A GOOD time was had by all when more than 100 people attended a recent HEAL fundraising
dinner and dance at the VIP lounge in Edgware.
Organisers husband and wife Ash and Rakhi Dhanani said that all proceeds from the night
would be presented to HEAL and that a lot of awareness was raised of the charity’s work in
helping provide shelter, healthcare and education to underpriviliged children in India.
Guests arrived to a champagne reception and canapes and were then taken into the main room
where they watched an eye-catching performance by Love The Beat School of Dance.
Next came a presentation all about HEAL from Rakhi and Ash, before a buffet dinner and then
lots of dancing.
“From the feedback that we had everyone had a great night!” said Rakhi. “And in addition to
raising approximately £650, we created a lot of awareness of the great work being done by
“As well as the money raised on the night, one of our friends has said she will be making a
donation of £200 and although some people could not make it to the event, they have told us
they will also contribute directly to HEAL.
“Furthermore, one person who attended our event has informed us that he has decided to
sponsor a child and we had lots of interest from others, so hopefully our event will prompt
a few more people to sponsor children.”
