News & Events
BIZAA hosts numerous events each year designed to share the mission and support our growing organization.
Each year is crowned by two major events, the BIZAA Brunch and the yearly mission trip to Nigeria. Learn more below!
2021 BIZAA Champagne Brunch
Where: St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Church in Brooklyn Park, MN
When: Sunday, November 14, 2021
Doors open: 11:30 am
Brunch and Program: 12:00 – 2:00 pm
This year’s Champagne Brunch replaces our traditional Gala, raising both awareness and funds to support the mission of BIZAA.
With your help we can continue our efforts to move African children from the streets to classrooms.
A limited number of tables of 8 are available for $1000.
Tickets are available now for $100 per person.
BIZAA mission trips to Nigeria provide a learning experience for both the participants and members of the Nigerian community. Those who join us on one of our annual mission trips will have a truly life-changing experience.
Okey Anyanwu, Founder and President of BIZAA, is the leader on our mission trips. He was born and raised in Nigeria and has an excellent knowledge of Nigerian social, economic, political, educational and religious issues.
Our mission trips allow volunteers to participate in grass-roots efforts to improve communities. Examples of mission trip activities include:
- Dispensing donated health and personal care items to communities in need
- Meeting with residents and sharing the BIZAA message
- Visiting schools where sponsored children are educated
- Interviewing children rescued from trafficking and child labor
- Meeting with local officials and the families of sponsored children
- Distributing gifts and letters from sponsors to the children
- Participating in welcome ceremonies and meeting with community leaders
If you’re not able to join us, please consider donating (make this a link to the DONATE page) towards a mission trip. It will greatly help with funding our mission, and assist us in reaching our goal of getting vulnerable children off the streets and into classrooms.
NOTE: Our 2020 and 2021 mission trips have been cancelled due to the pandemic.
