4th annual Diwali - A Night to Shine 2014

“On Saturday, October 18, 2014, 450 guests shined in the Carlu as Toronto General & Western Hospital Foundation (TGWHF) celebrated the 4th annual Diwali – A Night to Shine in support of UHN.

The gala was in support of two incredible centres at UHN: The Peter Munk Cardiac Centre & The Sun Life Financial Banting and Best Diabetes Clinics.
The evening was filled with dynamic performances and exquisite cuisine. Back by popular demand the gala was catered by 10tation Event Catering in consultation with Chef Kamal Kumar. The evening’s
entertainment curated to educate, entertain and engage guests, was directed and choreographed by Divya Kumar, Founder and Director of D?T INTERNATIONAL INC.
The theme of this year’s event was ‘Faiths and Festivals of India’. The guests embarked on a journey to explore and experience the common collective energy that resonates among the many diverse faiths, and the unique and individual festivals, that shape and define the exotic, rich culture of India.
India is often described as a land of many religions and languages, but it might as well be described as a land of festivals. India celebrates holidays and festivals of almost all the faiths in the world. Our guests
experienced various festivals celebrated in India by Hindus, Muslims, Christians, Jains, Buddhists, Sikhs and Parsis.

Diwali, the namesake of the gala, was included among the festivals as the spectacular grand finale. Known as the ‘Festival of Lights’, Diwali symbolizes good health, hope, luck and prosperity and signifies the triumph of good over evil, righteousness over treachery and of light over darkness.

The event was the vision of Co?Chair Raj Kothari, this was his third time co?chairing the event. The event would not be possible without the dedicated, driven and creative volunteer committee including: Raj
Kothari, Dr. Michael Baker, Dr. Anil Chopra, Mala Chopra, Shaila Kothari and Donette Chin?Loy Chang. The event was a wonderful success raising over $450,000 net.”[newsrelease]
