Bhadresh Acharya: (631) 946-4789


Hello, my name is Bhadresh Acharya and I am currently the Vice President of LIGCS. I reside in Dix Hills and have one son and one daughter. I am working at the Brentwood Pharmacy and have been there for more than twenty years. During my free time I enjoy watching cricket, including IPL as well as World Cup matches. I am involved in LIGCS because I think it is important to keep our Gujarati culture alive in America. If we continue to celebrate our culture, than the future generations will not forget where they came from and will continue to do the same. LIGCS unites all Gujarati immigrants and their kids and brings them together to keep traditions
