Adoptee Hub fundraiser with film and dinner

November 6, 2021 @ 4:30 CDT - 8:00 CDT

Adoptee Hub, a Twin Cities service and educational organization by and for intercountry adoptees, will hold its (in-person) annual fundraiser under the title theme Jeong: The Power of Reunification, on Saturday, November 6.

Keynote speaker for the event will be filmmaker Sun Hee Engelstoft (born Sun Hee Shin), a Korean adoptee from Denmark. Her 2021-released film Forget Me Not, will be shown at the event. Other special guests at the event will be a recently-reunited Korean birthmother and adult son (names to be announced).  A panel discussion of the three guests will also be included in the event.

Adoptee Hub seeks to connect adoptees with one another and with resources and critical post-adoption services. It strives to offer programs, opportunities and events that encourage adoptees to know their history, have a sense of belonging, experience their birth culture, and access services in a safe and supportive environment.

The fundraiser will be held at Moundsview Community Center, starting at 4:30 p.m. with a social hour and silent auction, followed by dinner and program.  Tickets will be available on the website:  www.adopteehub.org/events.
