Throwback to our 2018 Gala where we had an amazing turnout, everyone had a fabulous time and most importantly we were able to secure donation through our fundraising efforts that are helping the Sonia Shah School and the girls in Kangra, Pakistan. Save the date for our 2019 Sonia Shah Organization Annual Gala on September 21st, 2019 at Doubletree Oakbrook, IL.

This year we will celebrate a significant milestone for the Organization: Sonia Shah Scholarship Recipient, Angela Ouzeir’s graduation from East West University in Chicago with an associate’s degree in Biology, making her the first of her family to attend and graduate from college. She is also set to begin nursing school in January, 2020. Ouzeir has an inspiring story and SSO is a proud catalyst of her success.
The Scholarship Recipient Program is the more apparent effort but only half of SSO’s brilliant work towards educating and empowering young girls. The other half, Sonia Shah School back in Kangra, Pakistan, runs behind the scenes and continues to provide the best available resources for girls and women of the village. Sonia Shah School is still the only school [in the village] to provide free vitamins, uniforms, and updated technology with the installment of smartboards in every classroom.
With the continued support of our staff in Pakistan and supporters in the US, SSO has graduated over a hundred women from the School, placing it as one of the top 3 schools in the district. All of this is made possible only through the generous contributions of our donors, and their efforts will not go unnoticed at the Gala. As a show of appreciation, the girls of Sonia Shah School will be making colorful bags for the Gala, and these handmade bags will be available for purchase at the event, providing a direct source of income for the girls.
Join us for an evening of inspiration and celebration with friends and family of SSO over dinner and entertainment. Entertainers for this year include the Jesse White Tumblers, dance performance by Académie de danse” and Indian tunes by Poonam and Taricka.
