The lights, music, and excitement of Bollywood were in the air at this annual gala event, and the lawyers of Litwiniuk & Company were there to enjoy it all. Attendees were treated to a sumptuous Indian dinner, while dancers entertained with choreographed numbers right from the silver screen. Following the entertainment, beloved Calgary newscaster and long-time Society supporter Darrel Janz took the stage to MC the remainder of the event which included a live auction with items generously donated from local businesses.
This year’s gala unfortunately coincided with the devastating Nepal earthquake, and all proceeds are being directed through the For the Love of Children Society to that country. Society founder and President Ashid Bahl recounted for the crowd the devastation he had seen, having just returned from Nepal the night before. Video footage showed before and after shots of Society schools – beacons of hope reduced to rubble in an instant. Emotional but undeterred, Mr. Bahl announced plans to rebuild immediately, and issued a plea for support which was immediately answered through lively and generous bidding in the live auction.
Litwiniuk & Company are proud to support the For the Love of Children Society and to help enable them to continue on with the work they do at home and all over the world, supporting and educating children. Please visit their website for more information.
