NEW YORK, U.S.A., June 13, 2001: A whopping 1.3 million dollars was raised for the villages in Gujarat at a dinner concert held last Tuesday on Wall Street. At a US$1,000/per plate, the dinner was organized by the American India Foundation. Former President Clinton, an honorary member of the AIF, was a guest speaker at the event.The evening program highlighted Indian music and a fashion show of India's leading designers. However, Clinton was the main attraction at the event and his support was appreciated by the Indian community who gave him a standing ovation when he announced, "What happens in India is one of the three or four most important things that will determine the course of the 21st century."
