On behalf of the Shakti Awards planning committee, we would like to take this
opportunity to cordially invite you to the upcoming Shakti Awards Gala in
honour of International Women's Day.

As you are aware, the Shakti Awards were founded in 2000 to recognize and
honour women who have displayed Shakti-strength and energy, in their community,
locally or globally. The accomplishments of the women amongst us represent an
inspiring account of positive social, cultural and economic change in the
world. The Shakti Awards are an opportunity for us to recognize these women and
share their vibrant stories.

The event will be held on Saturday March 8th, 2014 at 6:00 p.m. at the
Bollywood Banquet Hall, 8166 128th St. in Surrey. We will be presenting Shakti
Awards as well as dinner, entertainment and dancing.

We are fortunate to have inspiring and motivating citizens like yourself in our
community, true personifications of Shakti. We are asking for your support in
making the Shakti Awards bigger and more inspirational for all women around us.
We would be very grateful if you are able to help us by providing sponsorship
or a donation to help us defray the cost of holding the event.

This year all funds raised will be donated to Shakti: Empowerment of
Women, Children and Families Society. This grassroots organization is a
non-profit society dedicated to empowering women, children and families. We are
committed to working with underprivileged members of our community and bringing
resources together to support those in need. We have organized community events
like ‘Women’s Wellness Day’ in partnership with SFU, Surrey Campus and other
community organizations and ‘Community Cafes on Sexual Violence’. We host
education and information on social issues on radio and TV shows and provide
resource referrals to individuals, who may face several barriers to accessing
resources and support.

We hope that you can join us and support the work we do. For further
information regarding the event, confirm your participation or to purchase
tickets, please contact Sonia Andhi at 604-307-8796 or Anu Pala at
604-551-3287. Tickets are available at $35.00 each or $30.00 advance purchase.

Let’s come together and celebrate women and acknowledge those who have made a
difference in our communities. We thank you for your support.
