On this night, we will have a silent auction, fully catered South Asian dinner, a performance from Penn Masala, and a DJed dance party. We are asking for a voluntary $7 donation for students who wish to
attend this event. All proceeds will be going to Sewaa, an organization that provides service and education for abused women in South Asia. We are very excited to work with Sewaa and hope that the South Asia Society can leave a lasting impact on this organization.
