The event, sponsored by Oriental Cuisines, is a part of their ‘Joy of Giving Week’, which aims to bring people together to get involved with a cause(s) of their choice. Companies, celebrities, business heads, NGOs, schools, colleges, and general public will contribute in creating a movement of ‘giving’ from October 2 to October 8.
