The charity event was held  at the Salmagundi Club in NYC on March 1st. Guests were treated to authentic Nepalese food while learning about the work of Empower Nepali Girls Foundation, which supports rural girls’ education in remote Nepali villages. The Charge D’Affaires of the Nepali UN Mission, Ms. Sewa Adhikari, thanked the organizers and guests for their support of this important cause. Pabhita Bagchand entertained with Nepalese songs and Sanjita Koirala with two young dancers performed traditional Nepali dances to everyone’s delight. Afterwards, Billiards World Champion Mika Immonen played with some guests at the big pool tables at the club. One donor was inspired to give an extra large donation at the end, bringing the total we will turn over to Empower Nepali Girls to over $13000.

Thank you to all guests and donors, to Mika Immonen, the performers, the volunteers, and the Salmagundi Club for supporting our cause – we feel nothing is more important for the future of the world than educating girls!
