To raise funds for the Cancer Council NSW, Kalaa 4 charity is organising one of Sydney’s biggest Bollywood fundraiser on March 15th.

With the theme, ‘A Night to Remember’, this fundraiser event has a Bollywood signature and will showcase the journey of Indian cinema in the last 100 years at ‘The Greenhalgh Theatre’, Lindfield.

Kalaa (Arts) 4 Charity is a not for profit community group formed to bring together people in the community, harness different cultures and to provide them opportunities to express themselves through art and raise funds for charities.

Since its inception, Kalaa 4 charity organisation has been engaged in various social activities including organising fundraisers, promoting local talent, helping community and raising awareness on various issues.

Sidharath Jain, Co-founder of this group while informing about the fundraiser said, “This mega event is Sydney’s biggest Bollywood fundraiser for Cancer Council NSW. This organisation started off as an idea from 2 people (Sidharath Jain and Rishabh Satsangi) but quickly turned into an organising team of 4 (including Amrita Lodhia and Aanchal Chaturvedi) who will, on the 15th of March 2014, bring 135 dedicated and motivated performers showcasing 100 years of Bollywood and we are expecting more than 800 people in this event”.

“As we are a young community group, we are facing hurdles in getting sponsorship to support our event financially. We have received some sponsorship (Telstra, Dal Bukhara, Ispirit and Hanson etc.) but at this stage it is not enough to pay for our expenses to put this show together, so we want that people and businesses should come forward and support this noble and genuine cause”, he added.

“Cabinet Members representing the Premier of NSW, Hon. Barry O’Farrell, Members of Consulate General of India office, Members of Parliament and other VIP public figures of Sydney are lending support to the event. The Premier himself financially supported by contributing to this great cause”, said Sidharath.

“Many local Indian community leaders including Bhupinder Chhibber, President – GOPIO, Rahul Jethi, Branch Manager, Bank of Queensland, Dilip Chopra, ex-councillor, Hornsby, Rohitas Batta, Ministerial Consultative Committee (Indian) Member, Yadu Singh, Cardiologist and Balbir Singh, comfort DelGro Cabcharge are also supporting this fundraiser”, he added.

“We want more community people to come forward and support this fundraiser as all proceeds from this will go to Cancer Council NSW”.

“Cancer Council NSW receives no government funding, relying solely on the dedication and generosity of organisations such as Kalaa 4 Charity to be able to fund cancer research projects and support services for anyone affected by all the different types of cancer”, said Crystal Hyunh, Cancer Council NSW Community Relations Coordinator.
