A glittering evening with Silicon Valley’s who’s who, gathered at the Silver Creek Country Club, to show that they have a big heart. The WomenNow Charity Ball, hosted by Ena Sarkar and her team, proved to be a huge success. Featuring Black gowns adorned by the WomenNow Team, white angels representing 7 Charities, exotic venue, food from Arka Restaurant, wine from Kirigin Cellars, ambience and entertainment by Bay Area’s favorite Singer, Raj Sohal, DJ- Edwin Singh and guest singer Minnie Shukla.

WomenNow started with the concept of bringing people together to celebrate the holiday season with the purpose of helping 7 charities that were handpicked to benefit from the event. During their last season, most of these charities were featured on their talk show. All of them had very unique stories and the single mission of helping uplift the underserved and underprivileged. WomenNow set out to use their brand as a platform to help close the gap between their guests and the charities and let guest connect with the charities they were supporting.

…You Are Our Business Model!

More people are reading India Currents than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organizations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Our independent, community journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as $5, you can support us – and it takes just a moment to give via PayPal or credit card.
