1,800 Turn Out for CAIR-LA Banquet

(LOS ANGELES, CA, 9/18/05) – More than 1,800 people turned out Saturday night for the annual banquet of CAIR’s Los Angeles office (CAIR-LA) at the Anaheim Convention Center. Professor M. Cherif Bassiouni of DePaul University offered the keynote address at the event. Other event highlights included a speech by CAIR National Board Chairman Parvez Ahmed and an award presentation to the stars of FX Networks’ “30 Days.” Earlier this year, that program featured a West Virginia man who lived as a Muslim for a month.

Banquet attendees also included interfaith leaders as well as a number of local, state and national law enforcement authorities and elected officials, including Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez, Los Angeles Sheriff Lee Baca and Orange County Sheriff Michael Carona.
