunteers helps ensure the success of our events.
