SFU to host event celebrating Diwali

Simon Fraser University celebrates Diwali, the festival of lights, at a gala Thursday at Surrey’s Crown Palace Banquet Hall.

More than 300 business and community leaders, along with SFU students, faculty, staff and alumni, are expected to attend the fifth-annual event.

The evening, featuring South Asian performances and cuisine, includes a reception and dinner, beginning at 5:30 p.m.

The event features entertainment by Shiamak Davar International as well as an array of prominent speakers.

Funds raised from the event go toward SFU student scholarships to support opportunities for students to work, study and volunteer in the cities and villages of India, through the university’s mobility initiative.
