Team Pranay invited around 70 children from the slums and also children of the college maintenance staff to celebrate and to experience the true spirit of Christmas. The event started with a cake cutting ceremony by Director sir, Brig. Rajiv Divekar , Pranay Faculty head Dr. Pradnya Chitrao and Dr. Swati Nalawade along with the children. After the cake cutting ceremony there was a quick refreshment made available for the children followed by a drawing competition where the little angels got an opportunity to draw their minds. After the drawing competition there was a movie arranged in the auditorium followed by a dance session. The children thoroughly enjoyed the dance session by dancing their hearts out and were joined by the Pranay Team members as well.
