An Evening in Rajasthan
10/11/2009 - By New York Grand Hyatt Hotel

An Evening in Rajasthan

Children's Hope India's annual fundraising gala, "An Evening in Rajasthan," was held on Sunday, October 11, at the New York Grand Hyatt Hotel in support of the children of Rajasthan.

The colorful event featured rich cuisine, music and dance, stunning Indian dress, and the appearance of both cultural and corporate royalty.

Highlights from the evening included the recognition of AJ and Poonam Khubani of TeleBrands, a leading "As Seen on TV" product company. The Khubanis received the Lotus Award, one of Children's Hope India's highest honors, for their demonstrated excellence in corporate philanthropy. They have been involved with Children's Hope since it's inception in 1992. Princess Padmaja Kumari Mewar of Rajasthan was the guest of honor, joined by Ambassador Prabhu Dayal, the Consul General of India.

Children's Hope India, a New York-based volunteer organization, supports healthcare and education for the children of Rajasthan. The evening was noted a success, having raised $450,000, which is $200,000 more than the previous year.
