Surrey, British Columbia - Sher Vancouver invites you to the DESI-Q Cultural Gala, an event you don't want to miss!
On Saturday, July 8th, 2023, at 6 pm, we'll be celebrating our incredible journey over the past 15 years at the beautiful Bollywood Banquet Hall in Surrey.
As a registered charity for LGBTQ+ South Asians and their friends, families, and allies, Sher Vancouver has made tremendous progress in the community, and we're proud of all that we've accomplished. Join us for a night of South Asian and fusion arts and cultural performances, classical music, and delicious food, including a traditional Indian buffet dinner with lots of vegetarian options.
In addition to the entertainment, we'll also be highlighting the highlights of our 15-year history in Surrey and Metro Vancouver, and we'll be recognizing our amazing volunteers, thanks to our special sponsor, UBC Community Engagement.
We're anticipating a sold-out crowd of 500+ guests in attendance, so make sure to purchase your tickets well in advance. We've already sold 40% of tickets in the first week, so don't wait too long!
We believe in inclusivity and taking care of our community, so if you're unable to pay the sliding scale ticket prices, please email our founder, Alex Sangha, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We appreciate the generosity of those who can contribute more with our ticket pricing so that we can support seniors, students, and the underemployed.
If you're unable to attend the event, we encourage you to make a donation to our registered charity via Canada Helps, which will support our critical programs and services.
We're committed to creating safe spaces for vulnerable and marginalized LGBTQ+ people in our community, and your contribution will help us save lives and provide opportunities for LGBTQ+ people to grow and flourish.
This is a non-alcoholic family-friendly event, and we encourage everyone to come dressed in formal or Indian attire.
Sher Vancouver would like to thank our official sponsors for their generous support, including UBC Community Engagement, RBC, Unifor - BC Regional Council, and MoveUP.
