‘Yaadon Ki Baarat’ to take stage June 21 in Punta Gorda/Port Charlotte area

June 11, 2014

Dear readers:
Since he moved from Pittsburgh to North Port six years ago, Dr. Jignesh Patel realized that there was not much going on in terms of preserving Indian culture in the Southwest Florida’s suburban areas. Joining hands with Dr. Manish Kapadia and other community members, Gulf Coast Gujarati Samaj was founded to achieve that goal. With support of Indian community associations in Southwest Florida, “Yaadon Ki Baarat” is a first-of-a-kind event in Southwest Florida. Tickets start at $30. The low ticket prices are possible, thanks to platinum sponsor and pharmacy owner Anand Patel of Port Charlotte. Other local businesses are also supporting the event.

“Yaadon Ki Baarat” features singer Bhoomi Trivedi (of “Raam Leela” fame) along with Srikant Narayan (of Mohammad Rafi fame), Apurva Shah (of Kishore Kumar fame) and Rupali Ghogare. The 6:30 p.m. show will be at Charlotte Harbor Event Center, 75 Taylor St., Punta Gorda. For tickets, call Dr. Jignesh Patel at (732) 309-1292, Charlotte center at (941) 833-5444, visit http://www.ticketmaster.com or http://www.gcgsfl.org
