The event hosts are the Boston, Buffalo, Grand Rapids, Atlanta, Washington D.C., Maryland, and Virginia chapters.

“The purest form of happiness is a child’s smile. It is what motivates us (at Akshaya Patra) to continue to provide nutritious, hot meals to our beneficiaries, so they are not deprived of an education and smile knowing they each have a bright future ahead,” said Vandana Tilak, CEO of Akshaya Patra. “It is thanks to our supporters, donors, corporate sponsors, and partners that we can come together and make this happen.”

Moderating the event will be the astute business leader, Milind Pant, CEO of Amway; he will have a fireside chat with the brilliant Sonu Sood, Bollywood actor and humanitarian.

Later, world-renowned Dr. Deepak Chopra, Founder of the Chopra Center for Wellbeing, will be speaking on the ‘Nature of Reality – Metahuman.’ There will be musical performances by the talented singer and songwriter Abby V and beautiful multi-faceted dancer Vinaini Jayasinghe throughout the event.
