BBG Pune Annual Charity Ball – A grand success

The British Business Group (BBG), Pune’s Annual Charity Ball – It’s groovy baby was held on February 15 at Hyatt Regency Pune in aid of ECF.  Over 300 guests attended the evening.

The ball brought together a fantastic mix of people, amazing prizes, delicious food and drinks, live band, casino tables – overall an event that everyone enjoyed.

We raised nearly 11 lakh for Equal Community Foundation (ECF). This amount will go a long way for supporting the work ECF does. It will pay for further development and implementation of Action for Equality Programme across 5 low-income communities in Pune. Which means over 250 young men will get an opportunity to study and practise gender equitable behaviour in order to end violence and discrimination against women.  A special mention also goes to 20 guests who pledged support for sponsoring 6 men to go through the programme each.

On behalf of ECF, we would like to thank Vandana Poria (BBG co-chair), BBG executive committee members, all sponsors and most importantly all guests who attended the event, for making it a huge success. We would like make a special mention of Sonali Rao and Sheetal Rao from ECF for doing a fantastic job of organising the ball.

We hope you enjoyed yourself as much as we enjoyed hosting the event.
