We are excited to share that our feature for our annual gala is the culmination of a healing project through collected narratives in partnership with Pangea World Theater. This exclusive program is designed to foster artistic healing and will also include a performance from the renowned Katha Dance Theatre.


We look forward to hosting you for an engaging community celebration! We'll have a traditional thali dinner as well as a cash bar!

This is a celebration for our community! Dress for the occasion in formal and/or cultural clothing.
