In the presence of devotees and special visitors, organisers conducted a Laddu Auction at the Ganesh Immersion. Through this auction, the organisers were able to raise $23,000.

Pallavi and Charan added:

“By participating in such events, our children can learn about the rich Hindu culture, festivals and traditions. We would recommend all Indians in Australia to attend such celebrations in their area and support the organisers. As such events and celebrations are not possible without active volunteers.”
