The support and commitment of responsible brands went a long way in ensuring the success of the event. The event was powered by Emars Events and supported by Ample Mission and Narayan Jewellers.
Narayan Jewellers by Ketan and Jatin Chokshi, Vadodara were the official partners for the event and showcased their range of stunning bridal and cocktail jewellery. A statement of elegance and panache, the new bridal collection of Narayan Jewellers was a seamless amalgamation of aesthetics and engineering set in contemporary design.
Other partners of the event included Hyatt Regency, Shruti Tejwani Photography, Body Sculptor, Soapbox, VK Media Institute, CHASA IDT, National Decorators and VK Media Worldwide. VK Media Worldwide also took the pledge to support the talent from Smile Foundation in the field of fine arts.
“As a brand we strongly believe in the power of women. We feel that a woman stands for strength, dignity and pride and understand how education is an important step in providing her with an equal platform to excel in life. Hence we felt that as a brand we should come forward and join hands with the Smile Foundation in their journey of bringing about this change through the power of education as well as providing children with the right nutrition. There are few opportunities and not too many platforms for luxury brands to take part in social initiatives. We are really glad that Smile gave us the opportunity to support such a great cause,” said Ketan Chokshi, co-owner of Narayan Jewellers.
The motivation for Ramp for Champs comes from the need to sensitise and engage society proactively to bring about a meaningful change in the lives of less privileged children, particularly girls, by supporting their education.
