NYC Event 2015

Dear Friends and Supporters,
We take great pride in sharing with you the details about our event “Cocktails and Conversation with Fareed Zakaria” that was held on Feb 5th, 2015 at CUNY Graduate Center, NYC.
Our goal, through this event, was to raise $125,000 for Seva Mandir. We surpassed our goal and were able to raise $140,000! Thanks to your immense generosity and trust these funds will directly support the transformative development programs carried out by Seva Mandir. The funds raised will allow Seva Mandir to work with over 15,000 people this year. This has been made possible only due to the support that you all have provided us.
The anticipation and planning towards the event was intense and so worth all the effort. We would like to especially thank the Benefit Committee, our generous hosts at CUNY, and all the volunteers who put in so many hours.
This event would not be a huge success without two major contributors – all our supporters (corporate and individual) and Dr. Fareed Zakaria. We are very thankful for Dr. Zakaria’s time and his perceptive words. His address tackled the big questions in contemporary global politics, drew a provocative counterpoint between the authoritarianism that has bred ISIS and the vibrant and peaceful democracy of India, and ultimately showed how organizations like Seva Mandir are indispensable towards making Indian democracy work.
To our wonderful supporters, your trust and support makes us push ourselves to make a difference.
Thank you so very much!
