I donated $25 in support of this campaign.
"Winter Film Awards supports Aftab!"
Thanks to you, the Aftab Committee has been serving Iranian-American artists for over three years. Your support and belief in our cause keeps us going strong.
We're launching a new campaign to put on a special concert featuring three talented and unique Iranian-American musicians, and it would be great if you were a part of it.
On June 22, 2017, the Aftab Committee will host Johnny Azari, blues musician and comedian, at Bossa Bistro in Washington, DC. Born in Shiraz, Iran, Johnny was relocated to New York at a young age. Transitioning from a city known for wine, poetry, and revolution one noted for grit, madness, and proliferation, Johnny soon turned to music. He plays his own mutant form of the Mississippi Delta Blues, and his live shows blend music with storytelling and comedy.
Boston-based singer-songwriter Muhammad Seven and Richmond-based heavy metal punk musician Sherwin Shokraei will open for Azari. This free show will take place from 7 to 9 PM, and doors will open at 6.
As a concert featuring three Iranian-American musicians performing three different genres of music, this event is sure to be one-of-a-kind. Aftab's hope is that the show will bring together various musical communities, cultural circles, and age groups for a night of meaningful connection—and incredible music. At the event, Aftab also plans to make a video about Johnny, his music, and his comedy.
We are asking a few of our key partners to rally their friends, family, and networks to support Aftab's concert. By becoming a fundraiser for the Aftab Committee, you will help sustain the arts, and you'll help your friends feel good about doing good.
Getting started is easy to do, and it's fun. We'll even give you all the tools you'll need to make a difference. With your help, I know we can reach our campaign goal by 2017-06-22, we can ensure an event that celebrates diversity, bridge-building, and the promotion of the arts.
When you create a personal fundraiser page today, you'll help us guarantee a successful concert, but you'll also join Aftab in its mission of supporting Iranian-American artists and their works.
Thanks for your dedication to the arts!
