We are a group of young Iranian-Americans in Washington, DC who want to represent Iran in the Fiesta Asia  festival this year.  This is the largest celebration of Asian culture and heritage in the nation's capital on May 21st 2016.  Unfortunately, Iran has never been represented in this celebration before.  But we want to change that.

We have gathered a team of talented musicians, dance performers and artists to showcase Iran's culture.  We need to raise funds to cover the costs of our artists and purchase equipment and reserve a spot at the festival.  Your contribution will help us to represent Iran and demonstrate a sophisticated level of Iranian culture and art.  We promise to entertain you with a masterful performance of Santoor, Setar, Persian percussion, calligraphy, traditional dance shows, Persian chai, delicious giveaways and much more.

Thank you again for your non-stop support. Due to 100% chance of rain on Saturday May 21st, we have decided to postpone the festival to Sunday June 5th. The schedule and the performances remain the same. I hope you can still join us to celebrate Iranian culture and heritage in the nation's capital and give me a chance to thank you in person.

Yours,
Mehdi Nayebpour
