Since 2014 the organisation has been working with and providing funds to support charities, helping create a better life for those who need it most.

A touching presentation was shared on the night by Dr. Parmjit Singh on behalf of COCAG, outlining the support, which has been provided to the needy with the networking of the above-mentioned charities since 2014.
During the night guests were warmly welcomed by the COCAG team and everyone received a memorable gift as a token of appreciation for their support. Raffle tickets, awards and some collectable items were up for grab through an auction process. Auction items were generously donated by International Cricket Player, Gurinder Singh Sandhu. Other items donated included a bat signed by Chris Gayle provided by Mr Ajay Raj, a Sherwani by HR Designs (clothing brand), a Stall by JASH’N (clothing brand), a vase by Mr. Faisal Rehman of Safari Homes and a painting by Dr. Sukhwinder Singh Saggu.
Due to the endless efforts and support from the whole team, COCAG ended up with a memorable and beyond expectation get together. Hardworking volunteers put in their best efforts and raised over $32,000 from the event.
There were a few lucky draw prizes donated by Mrs. Kanwaljeet Kaur (2 x $50 massage vouchers), a communication kit by Mr. Rajiv Talwar of M Star and two tickets for Gulzar show by Mr. Arun Nanda of Hearts & Souls. Safari Homes, BuildStar, Sydney Frames & Trusses and Descon Design each donated raffle ticket prizes of $100 cash prize, which became a point of attraction to the audience. Lucky draw prizes were also donated by Kuber Vaults and presented on the spot by the director of the company herself, Mrs Reena Jethi.
The whole evening was full of entertainment activities such as Gidda, Bhangra among others.
“A massive thanks on behalf of COCAG goes to S Ranjit Singh Khera who made everyone feel welcome, entertained and managed the whole evening so effortlessly,” Parmjit Singh one of the members of COCAG said.
Singh further added, “As a take home message, COCAG would like to request all young members of the community to come forward and encourages them to lead the organisation. This was shown by Shivendra Singh who volunteered to set up a website for COCAG to show his support.This effort just goes to show that, ‘What we do for ourselves dies with us, and what we do for others remains immortal’ and to do our selfless service to prove Ek Pita Ekaske Hum Barik.”
Anyone and everyone is welcome to be a part of this small yet active and growing group.
