Valentine's Day is surely more about saying those three magical words with chocolates and roses. At India Community Center (ICC) it is about expressing the respect and love we have for our seniors. This year, show you care and join ICC for a Valentine's event fundraiser. Buy a VIP table for 10, named "Gold," which is available for $300 or Platinum for $500 or Diamond available for $1000.

The dress code for the party is formal. Prizes for best dressed man, best dressed woman and best couple on the dance floor will be awarded. The proceeds from this community fundraiser will go towards the ICC Senior Program, which hosts activities such as Yoga, academic discussions, and senior nutrition program.

"The ICC senior program has created a home away from home for our parents" said Kabir Kumar, Development Director. ICC serves over 400 seniors every week.
This varied event is full of entertainment. It offers a chance to socialize, enjoy a romantic dinner and dance to electrifying music.

"ICC has been organizing this for the past 4 years. While earlier the event had mostly teens and youngsters participating, this year it will be more family oriented," said Neha Kothari, Director of Marketing. "The event is completely led by volunteers. The Revenue incurred is $18000 so far and $25000 is needed," said Kumar.

Sponsors email rupal@indiacc.org. Tickets are priced at $30; $50; $100 each and $35 at the door. You may purchase tickets at the ICC front desk or www.Sulekha.com. For more information contact gopi@indiacc.org or call (408) 835-6019.
