Diversity celebrated at Unity Dinner
Each year, the Indo-American Community Federation (IACF) hosts a ?Unity Dinner? to honor those in the community and celebrate and promote unity in diversity.
Founded in 1993 by Jeevan Zutshi, IACF was created as the first Indo-American organization to build bridges with mainstream organizations, diverse leadership, think tanks, and public officials. The non-profit aims to bring diverse people together to address serious issues facing the community at large, promote understanding and positive relations through seminars and conventions, and provide financial assistance to needy and deserving individuals.
The first Unity Dinner was initiated in 2002, in the wake of September 11. The event has been promoted by Congressmen Pete Stark and Mike Honda, both of whom have attended every year without fail, including former Lieutenant Governor John Garamendi. It has been recognized by the State of California since 2012 by having a Unity Day celebration on the Assembly and Senate floor.

Masterful, romantic and passionate, the music of Hungary and Austria echoes the historic Danube River and is the inspiration for Music at the Missions Thursday, March 22 concert at Old Mission San Jose. The program is poetry and storytelling at its finest, with stellar and deeply moving works by Haydn, Doppler, Smetana, Liszt, and Dohnanyi.
We will have many familiar faces on stage, including Steve Huber and Ertan Torgul on violin, and Ivo Bokulic on viola, with Rhonda Bradetich, flute, and Katherine Lee and Aileen Chanco, pianos. Im also happy we will be joined for the first time by Jennifer Kloetzel, former cellist with the celebrated Cypress String Quartet, said Bill Everett, artistic co-director of Music at the Mission.
