Bollywood Bang is back

Vernon's popular Bollywood Bang event is on its way back to town. Set for April 28.

Bollywood Bang first came to life in the Okanagan in 2013 known for serving up culture, cuisine and community support.

Since its inception the event has surpassed all expectations and become one of the most anticipated events of the year, selling out in just six hours last year.

"We are proud and grateful to have TD Bank be our title sponsor for a second year, their support is such a compliment to the work we do," said Dalvir Nahal, event coordinator. "I am just amazed at the response this event has received from the community."

"Bollywood Bang has proudly raised over $206,000 for local charities including CMHA, Upper Room Mission and the Vernon Jubilee Hospital and NONA. This year they will be supporting the Family Resource Centre."

The services provided by the Family Resource Centre have a direct impact on the quality of life for Vernon and the North Okanagan.  

“It is a tremendous honour and opportunity to be selected as the recipient for the 2018 Bollywood Bang,” said Scott Manjak, executive director of the Family Resource Centre. “The support from this amazing event will have a direct impact on the delivery of our programs and services. The funding helps us achieve our purpose of building a resilient community by empowering one child, one individual and one family at a time.”

Both men and women have the opportunity to dress up in South Asian outfits and enjoy a unique experience.

Th event features amazing Indian cuisine, mixed with Bhangra dancers and a live DJ.

Last Year over 985 people enjoyed the event and attendees included people from Vernon, Vancouver, Penticton, Kelowna and Salmon Arm.

The event will be hosted at the Vernon Curling Rink, and Nahal says the decor will be unlike anything you've ever seen before.

"We will literally transform the venue into a Bollywood Scene."

Tickets are $125 each and go on sale at 10 a.m. on Saturday, March 3.

They can be purchased online. 


Outfits for the event will go on sale April 7 and 8 at the Lakers Clubhouse.
