 MWA Auction results and project updates

Respected Community Members,

In my last project updates communications I mentioned that we are putting MWA current premises on sale and in last four weeks our agent and EC did a great job in managing open house events every Saturday’s. Auction day was Sat, 27 May 2017 which started at 12:45 PM with many interested parties present physically and some bidding over the phone. Bidding started with very low value around 700K but got intense very quickly with other parties showing interest. I have never seen auction started that low but then doubled its value within minutes.

I am very pleased to announce that we have sold MWA Granville premise in a really good price of $1.455 Million. As per our sales contract we will vacate this premise in six months which nicely fit with our project time line.

Congratulation to you all and this money will be well spent in your new Imam Bargah project which will serve our current and generations to come.
I also want to take this opportunity to thanks all community members, my team and Abbas Aly efforts for a great fund raising lunch on 7th of May which generated $200K in two hours. I must say brother and sisters that these events are really God's blessings and help from our Imams AS. Without this unseen help we wouldn’t be able to accomplished what we have achieved so far.
Now that day is not far when we all will step in to our new Imam Bargah InshAllah.

Trustees elections:
Recently we held trustees election for three trustee positions. 21st of May was the last date to submit nominations. Following three community members submitted their nomination with 20% member’s signatures.

I take this opportunity to congratulate above three trustees. It will be our pleasure to work closely with these intellectuals for the benefits of MWA organization.
