Danube to host fashion show
Dubai, June 22, 2011
Danube Buildmart, the retail arm of leading building materials supplier Danube, will host a unique fashion show at Ibn Battuta Mall in support of ‘Saathi,’ a community initiative for persons with disabilities in the UAE and India.
The event, which is being held on Thursday in partnership with the Juhi Yasmeen Khan (JYK) Fashion House, aims to raise awareness and funds for Saathi’s continuing initiatives and programs for persons with disabilities in the UAE and India.
The evening promises to be a night of glitz and glamour with the launch of the latest summer collection from JYK incorporating the newest products from Danube Buildmart, said a statement from Danube.
Attendees for the evening are also set to receive special Danube Gift Baskets and discount vouchers while one lucky guest will win a surprise gift, which will be raffled off as part of the evening’s program.
Saathi was established in 2009 under the patronage of the Consulate General’s Office of India in Dubai. Sanjay Verma, CG of India to Dubai, and his wife, Sangeeta Matta Verma, a noted supporter and patron of Saathi, will also be at the show.
“Over the last two years, Saathi has launched and implemented key programs and initiatives for families and people with disabilities here in the UAE. They have gone a long way in boosting the morale, raising awareness and championing the cause of the disabled,” said Rizwan Sajan, chairman, Danube.
“This event not only aims to raise funds for Saathi’s various programs and initiatives but also aims to help increase the awareness on the plight of individuals with disabilities and show how we can help them," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
