Indian Summer to host masquerade charity ball

21st May 2014 Print

Brighton’s renowned Indian Summer restaurant is to host a Masquerade Charity Ball in aid of Eastern Indian Palliative Care (EIPC), an organisation which supports patients and families with life threatening conditions.

The evening on Saturday 26th July features music from the EPIC 80s band, “the south coast’s finest ‘80s tribute band”, Indian Summer street food, cocktail bar, ice cream stall, masked photos, charity auction and raffle. The event promises to have some amazing auction and raffle prizes.

The black tie & ball gown masked event will be held at the Brighton & Hove Sixth Form College (BHASVIC) from 7.30pm until midnight. Tickets cost £18, which includes a welcome drink.

Co owner of Indian Summer Minesh Agnihotri previously had a career in medical prosthetics. Minesh and his wife, Anbreen, are friends of Dr Sankha Mitra, who founded the UK registered EIPC charity. They were moved by the stories he told of 95 per cent of terminal cancer patients in West Bengal – enduring excruciating pain – who receive no medication, social, or psychological support to help them and their families relieve their appalling suffering.

Anbreen, a neurological physiotherapist, has first hand experience of treating people suffering from end of life illnesses, is coordinating the event.

“We hope to sell around 300 tickets to support the charity and raise a significant amount of money which will make a real difference to caring for those at the end of life stage and enduring unbearable agonies,” she said.
