Now dance for a children's cause
New Delhi, Jan 30 : As many as 150 dancers and instructors will come together to dance as a part of an initiative called 'Dance For A Cause'. The proceeds from the sale of tickets will be donated to Sparsh, a project that will help set up the state-of-art Paediatric Dialysis Centre for children.
The event, that will take place Feb 2 at Blue Frog, involves dance workshops, dance performances by troupes and other volunteers. It is an initiative by Rotary Club of Delhi Southend Next.
"This is a unique fundraiser with the involvement of club members, young people and the one that are young at heart. The idea is to dance for 8 hours and pledge or raise funds for Sparsh," Taruna Seth, chairperson of Rotary Club of Delhi Southend Next told IANS.
"It is important to note that only two paediatric dialysis centres exist in India, hence there is an urgent need for this project to be set up and provide medical assistance to children who require dialysis and whose families can't afford it," she added.
Each registered participant or dancer has to pay according to their profile. A dancer has to pay Rs.2,500, students need to pay Rs.1,000 and Fitness First members have to pay Rs.1,500.
Visitors will have to contribute Rs.900. Food and soft beverages will be provided.
