Shanti Bhavan 20th Anniversary Gala
The evening of November 9th will be moving and impactful, as we simultaneously commemorate 20 years of success and celebrate the release of the new docuseries Daughters of Destiny: The Journey of Shanti Bhavan (directed by Academy Award-winner Vanessa Roth and scored by Academy and Grammy-Award winning music composer A.R. Rahman).
EY’s Americas Vice Chair Kate Barton, Exxon Mobil Corporation’s President of Global Services Linda DuCharme, Chef and actress Padma Lakshmi, and Academy-Award winner Vanessa Roth, will serve as Guests of Honor for their exemplary contributions to Shanti Bhavan. Freida Pinto will serve as Co-Chair. Richard Verma, U.S. Ambassador to India 2014-2017, serves as Honorary Host. “The Daily Show” correspondent Hasan Minhaj serves as Master of Ceremonies.
Our goal for the evening is to fund the futures of hundreds of new children and their families, as all monies raised will go to the Phase 1 construction of our second school in India.
