The 10th edition of ‘ Festival of Hope ’ will be held on 21st March, 2017 (8 PM – 11:30 PM). ‘Festival of Hope’ (FOH) Foundation is a registered NGO. It is supported by people who have lost dear ones to cancer or taken care of their loved ones and stood by them as pillars of strength during their fight with cancer. The message is simple – There is life after cancer. Get treated on time. Be aware of the symptoms. Celebrate the life you have.
The Foundation is dedicated to cancer awareness through fund raising events and other programs. The couture fundraiser will showcase collections of ace designer JJ Valaya presenting his ‘Ranas of Kachchh’ collection. 100 or more Leaders of Hope and survivors will walk the ramp to Celebrate Life.
Shalini Vig Wadhwa, the woman behind the Festival of Hope Foundation, has been felicitated with the prestigious ‘Priyadarshini Award for Outstanding Woman Entrepreneur’, the ‘Bharat Nirman Award’ and most recently, the prestigious Rajiv Gandhi Excellence Award for working on Cancer Eradication. As the Founder of Festival of Hope, she was one of the 50 most impactful social innovators in the Global listing of World CSR this year. FOH has taken the concept of social work to a whole new level, incorporating it within the luxury domain – the domain which is, perhaps, most capable of contributing substantial funds to make a difference.
The massive success of the event, year after year, is also due to the patronage it enjoys of stalwarts like DLF, Sanjiv Bijli of PVR; Dr. Amit Bhasin – CEO HCL Avitas, Taranjeet Singh – Country Head Twitter, and many more who keep joining this march towards possible eradication of cancer. By participating in this event itself, you can rest assured that your contribution will be used towards the research & advanced treatment of cancer for those who cannot afford it.
