The Turkish Cultural Center is hosting its annual tent event in honor of Ramadan this month. The event takes place at the Lance Corporal Thomas Noonan Playground at Greenpoint and 47th avenues in Woodside where free food is served each day at the end of fasting for all members of the community, regardless of their religious beliefs.

It is aimed to allow people in the community to establish ties with people they have not met, make friends and introduce Muslim culture to promote dialogue, understanding and coexistence.

The center says every year the sense of community and friendship grows stronger with its popularity and success.

The Turkish Cultural Center is located 43-49 45 St. in Sunnyside.

For more information, call the TCC Queens branch at (718) 482-8233.
