Thank You for a Successful 2020 Gala

Posted on: December 21st, 2020 by Arogya World

We celebrated Arogya World’s 10 year anniversary during our virtual fundraising gala earlier this month. We were pleased to share it with so many friends and supporters of the organization. It was a wonderful night!

The impact of Arogya over the last 10 years and our momentum as we move into the next was highlighted throughout the evening.

We were honored and humbled by all the special messages from key sponsors and program recipients as well as the surprise message from Deepak Chopra. Through the gala, we reached 100% of our fundraising goal. All proceeds from Arogya World’s Gala go directly toward groundbreaking programs that help prevent diabetes and NCDs in India’s schoolchildren, working professionals, villagers, seniors, women, and more.

A big thank you to Anupy Singla, author and co-founder of Indian as Apple Pie who Emceed the event, to Berklee Indian Ensemble for their incredible music performances, and to all our sponsors. The auction prizes and necklaces were a huge hit as was the beautiful digital cookbook that was sent to all the registrants as promised. And, congratulations again to Pamela Yih, Arogya’s CFO, for her tireless contributions to the organization. We couldn’t have done it without you.

Our Gala would not be possible without our generous sponsors and donors. Please join us in thanking them:
