1st Annual Mahatma Gandhi Diversity Breakfast


 

The First  Annual Mahatma Gandhi Diversity Breakfast was a huge success! Celebrating Gandhi’s birthday and remembering his impressive life, we learned how amazing it is to live among this colorful and diverse Community, filled with great professionals and people that devote their lives to  a better community . Leader of our Community, such as  Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer, Orange County Mayor Teresa Jacobs, Tax Collector Scott Randolph, Sheriff Jerry Demings, Orlando Police Chief Paul Rooney, Supervisor of Ellections Bill Cowles, Clerk of the Courts Colleen Reilly and many more supported the Event presented by Orange County Property Appraiser Rick Singh, and IACC- Indian American Chamber of Commerce.

We are all different ! We come from different countries, and or  different parts of America, and we learn  to deal  with all our differences, to create a better environment to live and work. As Mayor Teresa Jacobs said on her speech. ” I don’t think Gandhi would be happy with the world today, but he would approve what we do in Orange County“.

It is an honor to be part of this great Community, to be part of something so close to the heart, showing that what we do is not a gift for others but also to ourselves.  Mayor Buddy Dyer that received a Visionary Award Orange County Teresa Jacobs, The Vanguard Award,  The Orlando Magic Vice President of Philanthropy and Multicultural Insights- Linda Landman Gonzalez received the Corporate  Vanguard Award, Walt Disney World received the Corporate  Visionary Award, Jon Morgan Esquire– Morgan & Morgan P.A. received the Advocacy Award,  M.P. Rama JHM Hotels received the Lifetime Achievement Award, Dr.  Barbara Jenkins Superintendent of Orange County Public Schools received the Educational Achievement Award, and Anil Deshpande from Park Square Homes, received the Corporate  Champion Award.

Marla Weech Anchor from Chanel 13 was the Mistress of Ceremonies and a great  lecture about Gandhi  was given by Dennis G. Dalton, PH.D.  Closing remarks  by the Honorable Rick Singh, CFA-Orange County Property Appraiser.  We now have to wait anxiously to the next breakfast that for sure will be doubled in attendance.
