Eid & New Year Celebrations in Southern California

A highly entertaining family program was the highlight of a joint Eid al Adha and New Year celebrations at the Knotts Berry Farm Resort Hotel in Buena Park on Sunday, December 31.
Prominent members of the community turned up in large numbers to be part of the celebrations in the glittering spacious hall of the hotel. Consul General Syed Ibne Abbas also graced the occasion. Every one was in a festive, buoyant mood and thoroughly enjoyed the program.
Dr. Yasmin Feroz, a local social activist, along with Sofia Altaf and Fatima Khan, organized the program which had a little bit of everything - live entertainment by Arhum and Depa and thunderous DJ by Arhum band. Door prizes included ladies dress from Mirage and Keshish boutique, round trip ticket to Las Vegas from Travel and Tours and 4 Sunday brunch coupons from Shahnawaz Restaurant.
Delicious appetizers and a sumptuous dinner with a variety of dishes catered by Dara Khan of Shahnawaz Restaurant added to the evening’s fun and gaiety. Dr. Yasmin has organized such programs several times in the last six years and each one has been a wonderful experience for the guests. This year was no exception. For many, the evening indisputably turned out to be a memorable one.
Dr. Yasmin, Sofia and Fatima should be commended for hosting the successful program which brought community friends together to enjoy good food, good music, and good company.
