Event Presenting Partner
Indian Summer Festival’s brand new annual Holi Fundraiser is here!
Few celebrations are as joyous, vibrant and happy as this Spring festival. Holi is about transformations: ridding yourself of past errors and making fresh starts. And about immersing yourself in colour – literally and metaphorically. So we’re throwing a Holi party to shake off the winter blues and celebrate new beginnings.
We’ll have mouthwatering nibbles by Chef Tushar (whose culinary resume includes a stint at the two Michelin star restaurant Gaggan – one of the world’s top 10 restaurants!). Add to that delicious libations and DJ Lil India, who knows how to move a room full of happy people and you’ve got a party!
Our virtual Holi experience created by a team of multi-media geniuses will have you all colourful without the cleanup! So come dressed in white if you want to be a canvas for their talents, or go all out with colour if you want to go head to head with them.
The evening will feature a silent auction full of treasures so you can support Indian Summer while taking home something special. Here’s a list of items generously donated by some of our sponsors and supporters:
