HappyDoll Annual Gala: Guests & Gifts Sneak Peek

photo 1

Why come to our Annual Holiday Gala? Here's a sneak peek of what to expect at the upcoming event!


Our Annual Holiday Gala will feature very special guests of honor, HappyDoll ambassador twins, Nithya and Kavya Borra.  The twins discovered our organization when they visited their mother at her office on Take Your Children to Work Day hosted by The Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi last August.  This was the beginning of our amazing friendship.

After participating in the HappyDoll stuffing session at the bank, the Borra Sisters reached out to us with a brilliant idea: As part of their trip to India to visit family in the summer, they nominated themselves as HappyDoll Ambassadors to deliver the dolls to children facing hardships in India.


As a result, the twins visited 2 organizations on their travels to India this summer -Valmiki Foundation Ashajyothi Foundation- where they hosted a HappyDoll session and delivered 160 decorated /100 blank dolls from the US.  The dolls decorated at these institutions in India have since traveled to children in GHANA.

At the Gala, the Borra Sisters will talk about their journey to India and their experience as HappyDoll ambassadors. Please join us for a special evening and meet our amazing ladies!


★ LUNCH FOR TWO at Junoon ($ 200 value)

★ DINNER FOR TWO at Bohemian.

★ ONE FOURSOME at Trump National Golf Club ($2,000 value)

Convinced? GOOD! Now go here and please click RSVP YES!

Stay tuned--We'll continue to post more about our gifts!

Fall Cleaning Success!

We were very pleased by the turnout for the Fall Cleaning Party Fundraiser!
Despite the hurricane, more than 40 deteremined HappyDoll friends made it to the event.
Mimi's stunning jewelry work brightened up the party room, and once again our friends came with items that didn't quite make their "keep" list, and went home with new found items.
With the help of our supporters, we were able to raise $1, 182.00 from this event!
A big thank you to everyone for coming and supporting the cause.

So, what's our next project? We are excited to announce that we will be collaborating with MIKI HOUSE, a high-end Japanese children's brand.  Stay tuned for more details about this event!
