By now, we trust that you have already received our invitation letter and breakfast tickets with a description of this year’s event and beneficiaries. Please consider supporting BIA through ticket purchase and/or other contributions and also through attendance at the breakfast. Please note, we gauge our food procurement based on past experience and tickets sold in advance. Please try to send all donations and tickets payments by mid February to help us better gauge our food and supplies order. Thank you for your consideration, and a special thanks to those who have already sent in their tickets donations.
