Description:

Our Prophet ﷺ was the most beautiful of people.  Beautiful in his outward appearance and conduct. Beautiful in his care and concern with others.  In this upcoming retreat, in the company of gifted scholars and teachers, we will learn how to embody Prophetic beauty. We will be reminded of the beauty with which the Prophet ﷺ lived. We will explore how we can bring that beauty to our communities and to our households. We will learn to live the light of Prophetic guidance, and how that light will empower us to become truly beautified.

Are You Able to Sponsor a Ticket?

    1. Bronze package: $175 (Sponsoring half a ticket) we can run a business card sized ad for your business in our Student Handbook
    2. Silver package: $350 (Sponsoring one student) 1/4 page ad in student booklet (good space for printing company coupons for time limited discounts after the Retreat)
    3. Platinum package: $1050 (Sponsoring three students) 1/2 page ad in student booklet, logo added to website, flyer in Retreat bag for students, & logo on event newsletters as event sponsor

Please note a donation of this size could help actually about 8-9 students attend, as many are asking if they could just get $100 or so of financial aid for the ticket to be more affordable for them.  This in turn would be give you and your company the blessings of helping students of knowledge attend such an event that would help them increase in faith & practice – all while benefiting your own company in getting brand exposure and sales. We just really need your help with our financial aid for the retreat in particular as this will help make the ticket more affordable to a number of people which would in turn increase our student numbers at the event itself.

We don’t know what is in your budget, so please let us know what you would consider.  We could really use your help to make this event a success.  Please email [email protected] for more information.
