The Times of India Film Awards or better known as TOIFA has descended its magic into Vancouver and Sharad’s Lunch Box is on scene capturing all the Bollywood fun!
Sharad’s Lunch Box was live with camera at the Face of Today‘s 4th Annual Gala. The Escada store at Sinclair Centre was transformed into a 1920′s venue by event designer extraordinaire Simon Cooksley. Face of Today’s Founder Kasondra Cohen brought “an evening of glamour and philanthropy” to Vancouver by having recording artist Jarvis Church rock the house with his amazing voice and hot dancers. The party goers were the young influential society of Vancouver that wanted to give back. Event sponsor Justus Parmar of the Justus Parmar Group at Macquarie Private Wealth enjoyed being a big part of a successful group of people that raised money for talented and deserving youth.
