The ceremony included recitation of prayers and homage to the victims by the Sikh leaders of various Gurdwaras (the Sikh temples), university students, SALDEF (Sikh American defense and educational fund) and United Sikhs.

Executives (sevadars) of the KCF and especially Sirdars Gurdip Singh Malik and Surinder Singh were thanked for hosting the event and providing Guru Ka Langar, free meals.
