Rtn. Suresh Agarwal becomes Santa
Over 2,500 under-privileged children enjoyed the Christmas Carnival splash thrown by Rtn. Suresh Agarwal at the CCI
Club, Churchgate, this year. Not only was he generous in his sponsorship of this party, he also spent time with the kids.
The mega Christmas Carnival is an annual party that Rtn. Agarwal has been hosting for seven consecutive years. Back
by popular demand, 2018 is his eighth year.
Held over three days from December 21 to 23, the Christmas party was attended by 100 street children from Salaam
Baalak, more than 1,200 students from the Lighthouse, all our five Bhavishya Yaan BMC schools and some from the Night Study Centres too.
The children spent the morning jumping in the moonwalker, enjoying various rides and dancing to Bollywood tunes being played through the music system. Free popcorn and candy floss were available at the food stalls throughout the duration of the party. At the end, each child was given a snack box by the organisers.
Rtn. Suresh Agarwal also gave each child a return gift of a colourful school bag with a pencil box, books, a tiffin, a water bottle and packets of crayons.
