Every year during the month of Ramadan, Muslims fast from dawn until dusk. When we break our fast, the meal is called Iftar.

The appreciation Iftar started in 2016 as an effort to bring non-profit leaders and local volunteers to share in our fasting.

In 2017, the MMY held its first annual Appreciation Iftar. The event honored non-profit organizations and volunteers over an Islamically significant meal, hosted by families, businesses, and the MMY. Each year we award an organization of the year and a person of the year with a plaque and a monetary gift.
