Axiom Edu-Exchange hosted a free holiday party to celebrate diversity and cultural education on Saturday, December 16 at the Gorton Community Center in Lake Forest.
All were invited to enjoy a light lunch and soft drinks accompanied by several musical performers. Axiom Edu-Exchange promotes cultural exchange, diversity and global learning through a variety of social and educational programs.
“We are very pleased to invite the community to learn more about the value of cultural exchange and to meet other members of the community during the holiday season,” said Afzal Ahmed, one of the founders of Axiom Edu-Exchange. “We value diversity and hope many of our neighbors will take this opportunity to meet one another and enjoy some food, drink and entertainment together.”
Scheduled entertainment included an introduction to Indian classical percussion (Tabla) by Sonali Shrivastava, an Indian classical vocal performance by Charu Swaminathan, and a demonstration of Persian Santur (hammered dulcimer) by Dr. Jalal Rais-Dana. Thanks in part to our co-sponsors Chhabria Law and Suve Brands, there was no charge for admission, lunch, and beverages.
