Turkish Earthquake Fundraising Dinner & Turkish Republic Day Reception

A 7.2-magnitude earthquake struck eastern Turkey last weekend. Turkish authorities and scientists are estimating a death toll between 500 and 1000. Turkish Student Association is deeply saddened by the earthquake and conveys its condolences and well wishes to victims’ families.

In response to this tragic event, Turksa will organize various fundraising activities at SUNY Albany campus. We decided to change the name of our approaching event (Turkish Republic Day Reception) as “Turkish Earthquake Fundraising Dinner”.

Thursday October 27, 2011
7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Campus Center 375
UAlbany Uptown Campus

Please join us this Thursday and support our initiative with your contributions. Please RSVP to Turksa by Ocotber 26th.

Turkey is always in our prayers and thoughts.

Best wishes.
