On August 31st, Krystal Kiran (House of Kiran) hosted a party to celebrate her 30th birthday.  But this was a party with a purpose: it was a fundraiser to support the Maple Batalia Memorial Scholarship for the Arts.

The party also featured a screening of Kiran’s five-minuted BravoFACT short film, “Thy Beauty’s Doom – In Memory of Maple Batalia” which recently premiered at the Punjabi International Film Festival.  The film is a dance/art/music film showcasing the paintings and artwork of the late Maple Batalia, a gifted visual artist, actor, model and aspiring doctor who died tragically in an act of senseless violence in 2011.
