About The Event

The 2022 EC4A Gala is a power packed event attended by an eminent Bollywood icon and Austin's high caliber celebrities, all coming together to support EC4A Scholarship Program for underprivileged youth!!



Embassy Suites , Round Rock (270 Bass Pro Drive Round Rock, Texas, 78665)


Oct 29 , from 5:30 pm - 11:00 pm CST

The Gala is hosted by EC4A for a singular reason - to provide scholarships for our youth. Many of our youth are economically disadvantaged and cannot afford to spend money for education. The pressures of the pandemic compounded by inflationary surge have made education even more unaffordable to those who need it most. With your help, we hope to change this.

EC4A Gala brings the community together with a shared spirit of selfless giving and gratitude at the core. There will be special guest speeches, iconic Bollywood Celebrity, Entertainment, Live & Silent Auction, Dinner, Drinks and much more for you to have a gala evening in support of a noble cause!!!

This is your community we are serving, these are your neighborhood children and youth that are being empowered. With great success comes great responsibility. The Gala provides you a chance to help your community while having fun in the process.

There are so many ways! You can financially support the Gala by becoming a sponsor, you can directly impact the yough by making a donation. Every $1k provides a student with 1 scholarship. You can help us spread the word. Your presence at the Gala is the best way to get involved.
