The Mills College Chapter of Barakat recently held a fun-filled fundraiser for BLISS called “Basant: The Colors of Spring”, complete with Acapella, a sitar performance and Bhangra! A big thank you to Pernian Faheem for pulling this off. Thank you also to the brilliant performers:
- Srinivas Reddy – a renowned sitar player from San Francisco
- Kal Ki Awaaz – the first all female Acapella group at UC Berkeley
- Chardi Jawani – Stanford University’s fabulous Bhangra team
The funds raised by Pernian and her team will sustain all the girls enrolled in our program for a full month!
To everyone who attended the fundraiser and is wondering when they can get their hands on our beautiful handbags: we are rolling out our first line in August, so keep your fingers crossed and your purse-strings loose :)
