SPECIAL FUND-RAISING TO HELP VICTIMS OF DEVASTATION CAUSED BY

When it rains, it pours. Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, Jose, and Maria have hit various regions of the United States and other islands in the Caribbean impacting lives of millions of people and caused near destruction of properties. Disasters caused by recent hurricane Maria have left entire region in Puerto Rico in an unimaginable condition. The storm has knocked off power for nearly all 3.4 million residents of the island. Food and medicine supplies are dwindling. Fuel and drinking water are scare. Regions in Florida and Texas have barely begun recovering from similar disasters.

IACCT has established a Hurricane Relief Fund specifically to help the victims of these disasters. We are requesting you to donate generously for this great humanitarian cause.

BAL VIKAS GROUP PERFORMANCE ON NAND MAHOTSAV FESTIVAL
Tuesday, August 19
August 19th, Shri Krishna Nand Mahotsav was celebrated at IACCT. The sponsors and festival attendees had a fabulous surprise treat from Bal Vikas Group. About 20 children from three to twelve years of age, enacted ten scenes from the popular TV serial Mahabharata by B.R.Chopra. It included the birth of Shri Krishna and the childhood Krishna Leela. Our special thanks are due to Pratima Kotekal and Poonam Lohmor for orchestrating the artful production, and organizing rehearsals. Srinivas Kotekal and many volunteer parents designed and constructed a stage on time for the program and also for future use. Srinivas Kotekal also captured all the amazing moments through his camera and a video of the whole colorful program. Many thanks to all the volunteer parents for helping with costumes and collecting props for the skit. It was a grand production put together by the group for the community on this special day.
