On Friday, September 23, Origin India will hold a fundraising dinner with proceeds benefitting humanitarian and “CNN Heroes 2010” award-winner Narayanan Krishnan.

His mission is to create the Akshaya Home, a single shelter that will be a place of comfort, compassion and love for the homeless community of Madurai. When completed, the Akshaya home will provide many of the basic essentials of life, including three healthy meals a day, clean and comfortable beds, bathing facilities and medical care.

The evening will begin with passed hors d’oeuvres and cocktails, along with a multi-course food and wine pairing. Guests are also encouraged to donate what they can.
