Each year MIC's annual benefit features a different country or region. In 2022, the focus country will be the Kingdom of Morocco, providing guests with an opportunity to sample the culture and cuisine of this fascinating country in an exhilarating environment
You are invited to join His Excellency Aziz Mekouar, Moroccan ambassador to the United States, for an evening celebrating the Kingdom of Morocco, a country that offers a unique blend of African, Arabic and European influences. The evening will include elements of Moroccan culture, cuisine and music as well as a Moroccan-themed performance by Circus Juventas. MICs famous Tour the World silent auction will again feature a dazzling array of unique travel opportunities, experiences and items.
Historically, Morocco and the United States have a relationship dating back to 1777 when Morocco was the first nation to recognize the fledgling United States; and the oldest non-broken friendship treaty, the Moroccan-American Treaty of Friendship, which has been in effect since 1783. Currently, Morocco is one of Minnesotas fastest growing trade partners; and Morocco and the University of Minnesota have a 30-year history of collaboration via the USAID-sponsored Minnesota-Morocco project, which has brought more than 400 Moroccan students to the University of Minnesota since its inception.
Look for your invitation in the mail in April and check MICs website for updates on the silent auction as they become available.
