Soirée For Sudan Out Of Town Guide

attend our annual Soirée | enjoy a weekend in Memphis

Posted by OBS Team on September 27th, 2019

Our 8th annual Soirée For Sudan is coming up on March 28, 2020 at the Memphis Grand Carousel! This breathtaking evening benefits the two incredible schools we sponsor in Yida Refugee Camp. The 2020 event theme is inspired by Cirque du Soliel, and tickets are now on sale. REGISTER HERE »

Every year, we always have supporters who don't live in Memphis, TN come to our home city for the weekend. Soirée For Sudan is worth visiting Memphis on its own, but there's plenty else to do, see, and experience while you are here. Memphis makes for a romantic weekend getaway and is just as fun for a group of friends.

If you don't live in Memphis but have always wanted to attend Soirée For Sudan, we encourage you to make a weekend trip out of it! We've put together a list of our favorite things you should do while you are here. Here's a quick video about our city:
