The Atlanta chapter of the American India Foundation (AIF) will hold its second annual fundraising gala on April 2.
More than 200 people, including some of the region’s most influential philanthropists and entrepreneurs, business executives, luminaries, and community leaders, will attend the event, which will be held at the Atlanta Athletic Club, according to a press release from the organization.
The gala will honor three top global business leaders: David Abney, who is the CEO of UPS; Patrick Decker, CEO of Xylem; and N.K. Chaudhary, founder of Jaipur Rugs.
“A really diverse group of people and corporations have come forward to support our cause in financial and other ways,” said Amitabh Sharma, the Chair of AIF’s Atlanta Leadership Council. “We have already been able to take the event to a whole new level in the second year of our presence here. I see a high level of engagement in Atlanta for AIF going forward.”
Apart from the honorees, the main speakers of the evening will be Dennis Lockhart, President/CEO of the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta, and Victor Menezes, retired Senior Vice Chairman of Citigroup & Chair Emeritus of AIF.
