A sit down evening inspired by the opulence & grandeur of India was the premise of designer Maheka Mirpuri’s charity gala & fundraiser in aid of the underprivileged cancer patients under the aegis of her charitable foundation MCAN. The décor for the evening was as grand as the cause it was being organised for.
The 4th installment of the fundraiser was graced by the First Lady of Maharashtra Mrs Amruta Fadnavis as the chief patron. Actors Soha Ali Khan & Kunal Kapoor walked the ramp for Maheka in support of this noble cause. They briefly spoke about the deadly disease while cheering Maheka for organizing an evening to raise funds for the financially weak fighting cancer.
An amalgamation of music & fashion, the evening began with a soulful rendition by Vikas Bhalla. Models sashayed down the runway in Maheka’s creations to retro music with a live saxophonist. The event was hosted by siblings Kubra & Danish Sait.
A myriad of thoughtfully put art pieces, jewellery by Renu Oberoi, a luxury destination stay in Thailand along with Maheka’s création went under the hammer in a very interactive live auction that drew high bidding.
Guests for the evening included Ramesh Sippy with his wife Kiran, actor Ranjit with his wife, Poonam Dhillon, Pooja Bedi, Tara Sharma, Bhagyashree, Urvashi Dholakia, Aamir Ali, Schauna Chauhan, Tanaaz & Chiraag Doshi, Amrita Raichand, Hafeez Contractor, Zeba Kohli, Konkona Bakshi, Arti Surendranath, Ravi Krishnan, Bharat Dabholkar, Arzaan Khambatta, Abha Singh, Aditya & Divya Hitkari, Penaaz Masani, amongst others.
