Seva Spark 2013

This past weekend we had the honor and pleasure of contributing and supporting Seva Food Bank’s Seva Spark Gala in launch of their brand, spanking new location and hub!

The Seva Food Bank provides safe, nutritious and culturally-appropriate food to low- income families living in Mississauga’s L5B and L5C postal codes. An initiative of Sikhs Serving Canada, a registered charitable not-for-profit organization, their mission is to positively impact local communities by acting on the basic Sikh tenets of sarbat da bhalla(the well being of all) and seva (selfless service). They serve clients and welcome volunteers from all faiths, backgrounds, and cultures.

In the weeks leading to the event, the AWE team assisted with various logistics including coordination with vendors and providing advice and expertise on how to pull together an event of this size and scope, in a not so conventional space.  The “venue” was in fact their brand new site and as you’ll see was transformed into an industrial chic event space with the wonderful work and support of Dream Party Decor.  In addition, the AWE team banded together on the day of the event to pull it all through, in terms of event set up, and the coordination of dinner service, bar set up, volunteer management and assistance with the programming of speakers and entertainment.

It was great to be a part of such a great community initiative, and since we love to collaborative with like minded individuals it was the perfect event and cause to support.

Here are some visual highlight!
