About the Gala

You are invited to Share & Care’s 34th Annual Gala, an exciting and memorable celebration in honor of our beneficiaries. This year's event, titled "I AM EMPOWERED," presents a Bollywood musical extravaganza — Sur Sargam, featuring renowned singer Parthiv Gohil with a symphony orchestra, and a special appearance by our ambassador, actor Omi Vaidya!

Over the past 34 years, Share & Care partners and contributors have helped us transform the lives of thousands of people across the globe. At last year's sold-out show, 1,800 guests raised more than $1 million in donations to support our Signature Programs in education, healthcare, and women empowerment. These funds have allowed us to expand our programs and assist more beneficiaries in more locations.

By purchasing a ticket to this year's event, you will be supporting our continuous mission to help underprivileged individuals break the cycle of poverty. You can create a permanent impact. You can EMPOWER.

We hope you will join us for an evening of music, fun, and celebration on Saturday, December 10, 2016.
