The British-Yemeni Society will gather its members and friends for a Special Summer Fundraising Event in aid of Yemen and the Yemeni people. We would like to invite you to join us and get this fundraiser event off the ground on Thursday, 20th June over a great selection of Yemeni food, drinks, oud music, poetry, and a silent auction of a number of Yemen-related items.
 
Our fundraiser includes a full buffet to be catered by the Queen of Sheba Restaurant in London. Vegetarian and vegan options will be available (do please let us know if you have any dietary requirements). We will also be serving both alcholic and non-alcoholic drinks from separate bars. There will be live music and poetry along with other sounds of ancient and modern Yemen.
 
A number of objects from Yemen and relating to Yemen will be available for a silent auction. These will include Yemeni coffee and jewelry, as well as two watercolours created exclusively for this event by Caroline Lees, a longstanding member of the Society.
 
This year's venue features a lovely lounge at the Arab–British Chamber of Commerce in Mayfair. Weather permitting we will also have full use of the garden. If you require any guidance to this location please let us know. Join us and help fundraise for Yemen!
 
Tickets cost £40 per person (with an additional administrative fee of £3.23 per ticket). We encourage our members and friends to purchase their tickets from Eventbrite, but we will try to accommodate other forms of payment. Please note that there is a limited number of tickets available. Be sure to get yours soon!
