In case you hadn’t heard yet, tickets are now on sale for Taste of Cultures 2013! This is a big deal. This means that you can hold in your hot little hand an 8 ½ x 2 ¾ object that is more than a vestige of a formerly-standing tree. This piece of paper, or “ticket,” symbolizes two things:
1) The Greatest Evening of Your Life—May 4, 2013*
As well as:
2) A donation to support the lives of new Americans—refugees who have fled persecution to live in the U.S.
And once you get the ticket, make sure to show up on May 4, 2013 to the Convention Center in Sioux Falls at 5:30 p.m. (Wouldn’t that be tragically ironic to have a ticket to the Greatest Evening of Your Life and not show up for it? They should write songs about that . . . )

FYI: Our Platinum sponsors are John Morrell’s and a lovely anonymous donor. Our Gold sponsor is First Bank and Trust and our Silver sponsor is Thrivent Financial for Lutherans West Minnehaha County Chapter 30627.

* Can’t actually guarantee that. But it may rank up there pretty high, depending on if you’ve already experienced stereotypically great things like graduating, getting married, having a kid, winning a free trip to Dubai, etc.
