Charity for Hope, a multipurpose nonprofit, hosted its Bollywood Charity Event on Friday, Feb. 12, 2016 at the Royal India Restaurant, 8990 Miramar Rd, San Diego, CA 92126, and raised $74,000, surpassing its fundraising goal of $50,000. Donations from sponsors and attendees will go directly to Charity for Hope’s Hope for Nepal campaign, established to build new homes for Nepal Earthquake victims.
Through the Bollywood Charity Event, Charity for Hope will be able to build 160 forever homes for victims of the 2015 Nepal Earthquake who are currently enduring the cold winter weather on the streets, tents or makeshift shelters.
“Charity for Hope believes that everyone deserves a sustainable standard of living, regardless of their place in the world,” said Charity for Hope Executive Director Vipul Dayal. “Our board was committed to making sure that Nepal did not become yesterday’s news because help was desperately needed, so we committed to completing our project.”
Charity for Hope gives 100 percent of donations directly to building new homes for those affected by the 2015 Nepal earthquake. Charity for Hope partnered with Charitable Care Foundation to benefit BETIndia.org, an organization that provides relief in accidents and natural calamities such as drought, flood and natural disaster, in order to have volunteers on location to execute the build out.
The Bollywood Charity Event featured a social hour, authentic Indian dinner, live entertainment by Violinder, who performs a blend of Indian Classical, Bhangra and Hip Hop, and dance. Donations are still being accepted through Feb. 29, 2016 and can be made by visiting www.charityforhope.com.
