Indo-Canadian philanthropists honored by Midweek

November 30, 2011

Last weekend saw the 4th Annual Midweek South Asian Awards gala, which honored an array of Indo-Canadians for philanthropic, business, and civic leadership.  The Times of India reports the following Indo-Canadians received awards:

  • Terry Papneja, president of AIM for Seva, “a Canadian not-for-profit organization working towards educating underprivileged children in India”.
  • Ravi Subramanian, founder and chairman of Silverline Technologies, who helped build a temple and community centre in the Greater Toronto Area dedicated to the followers of Sanatana Dharma, and who co-founded the Canada-India Foundation (CIF) in 2007.
  • Harpreet Sethi, who has supported numerous charitable organizations such as the Canadian National Institute for the Blind (CNIB), the William Osler Health Centre, and the KK Eye Institute in India.

Kudos to these generous Indo-Canadians and the others who received awards at the gala!
