Gagan Group – CSR initiative at 6th Annual Day of Bavaria Motors
Bavaria Motors completed 6 years of Successful operations in Pune on Thursday, December 19, 2013!
The venue for this year’s Annual Celebrations was Sanskruti Cultural Garden, Sholapur Highway, Loni-Kalbhor, Pune.
As an organisation, We have always been mindful of our responsibility towards the society at large and have been extremely active towards fulfilling our social responsibilities as a corporate. In line with the same, this year we decided to add an element of our “Corporate Social Responsibility” to our Annual Day Celebrations by inviting 172 children (up to the age of 15 years), along with their families and their teachers who are under-privileged, handicapped, physically and / or mentally challenged etc, with the idea of making their day special, full of fun and frolic on December 19, 2013. These children are from five different Pune based social organisations, namely:
- Group 1 – Lokmangal Foundation
- Group 2 – Apang Sanstha
- Group 3 – Ayodhya Charitable Trust
- Group 4 – Mentally Retardation Resident School
- Group 5 – SOFOSH
In order to make their day special we had organised a fun fair with a series of activities like Magic Show, Folk Dance, Juggler performance, Action songs, Santa Claus giving Christmas gifts etc. We had also organised a Talent Hunt contest for the kids where the kids were given an opportunity to showcase their talent like Singing, Dancing etc. There were Prizes given for best performance/s along with a participation certificate to every child who performed during the event. One of the most heart-touching & inspiring performance of the evening was a Dance Performance by “Deaf and Dumb” children who were effectively performing on the instructions given by their teachers through sign language as they cannot hear the song that they were dancing on. All the kids were given goodies & special giveaways which included items like; Blankets, Hygiene products, School Bag, Books & Stationery and a BMW 3 series scale model. Mr. Vishal Agarwal, Managing Director, Gagan Group had left no stone unturned to ensure that this is truly a enthralling experience for all the 172 kids. This occasion was celebrated along with the entire staff of Bavaria Motors along and their family members. Also present on the occasion were Mr. Prakash Chhabria, Chairman, Finolex Industries, Mr. Ghanshyam Agarwal, Mrs. Urmila Ghanshyam Agarwal, Mr. Sushil Agarwal, Mrs. Namita Sushil Agarwal & Mrs. Shweta Vishal Agarwal, . Speaking on the occasion Mr. Vishal Agarwal said, “We are extremely delighted to be able to put a smile on these children’s face, We would like to ensure that we are able to contribute towards the society in every way possible. I would like to thank Mrs. Ritu Prakash Chhabria, Managing Trustee of Mukul Madhav foundation for connecting us to these organisations and playing a very vital role in the co-ordinating this activity. This whole thing would not have been possible without her support. I would also like to use this platform to request more people to come forward & contribute whatever they can towards such organisations and help in making this society a better place.”
