Dear CAMP Members and Supporters,
 
Assalamu Alaikum.
 
We hope you're having an enjoyable summer and we wish you blessed month of Ramadan ahead. In this newsletter, you'll find information on upcoming events (don't miss out on CAMP's Annual Dinner Sept. 2, in Washington D.C.) and we're doing something new - we're spotlighting you - the Muslim professional and your accomplishments.

Read a Q&A with Yvonne Maffei, who writes the popular blog  "My Halal Kitchen," and whose Facebook page has 13,000 fans. Yvonne's often sought after for media interviews and has been a guest on National Public Radio, but before the culinary arts came a calling, she was a Spanish, English language and literature teacher for nearly 10 years. Writer Sameea Kamal asks Yvonne how she transitioned to food writing and she offers an easy recipe for a Ramadan treat.
 
Speaking of Ramadan...Plan your Ramadan with CAMP. Our Chicago, Philadelphia, New Jersey and New York chapters have been busy organizing their annual iftar dinners to benefit Islamic Relief and they're partnering with some great Muslim organizations. Mark your calendars and join CAMP to break your fast, meet and network with Muslim professionals and help Islamic Relief in its humanitarian efforts. Limited seating available so get your ticket today.
 
Thanks for your support! 
 
Sincerely,
Afsha Bawany, Communications Director, CAMP
