BURBANK, California (April 21, 2005) – The Muslim Students Association at the

will be holding a fund-raising dinner this Sunday to benefit “Children in Need”
around the world. The benefit dinner will feature a special performance by the
Muslim musical group, Native Deen, who just released their latest album.
This fund-raising event is one of many in a series of events across the
country that Islamic Relief USA is holding to bring awareness to the plight of
children. Islamic Relief representative Anwar Khan will be making a
presentation about its relief and development projects to help needy children
in different countries.
