AASAI Projects Benefit Concert
AASAI hosted a projects benefit concert on October 31st. The event was successful on many fronts; it was an excellent concert, performed by our local artists who donated their time and talent for the event.
Vishnu Kannabiran, the vocalist, was superb not only in his talent for singing, but also in his kindness and generosity to help AASAI causes in the future. Mali was generous with the timely support and help with his own sound system, in addition to his superb support playing Mridhangam. Vinay who played so well on violin encouraged AASAI to be more pro-active in sharing greater details of the AASAI projects. Natarajan, in addition to his support on Kanjira, also introduced AASAI to one of the members of Harvard School od Public Administration and encouraged AASAI to conduct their programs at the Harvard School of Public Administration to gain greater visibility. Divya gave the much needed helping hand and has also offered to help AASAI projects in India.
AASAI thanks you for your support by attending the function and donating towards the fund raising. AASAI was very happy with the funds raised and for your words of encouragement for the work that they are doing. The dinner cooked by volunteers was greatly appreciated and that also contributed towards raising funds. It was nice to see many of you linger to chat after the event, in the spirit of our "Care and Share".
Many of you expressed interest in supporting specific projects and visiting some of them on your next trip to India. For further information, visit www.aasai.org.
