my Fundraising event was a SUCCESS with the help of all the beautiful people in my community.
Some people I met for the first time, and some others I had not seen in a while so it was a great opportunity to bring everyone together. The night started with flower wall pictures and the soothing music in the background created a much lighter atmosphere. Then, Iran and Canada’s national anthem song was played; I can not put into words how much I love these two countries that I call “Home”.
Following that, Polonez Dance group performed a duet about love and joy. I have had the honour of dancing with this group for about 2years, learn more about their culture and a couple words,” Dziękuję”, “Dzięn Dobry” , and etc.
Polonez is a professional dance group who have been dancing for More than 25 years , and this year they are going to Poland to the World Festival Of Polish Folk Group in the beautiful city of Rzeszów.
In this picture we have Emilia Krupa and Pavel Niemirski , my two incredible friends.
I also had the honour of having the MLA of Coquitlam Burke Mountain Candidate , Jodie Wickens, who is the executive director at Autism Support Network of BC. She spoke about her experience working with children with Autism.
But here’s the exciting part, Hossein and Parsa Abrishamkar are two of my really good friends; two brothers with a passion for music. Hossein is a professional Opera singer and Parsa, a very talented pianist. My Dearest Mahtab Haghighi, who is also a classical and Opera vocalist performed two pieces with her modulated voice; she is truly gifted. It was a pleasure to have them perform at my fundraising gala (I’ll post videos once they are available!)

Anahita Group has been around for about 3years now. It is being managed by my mom , Zohreh Aramian and myself. These beautiful girls did such an amazing job of performing “Jananeh” dance which is a fusion of Ballet, Jazz , Persian dance and Tap.
