BUFFALO, NY: On Sunday, October 16, WNYMuslims & Desi Varsa in collaboration with Imran Khan Cancer Appeal organized a Fundraising Gala Dinner for Shaukat Khanam Memorial Cancer Hospital Pakistan, at Marriott Buffalo Niagara.
Shaukat Khanum Hospital, where underprivileged cancer patients are treated free of charge. It was created with a vision of making cancer treatment accessible to every Pakistani who needs it. Its mission is to act as a model institution to alleviate the suffering of patients with cancer through the application of modern methods of curative and palliative therapy irrespective of their ability to pay.
The event started with the introduction, and presentations by the representatives of Shaukat Khanam Memorial Cancer Hospital, followed by the testimonials by the attendees before the fundraiser kicked in, through which we raised ample funds by means of pledges, live donations, and auction of the valuable articles.
The highlight of the event was the musical performance by the renowned 90’s band, Junoon-fame singer, Ali Azmat, which started right after the dinner.
We highly appreciate the monetary contributions and efforts made by our community members and volunteers without their support we wouldn’t be able to make our event so successful. We hope that we’ll get the same response in the future as well.
