About the Dr. Farook Tareen Award
The 2017 Dr. Farook Tareen Award was presented to St. John's Anglican Church. This award was created by MHI to honour the great legacy of the late Dr. Tareen and is presented each year to the highest fundraiser for affordable housing at Tulipathon. With grateful appreciation, we congratulate Temple Israel for their win last year! We are adding up totals to determine who will win for 2018.
*All cash and cheques must be submitted by July 20 in order to be counted toward the Dr. Farook Tareen Award 2018.
