Notes that score
A unique fund-raising event hopes to give back to the society by providing support to critically ill orphans and under-privileged children.
Tonight, the city’s famous live music venue, Blue Frog will have an unusual set on stage. There won’t be ripping guitars and tearing drums, instead men in suits and ties will take to the mic. At CEOs Sing for their Supper, a fund-raising event hosted by Genesis Foundation, 11 head honchos from the corporate world will indulge in singing for a change, literally. “After the success of our initiative in Gurgaon, we thought of bringing it to Mumbai,” says Prema Sagar, Founder Trustee of Genesis Foundation. “Our efforts have saved the lives of 178 children in India so far and we hope to continue working towards this endeavour,” she adds.
Supporting seven critically ill orphans and children from under-privileged families, the musical evening hopes to collect funds to support their recovery from illnesses like cardiac disorders, thalassemia and organ failure. From five-year-old Suresh, who suffers from Thalassemic Major and needs a bone marrow transplant that costs over Rs 12 lakh to 15-year-old Om Prakash who suffers from kidney failure and is awaiting a transplant that’ll cost no less than Rs 4.3 lakh, the event hopes to raise funds to support the treatment of these children, through this animated night.
CEOs Sing for their Supper will be held at Blue Frog, Lower Parel at 8 pm tonight. Donor passes are available from Rs 2,500-7,500 per person.
