STAFFORD: The Indo American Forum of Fort Bend, focuses its efforts solely on supporting the underprivileged, undeserved and needy in Fort Bend County, by supporting charities in the area providing assistance through education, shelter, food, healthcare and familial and substance abuse.

After launching a fun filled Fall Opener, a Hawaiian Luau evening, complete with Pacific Drums and Hula Dancers, and a successful membership drive and general body meeting, on the open deck of Madras Pavilion, overlooking the tropical waterways of Sugar Land, it set the stage for its signature event, the Navratri Garba.


This past Saturday, September 24, the Stafford Center came alive to the rocking rhythm and music of Darshak Thacker , Kashmira Nayak, Hardik Jani, and Kamal Haji as a thousand plus crowd danced its way into the Navratri Season with much fanfare and fun. Udipi Café provided much needed refreshments and the ever-popular sugar cane juice to quench thirsty souls.


The event was also sponsored by Memorial Hermann Sugar Land Hospital, Pioneer Research, Omar Saeed and Mass Mutual, Udipi Café, Deep Foods and Cox and Kings Travel services who gave away 4 land packages for a 4 day Dubai vacation. Attendees hailed the IAF Navaratri event as a premier event that truly affords spirit of Navaratri and time for fellowship.


The Indo American Forum is now preparing for the Spirit of the Holidays Gala, on Friday, November 11, at Safari Texas, which will highlight the diverse holidays celebrated in Fort Bend and honor a wide spectrum of charitable organizations with donations of support.


Both events help the Indo American Forum of Fort Bend raise funds to extend support to a variety of non profit organizations in Fort Bend which provide education, shelter, food and resources to those in need.

Indo American Forum of Fort Bend invites the community to participate in and enjoy these events and thus make significant contributions to important causes, as a unified body.
