ABOUT THE CHAUDHURI DINNER
On April 26, 2014, California Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS) hosted its Twelfth Annual Haridas and Bina Chaudhuri Dinner Celebration at the Crowne Plaza Cabana Hotel in Palo Alto.
This year, CIIS presented the 2014 Haridas and Bina Chaudhuri Award for Distinguished Service to global philanthropist and Silicon Valley entrepreneur Lata Krishnan.
