The Indo-American Center’s (IAC) 27th Annual Gala will be held on Sunday, October 1, 2017, at the Waterford Banquests in Elmhurst, IL. The proceeds raised from the gala will help to continue to provide services, to help immigrants assimilate to their new home in Chicago. Due to the City of Chicago and State of Illinois’ budget crisis, it is more important than ever that we continue to raise funds from individual donors, corporations and foundations for our programs. We appreciate your support and generosity through the years!

Our keynote speaker is Deepak Kant Vyas, chairman & CEO of Redberri Corporation. He has developed global businesses in over 24 countries, closely working with various governments overseas. He has rightly earned recognition from his peers, including the St. Louis Business Journal, as one of the Most Influential Business Leaders in the St. Louis Region and winner of the Inclusive Leadership Award. Redberri Corporation is one of the largest minority owned companies in the St. Louis Region, and was named one of 2016’s top 100 companies started by an Indian in North America by Silicon India Magazine. Asia 500 Inc. recently conferred the Business Excellence Annual Award to Mr. Vyas.
