Sahayta put up a stall to promote awareness about the organization and also held a donation raffle to raise funds. Anyone who donated $5 automatically entered into a raffle to win prizes including a 30 GB video IPOD. Other prizes included $25-$50 gift coupons sponsored by various Indian stores and restaurants around Boston.
The event was quite successful and we were able to raise $928. We thank our generous donors and sponsors (Jewel of India, Kashmir Food and Spices, Rani, Gourmet India, Best Cellars, Citizens Bank, Solea) for supporting our cause.
Special thanks to Priya, Sayde, Vineet, Prateek, Saqib, Istvan and Tiffany for helping us out.
