Exodus Refugee Fundraiser

Here's a meal you won't be able to duplicate at home: local immigrant-owned restaurants will cater the annual fundraising dinner of Exodus Refugee Immigration.

"Home at Last in Indianapolis" set for 6 p.m. 26 September in the Athenaeum, 401 East Michigan Street, Indianapolis. Tickets are $35 in advance, or $45 at the door.

Three women who were refugees will speak at the gathering, which also includes entertainment and a cash bar.

Exodus Refugee has a long history of welcoming refugees from many countries, cultures, languages, faiths and political opinions. It began in 1981 with the mission to serve the legal needs of immigrants and Cuban refugees, who had arrived as part of the Mariel boatlift in 1980.
