An Evening of Afghan Culture and Food

June 5, 2022 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Matin Malikzada is a 37-year old master potter from Afghanistan who was forced to flee for his life with his wife and four young children when the Taliban took over in 2021. When he and his family left Afghanistan, they lost everything–all their relatives and friends as well as their livelihood. This past March the family arrived in New Milford and are making this their new home with the assistance of the New Milford Refugee Resettlement, Inc. group.

Please join us on Sunday, June 5th for “An Evening of Afghan Culture and Food,” a fundraiser for and with the Malikzada family at The Maxx from 5 to 7pm. The authentic, full Afghan dinner will include non-vegetarian and vegetarian fare, a silent auction of Mr. Malikzada’s work, and a New Milford welcome to the family by Mayor Pete Bass.
Tickets are $50 per person and may be reserved at matin.brownpapertickets.com.
The Maxx, 94 Railroad Street, New Milford, CT.
