Submitted By Induz
Induz's "Laser Dandiya 2012" fundraiser, held October 6 to raise funds for arts programs, was sold-out with attendance in excess of 1,200 people. Assistance has been expanded to include 30 Bay Area schools in the 2012 school year and continue the Tulika program which provides free art, music, and dance education for underprivileged children at orphanages in India.
Volunteer Niharika Srivastava said, "It was so much fun. Volunteers did their best to provide a memorable experience." Anu Natarajan, Vice Mayor for the City of Fremont, congratulated the Induz team for the success of the event and the work that they are doing for underprivileged children in India and the Bay Area. She presented a Proclamation on behalf of the City of Fremont to Induz Founder and President, Ray Mitra. Jose Esteves, Mayor of the City of Milpitas, also presented a Proclamation recognizing the contribution of Induz. A representative from the Office of Senator Ellen Corbett presented Induz a certificate of appreciation for the positive impact Induz is making in the local community.
Induz founder Ray Mitra said, "I would like to thank all our sponsors, supporters and media partners, without whom such a large community event cannot be successful." A special thanks was sent to young volunteers Neha Krishna, Shailja Sarin, Rhea Mitra and Anish under the lead of Dhaval Shah.
