Sethi Catches The Holiday Giving Spirit

 

Mississauga: Local entrepreneur Harpreet Sethi’s first Annual Media Appreciation Dinner on December 9 drew hundreds of guests to the event. Hosted by Black Diamond Entertainment at the Radisson Plaza Hotel in Mississauga, the event included members of the GTA’s large multicultural media and also English language media.

 

“I want to thank you for all the hard work you do to share important information, keep the community informed of important issues and promote good causes,” said Harpreet Sethi of Black Diamond Entertainments and owner of the Radisson.  “We are very lucky to live in a free and open country where media can work and express their opinions without fear or interference,” he added.The event featured musical entertainment by a live band, plenty of delicious food and dancing. Organizers say the event will become an annual celebration to recognize and show thanks for the important contributions of media.

 

 In another event, Sethi along with wife Ginni and children Prince and Priya, gave the CTV Toy Mountain campaign to benefit the Salvation Army a big boost with a $10,000 donation that will go towards purchasing and distributing toys to disadvantaged children this holiday season.

The announcement was made December 12 at Toronto’s Sunnybrook Hospital and was broadcast live on CTV Toronto evening news and CP24. When asked why he chose to make this donation, Sethi said:  “It’s the holiday season, it’s the spirit of giving — if this small amount can bring a smile to the faces of a thousand children, I am delighted to give it.”  In 2007 he made a $500,000 donation to Brampton’s William Osler Hospital for construction of the new Guru Nanak Emergency Centre and has also contributed to many other worthy causes such as the Canadian National Institute for the Blind (CNIB). Approximately 1000 toys will be purchased and distributed using the funds donated.
