BOLLYWOOD FUNDRAISER FOR ANGEL CHARITY

Tucson, Ariz—With the announcement of Angel Charity for Children’s 2017 charities, the work of fundraising has begun. With $600,000 pledged to the Diaper Bank and $100,000 to Beads of Courage, a flurry of fundraising activities have begun to help the 34-year-old philanthropic organization reach their goal.

Longtime Angel Charity member Neelam Sethi and her husband Dr. Gulshan Sethi have pledged to do their part. The philanthropic couple will host a fabulous Indian themed cocktail party at the Children’s Museum Tucson before the Taj Express Bollywood show at the Fox Tucson Theatre on Monday, April 17th.  The Indian feel of the evening will be beautifully created by Design Definitions.

The philanthropic couple is underwriting the event with the help of local restaurants including Saffron Indian Bistro who will provide several traditional Indian dishes.  The Owl’s Club will serve a cocktail specially created for the evening, Hub Restaurant will serve a new signature ice cream “Queen Bee” created specifically in honor of the late Kelsey Luria (when sold at the restaurant a portion of the proceeds will benefit the Bald Beauty Foundation in her memory). There will also be a traditional Chaat cart (a popular type of Indian street food). Beer, wine and soda will also be available.

Dessert will be offered following the show at the theatre, with Casino del Sol providing dessert, and New Delhi Palace providing hot Indian Chai.

The cocktail party will begin at 5:30pm, with guests being shuttled from the Fox Theatre and back by downtown Tucson’s latest transport entity WildCarts.

Organizers hope to raise $50,000 from this party  To date, an anonymous donor has pledged matching funds up to $25,000, and a group of supporters from the Indian community has pledged $10,000.  Cost to attend the pre show party is a minimum donation of $100 per person – made payable directly to Angel Charity at https://events.r20.constantcontact.com/register/eventReg?oeidk=a07edx6aypg707a45c6&oseq=&c=&ch=   To purchase tickets to the show:  http://foxtucson.com/presents/taj-express/  To view a preview of the exciting Taj Express show: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LwpDqFuRxDI
