Dr. Rachel Navaneelan is not only recognized for her philanthropic régime but also for her increasingly successful Annual Garden Party! As mentioned on our “Home Page”, Dr. Navaneelan initially began hosting this intimate event for friends, family, clients and colleagues in her own backyard in order to raise funds for the post tsunami victims of Sri Lanka which struck in December 2004. Since then, this progressive and efficacious event has quadrupled in attendance as well as in fundraising efforts wherein turn, outgrew her own yard and has now become Rachel’s Kids most anticipated event of the year at various prestigious venues!
Over the last 14 years, Dr. Rachel Navaneelan’s signature event has boasted well over a million dollars in fundraising efforts allowing her to invest in building schools abroad, providing clothing, shoes, education, bicycles, food, water filtration devices etc. while increasing the quality of life for children and families from Sri Lanka. With the rise in donations over the course of the years, Dr. Rachel continues to be diligent and passionate in providing an array of local programs and financial support to families in need in SD&G and surrounding areas as well as overseas.
