Ek Shaam Raksha Ke Naam
October 7 @ 5:30 pm - 11:00 pm
Join us as we celebrate 20 years of Ek Shaam for a night of storytelling, friendship, and entertainment!
Keynote Speaker: Preeti Singh
Preeti Singh was born and raised in India but has called Atlanta home for 17 years now. She has a MBA in Marketing from India and a MS in Computer Science from Georgia State University.
Preeti works in IT and is an Assistant Director at Ernst & Young. One of the joys of her job is being able to work with people from all around the world.
She is an advocate for women and people who find themselves in challenging situations. Preeti’s unique life experiences have led her to run a support group for people undergoing relationship heartache (like separation, divorce, relationship breakup, loss of a loved one etc). It has about 886 members and is one of the few divorce support groups in Atlanta. It has helped dozens of men and women find support, healing and balance in the past few years and fills a need in our Atlanta community that many do not even know about.
Ek Shaam will feature many talented musicians as well!
