Khushii (Kinship for Humanitarian, Social and Holistic Intervention in India) a non-governmental organization working to empower the poor and destitute communities in both rural and urban areas.
Led by a team of committed philanthropists, and headed by legendary cricketer Kapil Dev, Khushii is presenting an upcoming art raffle called Art Loot .
The event is being hosted by Vivek Khushlani – the President of Khushii on 24 November, at the Clarion Collection Hotel in the Capital.
Art Loot, is a fun and lucrative opportunity to win in a lucky draw, pieces of art all at one fixed price. The works are creations of well known Indian artists, whose art value is significantly more than what the buyer is paying. This is what makes the Art Raffle even more exciting. ‘12 years back when we started Khushii, it was with the single minded purpose of bringing ‘happiness’ to the life underprivileged children. We are indeed fortunate that so many likeminded people have come forward and supported us in our ongoing endeavours towards the same cause. The Art Loot is our next effort in that direction,’ says Kapil Dev.
The response has been overwhelming and leading artists like Ram Kumar, S.H. Raza, Paresh Maity, Rekha Rodwittya, K.G. Subramanyam, Jaysri Burman, Rini Dhumal, Seema Kohli, Satish Gupta, Pratul Dash, George Martin, Binoy Varghese, Sanjay Bhattacharya, G R Iranna, Nayana Kanodia, Kamar Alam, Hemi Bawa, Satish Gujral, Anupam Sud, Manu Parekh, Gogi Saroj Pal, Sunil Gawde and many more have contributed artworks towards this collection.
‘I am pleased to be associated with Khushii’s Art loot in support of its remedial education programme for less privileged children across the country. The art raffle features works by the country’s renowned artists and we are looking for large hearted support from generous patrons to take home these wonderful creations at an unbelievable price and brighten a lesser fortunate child’s future,’ says Vivek Khushlani.
All art works are available to the buyer at a fixed rate of Rs. 3 lakhs. The market value of these art works exceeds 3 lakhs, thus, the Loot.
Khushii Art loot presents an unique and fun opportunity of taking home a work of art and contributing to a good cause. The process itself is quite enjoyable and the attendees to the event end up having a very good time.
