In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier.

CAIR-Chicago launches its Second Annual Ramadan Outreach Program
October 5, 2006
As a chapter of the largest Muslim Civil Rights organization in the United States, it is our duty to empower our local constituents with services that protect their rights in the case of religious discrimination, biased media reporting, problems in attaining citizenship status...etc. It is also our duty to make our local constituents aware of these services.
One approach is through our Ramadan Outreach Program, which consists of a series of mini-presentations on CAIR-Chicago and the free services we provide to Muslims in Illinois, Wisconsin and Indiana. These presentations are given by Executive Director, Ahmed Rehab, during Taraweeh prayer at various mosques in the midwest.
It is important during these times that Muslims are aware of organizations that serve them and their needs. A donation box is also available for local supporters.
