(Chicago, IL 10/18/05) - The Chicago office of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) announced today that the Mosque Foundation of Bridgeview will recognize a local High School for its accommodation of its Muslim students and a Chicago Tribune reporter for her fair reporting. The awards will be presented during the Annual Mosque Foundation Community Dinner. The dinner is by invitation, and guests include representatives of local schools, businesses, social and community organizations, hospitals, law enforcement, local townships, etc.

WHAT: Annual Ramadan Community Iftar & Awards

WHEN: Tuesday, October 18th, Reception 5:45 PM. Dinner 6:15.

WHERE: Aqsa School / Mosque Foundation, 7360 W 93rd St., Bridgeview, IL. 60455

This year, two Community Service awards will be presented. One is for Argo High School for its efforts to accommodate the needs of its Muslim students. And the other award is for Manya Brachear, Religion Reporter for the Chicago Tribune, for her reporting of positive portrayals of the local Muslim community.

“Recognizing American individuals and institutions who help make America a better place to live for all is incumbent upon Muslims who are taught to enjoin what is good and forbid what is evil,” said Dr. Zaher Sahloul, Mosque Foundation President.

Tabassum Haleem of the Organization of Islamic Speakers, will be presenting a program called, "Muslim Contributions to Civilization," along with Imam Jamal Said, who will talk about the meaning of Ramadan.
