Dear Friends of AIF:
We hope that you and your loved ones are safe and healthy and remain so during this difficult time.
We cannot be more disappointed that our annual Gala has been canceled but the team has put together fabulous video footage of our honoree of the year- Vivek Ranadive and our beneficiary, Pooja Vijay Upadhyay which will leave you inspired beyond words. Additionally, our creative in-house talent has put together a wonderful animation that describes the impact we have achieved over the years with your incredible support. Not all of this production is professional, but it is the best we could do in this very short period.
We understand that nothing can take the place of a fun-filled evening with friends and colleagues to celebrate our achievements and get together for a cause we believe in but we hope you will take fifteen minutes out of your busy lives to review the material we have put together and hope this inspires you to continue and increase your support in these trying times.
Hearty congratulations to Vivek Ranadive: Silicon Valley mogul, first Indian American to own an NBA team, a generous philanthropist and a dear friend to so many of us. We shall find a time to celebrate Vivek at a later time in the year.
Again, our heartfelt thanks to each and every one of you for your support over so many years. A special thank you to our sponsors for the year. The Board would also like to take this opportunity to thank the entire AIF team under the superb leadership of Nishant Pandey, for their exemplary commitment and dedication to the most underprivileged individuals in India.
