Drumroll Please…You did it!!

Published by:

Happy Friday Everyone !!

After Dance for Charity on Saturday, Feb 28th, we took a few days to relax and reflect. With so many things going on, it’s hard to keep up sometimes but we wouldn’t let more days pass by without reaching out to you. After all it was all of you who made it a night to remember!!

With more than 200 friends who gathered to celebrate our 5th annual fundraiser, “Dance for Charity” this year was an amazing success. We stand in awe of the generous support that we received from our sponsors and attendees. Drum roll please….a whopping $40,000 was raised at this event!! To everyone that came, thank you for making this night so special. Thank you for believing in us and being supportive of our work. It is your generosity and belief in our mission that enables us to perform this work, and we are deeply grateful for it. You have made a real difference in the lives of the kids we serve by giving them a hope for future.

Once again, thank you to everyone…to those who took months to put this together, the sponsors, volunteers, and most importantly all who came and gave their support to our small charity. If you have any suggestions for us, please feel free to reach out to us at info@aaictrust.org. We would love to hear from you.

We look forward to sharing more updates with you in our quarterly newsletter. Meanwhile, visit our Facebook page for more highlights from the night!

There is Still Time Before the New Year!

Published by:

Dear Supporter,

It’s been a while since you heard from us. We’ve quietly been working behind the scene with sponsors to build something like Target house in Delhi, India for the children and their families. This will allow each family to have a private space and maintain a comforting family routine while trying to reduce the stress of treatment. We have temporarily hit a road block but despite the challenge we are positive and plan to keep trying to build such a place. Since 2009 we have provided treatment for around 12 kids. We hope to double the number of children treated every year. We wouldn’t have been able to do this without the help of all of you who have supported us as we work to achieve our dreams. So from all of us to you, thank you!

This holiday season, as you spend time with your loved ones and reflect on all the wonderful moments of the past year, we hope you will take the time to reflect on the pain and suffering of these children with cancer.

Please consider making difference in the lives of these children and their families. At year-end, your special gift will give us a significant boosts as we close out the year and set our course for 2015. If this is possible for you, we would appreciate you remembering AAICT for the contribution. Every gift is appreciated and every gift however big or small makes a difference.

Fusion – East Meets West 2014

Published by:

An evening to relax and unwind with non-stop laughter with Rajiv Satyal. Rajiv’s witty, universal and TV-clean act resonates around the world by covering everything from racial issues to soap bottles to his favorite topic – himself. He has performed everywhere from Boston to Bangalore and has been featured in The Wall Street Journal and LA times and opened for Russell Peters, Dave Chappelle, Kevin Nealon, Tim Allen, and Daniel Tosh in theaters across USA.

Also presenting entertaining music by Singer Falu Shah, internationally recognized for her rare ability to seamlessly blend modern inventive style with a formidable Indian classically-shaped vocal talent. Falguni (aka Falu) studied under legendary sarang/vocal master Ustad Sultan Khan. Falu’s subsequent career in the States had led to a series of brilliant and high profile collaborations with Yo-Yo Ma, Wyclef jean, Philip Glass, Ricky Martin, Blues Traveler and A. R. Rahman amongst others. She was appointed Carnegie Halls ambassador of Indian Music in 2006. One of Falu’s most astonishing performances occurred alongside A.R. Rahman for President Obama and the First Lady Michelle Obama at the White House for their First State dinner in Nov 2009.

Falu’s band of the same name includes musicians who draw from Indian classical, alternative rock, contemporary pop, and electronic styles to create a mix of East and West – one reason why The New York Times featured Falu in a story titled “Bridging Cultural Gaps with Music.

Sandeep Swadia, a protege of Zakir Hussein will accompany Falu during the concert.

Tickets are $40.00 for platinum seating and $20 for general seating.
