I wanted to say Thank You for attending or supporting this year’s Annual Aquarius Charity Affair. I am truly grateful and genuinely amazed that over 600 people attended the event throughout the night! From all the bar sales, donation box, and my personal donation, we raised about $3000! That’s amazing! This will improve many children’s lives that has leukemia, fund water well drilling equipment in ourder to give clean drinking water to the poverty regions of Africa, and help fund SAMAR to help them organize multiple bone marrow drives – do you know how rare it is to find South Asian matches?! It’s kind people like you that shows so much love and support that inspires me to do as much as I can to make a difference in this world through the entertainment industry. Even though this is not my “day job,” you guys motivate me to spend as much time in improving and growing “The Urban Nerd” brand. Once again, thank you!
I want to thank all the people who helped me out, especially my sponsors to make this year’s Aquarius Charity Affair the best one so far.
I want to thank Shaadi.com, Luv the World Clothing, Luxemi, and Convey Clothing – without these wonderful companies, this event would not have been as successful as it was. Please check out their websites. Everyone knows about Shaadi.com – (all you single people out there!), and Luv the World Clothing and Convey Clothing have an amazing collection of clothes, t-shirts, and accessories. They have a great sense of fashion design, and for those who always see me sporting Convey gear – well now you can get them too! What’s amazing about these two clothing companies is that portion of their sales go to different causes and charity funds. This is the reason why I am a HUGE supporter for both brands. Also, check out Luxemi – they have an incredible taste in design when it comes to South Asian jewelry and fashion.
I want to thank Parul “The Cake Designer” Patel, for catering all those delicious cupcakes. Did you know those cupcakes were all EGGLESS!?!? Amazing, right? Also, she was the one who designed the Birthday cake as well, and I just recently had a slice of it not so long ago, and wow, it tasted amazing. Heck, I even preserved and froze a slice, acting like it was a piece of a wedding cake – that’s how good it was. Check her out at: TheCakeDesigner.com. I also want to thank Laurentino’s Pasticceria Caffe for providing all the Chocolate Covered Strawberries for the night, and also want to thank Kyotofu for providing their award winning cupcakes for the VIP room.
I want to say thanks to Manny Singh and the whole Indus Tuesdays team for booking Hudson Terrace as the venue for the event. I want to thank all the DJs for providing the amazing music: DJ Insomnia, DJ Bornswift, DJ Flawless (“Waseem Stark”). Special thanks to the photographers: Julian and Gene.
I want to say thanks to all the people that celebrated their Birthdays at the event (Tina, Maneesh, Neha, Farhan, Sabrina, Monty, Nimesh, Sam, Shazia). I want to thank my Event Planner, Rhea Ghosh, who took half my stress away for this event. If you ever need an event planner, I highly recommend her. I want to thank all the people who also helped out on the day of the event: Sarah, Nirav, Dhaval (for handling and running the Bone Marrow Drive), Akash and Omar.
The raffles were not announced at the party, so I will be contacting each of the names were picked from the raffle box for the giveaways. Thanks for everyone that donated and registered at the bone marrow drive in order to do the raffle!
