This is a reminder to request members of the family to kindly make it convenient to attend the Annual Family Get-together by joining us at the Family EID MILAN in Karachi, God willing, on the First Day after Eid-ul-Fitr, which is likely to be, on or about 4th or 5th October 2008. The news may kindly be conveyed, by word of mouth, to members of the Family living in Karachi, and around the world. This should help those living abroad and planning to visit Karachi to make their traveling plans accordingly.
The venue will be E/8 – 1, 4th Gizri Street, Phase IV, Defence Housing Authority – same venue as in earlier years, through the kind courtesy of Aliya and Nabil Tebawi and by kind permission of Murad and Baneen Mashooqullah, who live there.
Members of the Family wishing to attend are requested to contribute Rs.300/- per couple, i.e. Rs.150/- per head. All CHILDREN, above twelve years, as well as those, irrespective of age, who are dependent on their parents, Rs.100/- per head. It would be appreciated if those wishing to attend, register the number of persons attending, with Khawaja Arshad (584-1835 or 0300-224-3436), at the latest, by Sunday 21st September 2008. Those who wish may also inform Khwaja Sayeed Shahabuddin by telephone (92-21)567-4639 or 0300-292-1903 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Please be kind enough to make a note of the dates mentioned above, and remember to make your registration without waiting to be contacted by Khwaja Arshad who, and members of his family, have had the sad experience, in the past, to keep telephoning and reminding one person after another, to register. Please do not forget that the caterer has to be given the number of guests expected well in advance.
It will be appreciated that the amount of contribution has been kept as low as possible to make it convenient for a large number of persons to attend and make the occasion a success. This has been possible, in the past, due to the kindness and generosity of a few members who helped with donations to enable us to meet the total expenses.
Therefore, those wishing to support this cause – whatever is conveniently possible – may kindly send their contributions to Khwaja Arshad, or let him know the amount they would like to contribute on the day of the function.
We sincerely hope that every effort will be made by members of the family to make this Annual Family Get-together a great success.
