Dear Pakeer Community Members, Greater Bor Members, South Sudanese and American friends,

We cordially invite you to attend our “Awak De Pakeer” and Fundraising Event which will be held on May 19-20, 2012 in Des Moines, Iowa. The purpose of this event is to raise fund for our Agricultural Project in South Sudan, so we need your moral and financial support. Unlike all the previously held fundraising events and Awaks, “Awak De Pakeer” is one of a kind that will blow your mind because it will entail a variety of fun and salubrious activities! Below is the list of some of those activities:

  1. Dance Teams Competition with the winning team receiving a prize for best performances in terms of dancing styles, songs and among others, after the program. And for this activity to be outstanding, we are gladly extending our affable invitation to Patuk-tuk, Muor Ci Mum, Vermont, Boston, Washington D.C. and New York teams, and many other Dance Teams to attend our Awak.
  2. We will hold drawings for two Laptop Computers; that’s, participants will first purchase tickets for $100 per a ticket and after the drawings, the two winners will get their Laptop Computers at the price of $100 each! This is a great deal! (For more information or to sign up for drawings, please call Garang Ayiik @) 617-412-7243 or Jok Dau @614-556-1774).
  3. Other drawings will include Gym (Sports) Shoes and other special items.
  4. T-Shirts with Pakeer Community Association Logo, South Sudan Independence pictures and among others will be available for a donation of $20.
  5. Cultural/Traditional Show and Comedy: People will dress up in their favorite traditional attires and comedians will entertain the audience. We have requested New York New Drum, Baai Bor that was unveiled this past year by New York Team to be used in our Awak! Most importantly, Jok Dau, Garang Ayiik and Dut Kuol teams will unveil their new songs when they face off on May 19, in Des Moines, Iowa.
