Co-Hosting the Indian Umbrella X UBC’s Sponsor a Child Gala 2018
On April 1st, 2018, Jamin Feng and Allan Lee of SpeakOutBC co-hosted the Indian Umbrella charity’s fourth annual gala in collaboration with UBC’s Sponsor a Child Club. Both Jamin, 2018-19 Vice-President) and Allan (2018-19 President) gave a speech during the event, discussing the results of their fundraising and highlighting the important work the Indian Umbrella Club does to help others.
The charity event was a lovely, well-organized night attended by over 150 parents and youth. The event raised over $5000 to help less-fortunate children. The Indian Umbrella, which raises funds for small charities in India, is founded on the belief that everyone deserves the chance for a better life, regardless of their current situation.
All profits from the event and the silent auction will be donated to support disadvantaged children locally and globally through Amcha Ghar (a charity that is currently building a school in Mumbai for impoverished children) and Sponsor A Child’s Education UBC (a non-profit club that sponsors the education of South Sudanese Refugee students).
Thank you to Jamin and Allan for putting on such an amazing night, and to everyone who donated and attended! We’re already looking forward to next year.
