After the conclusion of the fashion show the audience gave all the participants a rousing ovation. There was a brief break in the programme for dinner.

After dinner the program resumed with the raffle, repeated this year by popular demand. Organizers Sundari Josyula and Anu Choudhury conducted the raffle, while the audience waited eagerly to see who were the winners.

This year the raffle featured over 30 prizes, in the form of gift certificates, vouchers or coupons offered by Evergreen Desi member businesses and vendors. Participating vendors who offered giveaways and freebies to the raffle prize winners included the India Junction and SpiceWorld grocery stores, the Peacock India restaurant, Lilly's Beauty World, the JP Beauty Salon, Sakhi Beauty Parlour, and the IMC6 theatre group. We thank these businesses for their generosity and community spirit.

The event concluded with general dancing to popular Bollywood remixes and hit songs.
