Maharaja's Ball a win for guests and the kids of our community
OTTAWA - The Sens Foundation announced that the Maharaja’s Ball, held this evening at the Ottawa Convention Centre, raised $100,000 in support of its community rinks project.
More than 600 guests, including the High Commissioner of India Shashishekhar Gavai, Calgary East MP Deepak Obhrai and members of the National Capital Region’s corporate community, attended this year’s event. Attendees at the sold-out event were treated to a live and silent auction, which included items from the various regions of India, along with an exquisite meal which featured different cooking stations interspersed between several authentic buffet tables, breathtaking entertainment from a traditional "Rajasthani Folk Dance"
troupe flown in from India. Paired with the spirit, the splendours, the spices and colour of the Maharajas' palaces, it made the evening one to remember for all who attended.
“It was so humbling to see the overwhelming support from the community for such a great cause,” said Nalin Bhargava, chair of the Maharaja’s Ball organizing committee. “We thank our sponsors, guests and the members of the High Commission of India for helping us make this event a tremendous success.”
The event has raised more than $100,000 for local charitable organizations over the past six years.
“On behalf of the Sens Foundation, I would like to thank the entire Maharaja’s Ball organizing committee for their support.” said Sens Foundation president Danielle Robinson. “This year’s event will go a long way in helping us get more local children out onto new community rinks and into sports and recreational programs.”
