Message From The Organizers:

As we strive to foster better understanding among SWANASA Youth and members of the Butte County Community, we’ve been hustling to put together this event within a tight timeframe. This marks our very first independent large-scale event, led by a Planning Committee comprising only 10 members. Balancing full-time studies and part-time jobs, we’re dedicated to instilling pride in SWANASA cultures and faith through various community initiatives including established chapters on both campuses as well as our newly founded Arab & Muslim K-8 Youth Alliance. 

While we’re determined to create a magical night, we kindly ask for your patience as we navigate this journey. Currently, this event is entirely funded out of our own pockets, limiting our capacity to some extent. Despite the challenges, we’re committed to delivering an unforgettable experience for all attendees. Thank you for your understanding and support as we embark on this endeavor.
