Lynn’s Comments: On Saturday, March 16th, 2013, I attended the official launch and fundraiser of The Youth Code. It is a new non-profit organization that aims to help children of abuse live a life beyond surviving. Kalista Zackhariyas, the brainchild behind the organization is using her personal life experience to transform the lives of many, give hope and creating amazing futures for children.
The launch was held at the Grand Banking Hall of One King West. It was co-hosted by Supermodel/Actor Sam Sarpong from L.A. and Veronica Chail from Bollywood Boulevard. The evening entertainment included: The Winner from So You Think Can Dance, Hip Hop Artist and Former Child Soldier Emmanuel Jal gave a great speech and performance, along with singer Keisha Chante. I enjoyed every moment of the entertainment and was moved by all who graced the stage.
With an abundance of food and desserts, there was also a silent auction of great items!
We all have life experience for a reason, and it was so touching to see an amazing woman who made her dream to make a difference in the lives of others a reality!!
Please donate generously to this organization: The Youth Code.
My Prayer is that all children in the world have love, food and a comfortable place to sleep. AMEN

Lynn’s Comments: It was on Thursday, June 23rd, 2011 that I was invited to the Green Carpet Gala, an International Indian Film Awards Buzz event held at the Liberty Grand in Toronto. It was a night full of music, drink, dance and fine entertainment, buzzing with local celebrities. Overall, I would say about 1000 people showed up and it got to be a busy night. I met old friends and made new ones. I had a great time dancing and had wonderful company. Thanks to Dinesh Sachdev of FILMI for the invitation and thanks to Ravi for taking me there.
Anokhi’s 5th Annual Gala was held on Friday, February 4th, 2011 at the prestigious Liberty Grand entertainment complex in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It is an annual event that honours a roster of international talented South Asians from business, entertainment, fashion and media. There was a 2 hour awards and entertainment show, accompanied by a 4 course dinner and followed by an exclusive VIP afterparty.
It was an inspirational and heart warming evening that celebrated the success of Raj Girn, Anokhi and talented individuals from across the Globe. I had the good fortune of having Jenna Kash of JK Lifestyle, as my company for the evening. We had the opportunity to meet both international and local celebrities. I had a great night and look forward to Anokhi’s Gala next year!
