DBP Sponsors Life-Changing Documentary “I Am A Girl”

Thursday evening arrived with much anticipation of a fun New York City evening atthe American premier of the film, I Am A Girl, hosted by Girl Be Heard and sponsored by Duggal Big Picture Foundation. Excitement was high as we entered Chelsea Bow Tie Cinemas and were greeted by 6 beautiful GBH posters produced by Duggal Big Picture.A red carpet was rolled out by a stunning step and repeat backdrop also produced by Duggal. Guests were interviewed before and after, adding to the festive mood of the much anticipated premiere. None in our group, however, anticipated how profoundly affected we would feel after watching filmmaker Rebecca Barry’s powerful opus. The film “I Am A Girl” follows the lives of seven girls from across the world and the hardships and struggles they all have to face. Some stories, around issues like extreme low self-esteem, possessive or abusive boyfriends, loss of...

Pelotonia

Duggal is thrilled for a second year to saddle-up and ride with the Limited Brands and Bath & Body Works cycling team supporting Pelotonia, the Ohio-based charity committed to ending cancer. In 5 years, Pelotonia has attracted tens of thousands of riders and raised more than $73 million, with every dollar going directly to cancer research. The model of Pelotonia remains simple: the organization’s operating expenses are covered by funding partners so that 100% of every dollar raised by Pelotonia riders, virtual riders and volunteers goes directly to funding cancer research at the Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center. A record 7,200+ fundraising cyclists joined in this year’s ride through scenic Ohio, including Duggal Visual Solutions CEO Mike Duggal, VP of Creative Services Jerid O’Connell and Senior Consultant Marina Stark. While the three-day race weekend is over, the 2014 ‘ride’ continues; Pelotonia is accepting donations through October 10, 2014....

Girl Be Heard’s Gala

On the evening of December 18th, Girl Be Heard held its first gala ever. Arguably the best event of the holiday season, the joy-filled performances and celebration were a fitting tribute to how far this power-house theatrical group has evolved in the five short years since its inception. What began in 2008 as the Project Girl Performance Collective of 12 girls in a one-time-only performance, is now 170 members strong and touring worldwide. Girl Be Heard is a non-profit theatre company that brings global issues affecting girls center stage, empowering young women to tell their stories. If a girl can change her own life, she can change the lives of others. There was much to celebrate as the organization has demonstrated brilliant success in adhering to its mission. The evening began with a cocktail reception followed by a performance. Celebrity “Fairy Godfather” Nigel Barker introduced the show, which was written, choreographed and...
