The 2009 Christmas Eve Dinner at The Dons’ Wood-Fired Pizza was quite a success! Below are some selected pictures from the event.
In addition to feeding loyal pizza fans and satisfying local Redskins fans, The Dons’ was able to make this a truly meaningful Christmas Eve, by collecting a healthy amount of donations for East Africa Missions. Owner Waleed Zarou is very active in missions and has participated regularly in missions trips to Kenya over the last decade, including one where he taught African locals how to make pizza. Part of the inspiration for this event is to bless the local community here and educate them about very serious needs worldwide.
Right now is a critical time in East Africa and the need for missions is very great! In addition to preaching the gospel message of Jesus Christ and building churches, donations also go to feed those in need. This last year has dealt a crushing blow to East Africa, particularly in Kenya, where political turmoil, rioting, and instability in the economy coupled with one of the worst droughts in years has brought a large part of the population to the brink of starvation.
