Sevadar is a non-profit organization based in Seattle and we recently transitioned from our annual turban day events to a larger scale event called A Day in Punjab. This event allows us to showcase many different aspects of the the Sikh/Punjabi culture rather than just turban tying. We have events in this community that are religious based such as Nagar Kirtan and also some that are divided by gender such as Teeyan Da Mela for ladies and Kabaddi matches for men. Sevadar wants to provide a space from all community members to gather regardless of age, gender, race, etc to celebrate Punjab. At the same time, our goal is to have this event open those outside of our own community so that they can learn more about Sikhi and Punjab.
We need funds to be able to host such a large event in the heart of Seattle (at the Seattle Center) while keeping it free to the public. We will be using funds to cover venue, artist, food, and other costs.
