Eventful Wednesday: Nestination India Re-Cap

After crunching all the numbers, the Nest board of DC's raised just under $8,000 for the women of India at their fundraiser on October 14th. We were truly able to turn the event space into a fantastic outdoor cocktail party that combined delicious food, great entertainment, and tons of educational information. Dr. Virander K. Paul, Minister of Press and Information for the Indian Embassy, was in attendance that evening and happily shared information regarding the success micro-financing has brought to the country of India. Rebecca Kousky, founder of Nest, shared powerful story about her inspiration for partnering with Indian women and truly demonstrated the heart behind the event. We would love to thank City Dance Conservatory and Dhoonya Dance for their wonderful performances that evening as well as Indique Heights for their delicious traditional food and unique venue. Enjoy the photos!
