Karva Chauth Pre-Party 2017
Friday, October 6: In its second year, the annual Pre KarvaChauth Party celebrations were even grander this year at its retail location on Oak Tree Road, Iselin, NJ. The event that was announced in mid September on radio and its social media platforms created anticipation across the city. The store was decorated with the festive theme and the event began at 12 noon with the live dhol that enthralled the crowd to dance. All walk-ins were greeted with free gold mehndi and a special bridal make-up consultation that was given by MUA Nighat. To make the event even more memorable there was also a Bollywood style photo shoot. The most exciting part of this event was the Karva Chauth PoojaThali decoration Contest where participants were asked to use their creativity to present a comprehensive and artistic creation. The contest received an overwhelming response with so many entries. The thalis were judged by popular 8k radio presenters - RJ Anubha and RJ Sushma, who had a tough time making a decision with all the amazing creations. Rachna Aggarwal from NJ was selected as the lucky winner who was awarded with a 22k gold mangalsutra by Bobby Bansal and Jagruti Bansal, the managing heads at Raj Jewels. There were also first and second runners up that were picked on special request by the judges. This was another initiative on part of Raj Jewels to connect with the Indian community across the region. “Culture is one thing that we must be able to conserve no matter where we live. And we are proud to be able to celebrate these traditional festivities with the South Asian community,” announced Bobby Bansal. The evening ended at 9 pm with the incoming crowd dancing away the night.
