Annual Ball puts charity first
Giving back is the foundation of any healthy, thriving community, and Indo-Americans for Better Community (IndoABC) was founded for this purpose. Since 2000, the Fremont-based non-profit organization has been working to better society through volunteer work and raising funds to support local charities and service agencies, while showcasing Indian culture and values.
IndoABC Founder and President Dr. Rakesh Sharma believes that charity begins at home, and while it is wonderful to aid those in other communities and abroad, there are needs to be met in our own cities. IndoABC provides Indian-American residents with the knowledge and opportunities to help those in need and make a difference right where they live.
Every year the organization holds an evening event to fund their outreach programs and benefit two charities. On Saturday, May 10, the 11th annual Charity Ball will treat attendees to dinner, dancing, and entertainment while supporting Abode Services and Life ElderCares Meals on Wheels program. Abode Services works to end homelessness by providing housing and a multitude of services to families and individuals throughout Alameda and Santa Clara Counties. Meals on Wheels delivers over 350 meals to home-bound elderly and disabled adults every day, providing nourishment and a friendly face to those in need.
By making a simple ticket purchase for an enjoyable evening out, community members can support wonderful local programs that are changing lives, building communities, and most importantly, creating hope for our own citizens.
Tickets are $60 per person or $600 for a table of 10 ($10 per ticket is considered a charitable donation and tax deductible). For those who cannot attend but wish to contribute, donations made payable to Indo-American Charity Ball can be sent to: Indo-Americans for Better Community, 707 Pilgrim Loop, Fremont, CA 94539. All donations are tax deductible. For more information, call (510) 657-0396 or visit www.IndoABC.org.
