The whiff of love in the air, a glow of romance,the sound of love,an opportunity to play with your beloved,love food and the decadent taste of aphrodisiac chocolate — we at BLC 19 recreated a touch of all this with our Valentine Hampers that we designed for our fundraiser.

The idea fell into place during the last week of January and became a roller coaster ride for all of us at 19.We had all our stars pitch in with sponsored restaurant gift vouchers,music cds with the latest love songs,tea-light candles,golf session vouchers,red incense sticks and our piece de resistance the almond praline covered heart shaped chocolate— yummy !

The girls all pitched in enthusiastically — be it for the inventory,for the selling or for the coordinating of the drop offs.We had a fabulous time getting together at my place for some sindhi food where 6 of us pitched in packing 160 hampers ! That was a super day where we gossiped and teased each another.

All in all a fab event with real good fellowship — what with us coordinating with our CP sitting in Ambala and Corbett and we getting stressed and freaking her out with bbm’s and calls– poor thing must have thought she is still in Bangalore and not at a family wedding.

An impromptu event that has been revived after a two year break– we did a fundraiser for 159 total hampers with a profit of over Rs.50,000.
