Pulutan Party for Sending Refugees to Summer Camp
Date(s) - 05/07/2019
6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
NYACK, NEW YORK
Join your friends and neighbors for a social evening of delicious appetizers, bar snacks, beer and bubbly to support a terrific cause… sending some very deserving kids to summer camp!
Karenderya is pleased to host a traditional “Pulutan Party” to support the Refugees to Camp project, co-sponsored by the Tri-State Jewish Network for Refugee Support and the Capital District YMCA.
“Pulutan,” a Filipino term derived from the Tagalog word meaning, “to pick up,” refers to appetizers and bar snacks served with alcoholic drinks. Sharing pulutan is a very social, communal experience. And what better reason to gather at Karenderya, an immigrant-owned, Filipino-inspired restaurant in Nyack, NY, than to help give recently-arrived refugee children the opportunity to attend summer camp?
Thank you to Industrial Arts Brewing, who is generously providing their award-winning beer for this event. Included in the ticket price is all you can eat appetizers, bar snacks, beer, and prosecco.
ABOUT THE CAUSE
Refugees to Camp is an effort co-sponsored by the Tristate Jewish Network for Refugee Support and the Capital District YMCA with the goal of crowdfunding tuition for at least 20 recently-arrived refugee children in the Albany area so they can attend a non-profit YMCA summer camp.
For any child, camp is an adventure filled with fun, freedom and growth through new experiences. For a recently-arrived refugee child who has endured significant trauma and loss–and who may shoulder grown-up responsibilities like translating for parents or caring for siblings– camp can represent a literal escape into a magical new world. For two weeks, these kids can experience a time-honored, childhood rite-of-passage just like so many other American children… and experience the joy of summer fun in the sun.
