The Raj & Rajeshwari Foundation, which is run by the politically connected restaurateur Harendra Singh and his family, hosted lavish fundraising galas each year that attracted Long Island politicians, judges, union officials, government contractors and other local leaders.

Some supported the foundation by spending between $175 to $5,000 on tickets or sponsorships for the annual dinner, held at the Woodlands at Woodbury. Others also lent their names, and the credibility of their positions, to help raise money for the foundation, which funded a hospital in an impoverished village in Uttar Pradesh, India. Nassau County Executive Edward Mangano, Oyster Bay Town Attorney Leonard Genova and acting Nassau Police Commissioner Thomas Krumpter were among the elected and appointed officials who made emotional video testimonials in which they asked for donations on the foundation's behalf.
