Viera, FL — Brevard Schools Foundation hosted its annual Sunset Moonlight & Music Fundraiser, “Midnight in Mumbai”, on April 28, 2017, and is pleased to announce that $90,000 was raised. 100% of the event proceeds benefit the Supply Zone for Teachers, a resource center that provides Brevard’s most vulnerable children the school supplies they need to succeed in school. Premier event sponsors included Asiatic Society Sponsors: Community Credit Union, Atlantic Development of Cocoa, Inc., Flora Fountain Sponsor: Vintage Home Estates, and Hanging Gardens of Mumbai Sponsors: Delaware North, BIMDA, Wells Fargo Advisors – Yvonne McGuire, Florida Eye Associates and Wickham Dental Care.

The event transformed Ambika and Ravi Palaniyandi’s beautiful ocean front estate into an enchanting and whimsical representation of Midnight in Mumbai, where guests enjoyed cocktails and live entertainment in form of Bollywood Dancing from Galmont Ballet and Orlando Bellydance. In addition to the native music of India, guests were treated to a dazzling display of authentic Indian cuisine courtesy of Taste of India, a variety of American fares by Bayside High School’s Culinary Program, a wine pull, silent auction, and live dueling auction that featured school board member Andy Ziegler and News 13’s own Greg Pallone. Among the items that were popular for the live auction were an exotic supercar driving experience in Las Vegas, NV and an Icelandic Adventure which includes hiking inside of a glacier and witnessing the Aurora Borealis.

Brevard Schools Foundation wishes to thank all of their sponsors, donors, in-kind sponsors, and volunteers for their efforts that help to ensure the Supply Zone for Teachers can fulfill their mission of serving the educational and creative needs of children in Brevard Public Schools by providing free school supplies to teachers at high-poverty schools.
