Benefits of the festival for Friends are varied. They are the by-products of small and cosy events. Some are local in purpose. Some others are global in nature.

The VIPEvents are the high points of these events. They are fruitful forums. Most support charitable causes. They are all functional meet & greets.

The messages and deeds of Friends make use of them to reach out to millions of people. Friends with resources cherish them the most. They know how to use them. Or they learn how to use them more.

501c3 status is one of the tools available for Friends. It provides tax benefits. Friends invest for the future. For the future of masses.

Founders of the festival cherish the Friends.  They believe that the Friends with lots of resources make lots of new Friends for the festival!

It is crucial to have new friends. And more and more of them. That is one of the goals of the festival. The other is to educate them.

Grand vision of the founders involves having millions of Friends. They see the festival up as a big umbrella. Health and education as its pillars. And the Millenials ripping the benefits.


Benefits are realized with events. That is true for visitors and Friends alike. Friends employ VIPEvents to get their messages and deeds spread. VIPEvents are created to serve them and their niches.
