Summer Picnic - ವನಭೋಜನ

HKK Annual Summer Picnic was held on June 21st Sat 2014 @ J.B. Williams Park, 705 Neipsic road, Glastonbury, CT 06033.
Wow Prithvi Way to Go..... GO YOU !!
Kudos to Prithvi Guddera, second son of Latha & Venu Guddera (HKK Life Members & past President of HKK), for shaving his head over the weekend for a cause! Prithvi challenged HKK members on picnic day, to raise more than $500 in order for him to shave his head for charity. In turn, HKK managed to collect more than $600 at the event, thanks in part to Yuva Hoysala activities! This money will be donated to ‘My sisters place’, (http://sistersplacect.org/) a non-profit organization dedicated to end the homelessness and domestic violence around the Hartford area. Thank you all for your donations and for supporting this great cause. Let us hear, another round of appreciation for Prithvi!!

Namaskara all,

What a wonderful day it was !! On the first day of summer, with a lovely weather outside, we together made HKK Annual Summer Picnic a grand success this last Sunday. 

Thanks to each and every one of you for making it all possible.


Special thanks to all our volunteers for helping in various ways to bring together such a wonderful and fun filled event for all ages.


Through the generous donation of our members and guests and through the Yuva Hoysala game arcade (Jaatre), we raised about $600 for charity. This money will be donated to ‘My sisters place’, (http://sistersplacect.org/) a non-profit organization dedicated to end the homelessness and domestic violence around the Hartford area. Thank you for your donations and for supporting this great cause.


With the continued support from our members and guests, HKK is committed to bring many more such events throughout the year…..Thank you for the help and support.
