Please join us to celebrate the 91st anniversary of the Turkish Republic.
Our theme is "UNITY" as the Turkish proverb says "Birlikten kuvvet dogar!" so let's make this year's event GRAND!
The ticket prices are even lower than last year's to make it more feasible, to see a larger crowd and to have the largest "HALAY of ARIZONA" at the dance floor!
This year we also have live performance from "The Lark and Key" a fascinating jazz trio located in the Valley. You'll get to enjoy an amazing concert during dinner.
Needless to say we got the kids covered with a babysitter while you are enjoying the music and then the dance...
And one last thing!!! We'll not cut the fun with a "Never Ending Raffle!"... Once the music is on, it'll not stop till midnight.
This year we'll have a donation table instead of a raffle table and all the donations will be sent to the families of the victims of Soma mine collapse disaster through Turkish Philanthropy Fund. Unlike the raffle, you'll be given a donation receipt which you may use for tax purposes!

The second annual Kurban Bayramlasmasi potluck event will be on October 5th at Tempe Papago Park south ramada... Just like last year we'll get together and enjoy the food and treats brought by our amazing community! And just like last year we'll have delicious "Kavurma" from MedFresh.
For both us and the kids to enjoy the great October weather, this event will be hosted on Sunday afternoon at 3pm. So have a late breakfast and come for a late lunch... The ramada is located right next to a playground for the kids to enjoy, and a pond for the scenery for all.
As always, the soft drinks and tons of water will be provided by TAA-AZ. This is a free event that does not require membership. Just show up and bring a dish if you can. For those of you would not like to come empty handed but want to contribute some food on the table, we'd advise on chips or fruits vs cookies and cake as we always have delicious homemade deserts that are significantly more popular!
The gala dinner tickets will be on sale during the event! REMEMBER THIS IS THE LAST CHANCE TO GET THE TICKETS AT DISCOUNTED PRICES!
Hope to see you all soon...
- Category: About
Annual membership to TAA-AZ helps us fund our events throughout the year and have our records constantly updated. Throughout the year we have many events including movie nights, picnics, potlucks, and the gala dinner which need to be at least subsidized by our low annual membership fee. While everyone is always welcome to join our events, members will receive a better pricing on ticketed events. They will also have the opportunity to advertise their business on our website.
Sustained membership also helps us during event planning as we would have a better estimate of the number of attendees. It also enables us to find sponsors for our events as we can prove to have a certain number of member base.
The annual membership is $15 for individuals and $25 for families. There is no membership fee for TUSA member students however they do need to provide email address for database purposes.
