Celebrate Philanthropy

Celebrate Philanthropy

The Association of Fundraising Professionals/Western North Carolina Chapter (AFP-WNC) celebrated National Philanthropy Day November 15 at a luncheon at the Renaissance in Asheville.

Dolly and Rakesh Agarwal, from Hendersonville, were honored for their outstanding philanthropic work.

“Many people have means,” explained Rakesh. “God has guided us to make these gifts. We are blessed.”

Truly an example of giving back, the Agarwals support many charitable organizations in the Hendersonville area. Despite not having a personal experience with cancer, they are major contributors to the Pardee Cancer Center. They also support Four Seasons Compassion for Life and the Flat Rock Playhouse with their financial pledges. They have also personally delivered thousands of flowers to people in assisted living and nursing facilities. “We were not taught to give back in India, but America taught us to give back. No other place on earth is as giving and teaches volunteer work like this country.”
The generosity of the Hendersonville community helped their family when they arrived here 31 years ago with a two-year old daughter, $20 and the promise of a job, making barely enough to make ends meet. The level of community generosity “stuck” with Dolly and Rakesh and they, in turn, continue to support the community that gave so much to them.
