Bollywood Nights 2015 at the Tampa Museum of Art

The evening was filled with splendor at Bollywood Nights 2015 hosted by Vick and Sharmila Seth, Co-Founders of Children Across Borders (CAB) held at the Tampa Museum of Art. The colorful, Indian inspired gala raised over $400,000 to benefit their charity which serves children in areas of education, health, housing and wellness. Currently, CAB is participating locally in projects with Academy Preparatory, Starting Right Now, Pepin Academies, Train Up First, Voices for Children and 1 Voice Foundation and six projects in India. The live auction raised over $200,000 on fantastic and one-of-a-kind trips to Necker Island and India.

 

A spectacular and magical evening included the capella group from Penn State – Penn Masala who performed and Bollywood heart-throb Vivek Oberoi. Oberoi is described as the equivalent of the American Tom Cruise. Once the auction concluded, the music started and DJ Firoz got the colorfully dressed crowd dancing until nearly 1 a.m. Guests enjoyed specialty cocktails and Indian food including goat sliders and spicy chicken skewers. A delicious buffet of Indian specialties included a fish curry, naan, and chicken tikka marsala was created by S3 Catering of Atlanta. VIP guests mingled during a reception held one hour prior to Bollywood Nights.

 

Tampa Bay METRO was a proud media sponsor.
