Hindu Society students toast charity without alcohol

Hindu Student Society members are planning to have a wild time on Saturday night, but will be getting drunk on fun rather than alcohol.

Partygoers at the Naina event will be made to feel at home in The Empire on Belgrave Gate, where organisers hope to raise money for the homeless.

Anuksha Shah, the President of the DMU Hindu Society, said: “Our first charity is Action Homeless in Leicester. We also support the Divya Sewa Foundation, which helps girls from under privileged Indian families afford an education.

“Whatever profit we make will be split between the two charities.”

The starting price for the event is £30 for non-members of the NHSF and £27 for members, but the organisers have warned that those requesting alcohol will be mocked.

Anuksha said: “The price includes entrance and a full three-course meal, but as we are a Hindu society we don’t promote alcohol at any of our events, although we do offer non-alcoholic mocktails.”

However, the event will allow attendees to get high on excitement through performances from a star of urban music.

Keshme Shah, the entertainment director of Naina, said: “Our headline act is Juggy D who is a major Punjabi urban DJ and singer.”

While boozing may be out of style, the event has been dressed up with many attractions other than Juggy D.

Keshme said: “We’ve also got a fashion show, which students have choreographed and organised.

“We’re contributing with our Asian outfits to show our culture in a way that people understand.”

The 300 people who will be lucky enough to dip into this experience may also have a chance to take home more than just great memories.

Keshme said: “We will be selling raffle tickets and there will be lots of prizes to be won.”

Tickets are still available for the event, which runs from 6.30pm until late. For details contact Anuksha Shah on 07838 952081.
