Indo-Canadian Dental Association Gala
Drs. Anil Kohli and Malwinder Dhami were honoured in Oral Cancer Fundraising Event
The Indo-Canadian Dental Association (ICDA) raised over $100,000 in the name of Oral Cancer Research on Saturday, October 6 at the swanky River Rock Casino Resort in Richmond.
The sell-out crowd of 500 included some of the city’s top dental professionals, business people, and socialites. A cocktail reception in the theme of retro Bollywood was followed by a grand stage setting featuring a 40-foot-long screen playing Bollywood greats playing 70’s and 80’s hit songs.
Selling out within the first hour were keys to unlock a cage housing 1oz of gold donated by Nicola Wealth Management. Shiamak Davar’s own Vancouver Dance Team got the crowd in the mood as speakers graced the stage to bring awareness and raise the necessary funds for the BC Oral Cancer Prevention Program, followed by a three-course plated dinner.
Guests were entertained by Bollywood Trivia done in Kaun Banega Crorepati-style hosted by well-known concert promoter Kamal Sharma, followed by a spectacular live auction hosted by socialite Fred Lee. The crowd was then brought to their feet by the singing sensation Jugpreet Bajwa who rose to fame through ZeeTV’s internationally broadcast program Sa Re Ga Ma Pa.
