From the website:
In 2008, Drs. Sadhana and Ram Ramcharran had a friendly curry cook off at their family reunion as a way to bring about some camaraderie and friendly competition among the family members. What they quickly recognized almost every one of the family members prepared their respected curries differently and they tasted different.
Ever since that family occasion, they had this vision of having a major International curry festival in Tampa Bay to feature all ethnicity preparation of their version of curry’s. Three years later TBICF is now a reality and with the success of this event, the goal is to make this an annual event which will help support varies charities.
With the support and involvement of Georgetown Wesleyan University of the Americas (GWUA) becoming the host of this event and with the addition of the Patel Center for Global Solution and Dr. Kiran Patel, becoming the Presenting Sponsor for this festival its with certain that the main intent of this event will be successful. Both organizations shares the same passion and mission to help further education in the world and creating the opportunity for the less fortunate to have an opportunity to learn.
TBICF is confident with the support of the Tampa Bay business community, individuals, local and national sponsors various charities will benefit from the proceeds raised from this event which will go towards reducing world hunger and advancing global education.
