'Taste of India' set for Sept. 15

Tuesday, August 28, 2012

TERRE HAUTE -- The India Association of Terre Haute is planning the annual "Taste of India," at 5:30 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 15, at the Hulman Civic Center.

The beneficiary from this year's proceeds will be the United Way of the Wabash Valley, which services more than 190,000 individuals in a six-county area through their 33 community partners.

Many local organizations, such as St. Ann Clinic, Terre Haute Children's Museum, Ryves Hall, Light House Mission, Happiness Bag, Catholic Charities and others have been recipients from the event in past years.

"We are excited and thrilled to be named the beneficiary of the 2012 Taste of India event," United Way Executive Director Troy Fears said.

"The generous support from this event will go toward helping us to continue to provide necessary funding to (more than) 90 programs all across the Wabash Valley."

The event, hosted by the India Association of Terre Haute, is a showcase of Indian culture and cuisine.

There will be several cultural dances from modern Indian to traditional, all performed by Wabash Valley children and adults.

Approximately 650 guests are expected to attend this year's function.

For tickets or ticket information, call Dr. Jayaprada Konijeti at 442-5500.
