An Indian dinner precedes the event at the East Plaza of the Cintas Center. Dinner is being served at 5:30 p.m. Doors to the banquet hall open at 6:45 p.m. and the event starts at 7:00 p.m.
"Midwest Masala is an opportunity to recognize the changing world around us," says Keyur Parikh, vice president for the South Asian Society. "For many, it will be an eye-opening experience into modern-day South Asian-American culture, while for others, it will be a long awaited symbol of the South Asian presence in the southwestern Ohio region."
The South Asian Society is donating all proceeds from the event to the Tamarind Tree Project, a South Asian, non-profit organization that provides language classes to young children. Proceeds from Midwest Masala are being used, specifically, to set up a medical clinic and provide schools with computers and other resources in the village of Hunsemara, India.
The South Asian Society started in the fall of 2003 and serves as a portal to connect the Xavier community to South Asian heritage. With the club's popularity growing each year, the society has sponsored a number of events and fundraisers, and celebrated the beautiful cultures of the South Asian region.
Tickets are $10, which include dinner. You can purchase these at the Gallagher Student Center or on the day of the event.
