De for CPAA
author and columnist Shobhaa De has been one of CPAA's
biggest pillars of support. She is one of our longest
standing patrons and greatest supporters throughout the
years. She has played a major role in the growth of CPAA by
consistently donating for cancer patients personally and
through several friends.
In her newest
endeavour, Shobhaa De collaborates with Saffronart for their
unique online auction of six specially created pieces of
jewellery by six eminent Indian women. Anjolie Ela Menon,
Avanti Birla, Maharani Gayatri Devi , Parmeshwar Godrej,
Shobana Chandrakumar Pillai and Shobhaa De have each pledged
the proceeds from the auction of the jewellery designed
by them to six charitable organisations. Shobhaa De
has chosen CPAA to be the beneficiary of her participation. Shobhaa
De's design epitomizes giving and love, and can be worn as a
hair ornament, a brooch or even a pendant. Each flower has
two brilliant round diamonds on each petal. An exquisite 76
cent Forevermark diamond holds the delicate bouquet
which is an entirely charitable event, will take place
online online at www.inspirations.saffronart.com
on Wednesday January 23 - Thursday January 24, 2008. Do
