With 380 guests in attendance and a whopping $56,000 raised last weekend to empower and educate women, Saheli’s September 20th Nirbhaya fundraiser proved to be an overwhelming success. The event, which was a joint collaboration between Saheli and the Indian Medical Association of New England, was sold out a week prior and had set its initial goal for $40,000 and 250 guests.
“At the event one of our sponsors quoted Martin Luther King Jr. as having said, ‘In the end we will remember not the words of enemies but the silence of our friends,'” said Anu Chitrapu, chair of the fundraising committee. “Saheli’s friends have spoken. The 56k raised is a resounding testimonial of their support.”
