Annual Friendship and Dialog Dinner 2014 was held in Hilton-Austin on October 19th. Over 250 guests joined us for this multi-cultural event of food, festivities and conversation, as we celebrated diversity and came together to recognize the value of our common bond.
Keynoter Tom Spencer, well-known to Austinites, addressed “social responsibility in a world of growing disparity“. He is currently Executive Director of “I Live Here, I Give Here.”
We were also fortunate to present Oguz Buyukbas, a whirling dervish, who shared his unique spiritual experience through dance, accompanied by Sufi musicians.
The night’s entertainment also included sand painter, Berina Suljic, who showed an amazing art style that many guests probably saw for the first time.
