 The Second Annual Around the World in Seven DaysRefugee Awareness Campaign and Fundraiser is scheduled to run from June 10th to June 17th at Salt Lake City and Park City restaurants.  Each restaurant's chef  and a refugee community leader will team up to create a dish that fuses traditiional flavors of the refugee's homeland with the chef’s creative style. Diners can order the special, with the proceeds benefiting  the Utah Refugee Coalition.

Around the World in Seven Days is part of a month long refugee celebration and awareness campaign.  Please visit for a list of events in the community.
