Black Tie Dinner – Entertainment Event
This charity, 'black tie dinner', was not a boring ol' charity events high on speeches and felicitations. It was a snazzy evening that brings together innovative concepts, great music, good food and lots of fun.
Mixing Glamour With Goodness
Talking about this event, Srinivas Ventrapragada, chairman of a charitable trust says, "These social gatherings are much cooler, as they entertain people, and at the same time, lets them do their bit for society. "
A New Concept To Hyderabad
Gopi Garapati, who was part of a series of stand-up comedy acts, says, "Such a concept is very new to Hyderabad. The usual approach of NGOs approaching people and asking for donations lacks that connect." He adds, "But thanks to this concept, people get their money's worth because they have a good time."
Radhika, who works with an NGO, says that some events depend solely on the guests' goodwill to earn money. There is hardly any cover charge or entry fee.
Great Place To Be For Networking
IT professional Srikanth Narayana says, "Only a select group of people who belong to the same social circle attend these events. So, it's a great place to be for networking."
