San Francisco, CA


Thank you to all who came or supported Shadhika’s 25th Anniversary on Saturday, April 22nd in San Francisco! Every minute of the gala was wonderful, from the bazaar to the unveiling of Shadhika’s new video. We hope you enjoyed yourself as much as we did!

We would also like to thank our volunteer committee for making this event happen, and doing all the behind the scenes magic. A huge thank you to Lisa Acree, Aruna Bellary, Susan Herzig, Jenny MacEwen, Lata Maddipati, Danielle Mayorga, and Martha Nabor!

Highlights of the gala included an authentic Indian dinner, live music by David “El Oso” and friends, an Indian bazaar, a fine wine auction, and dancing with Punjabi DJ Rocky.

With your help, Shadhika raised over $80,000! Your support will make a world of difference in the lives of the young women we serve. It will enable them to complete their education, go to college, become self-sufficient, stand up for their rights, and serve as leaders in their communities.

Registration is now closed.
About DJ Rocky: Dj Rocky believes that it’s not just music, it’s a vibe and when that bass drops we come alive.  With the synth and the snare, this is our one true escape and it’s intertwined with body, mind, and soul.  As a kid growing up in London, Rocky picked up his parents’ old school vinyl records- Classic Bollywood from Raj Kapoor to Amitabh Bachchan, classic disco from Donna Summer to the Bee Gees.  Over the decades, he has added a fusion vibe and now travels across the country and world-wide to perform.  For him, it’s all about love…positive vibes…and amazing energy.  For more about DJ Rocky check out his website at
