India Canada Association of Waterloo Region (ICA) proudly presents to you its annual musical show to raise funds for a local Charity. The event, "Geeton Bhari Shaam" will take place on Saturday, April 30, 2016 at the Romanian Cultural Centre (Banatul) located at 2150 Bleams Road, Kitchener, ON, N2E 3Y1 from 3:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
This year, the Board has opted to support OneROOF YOUTH SERVICES, an organization providing "safety, support and overall well-being of youths" who are homeless or at risk, aged 12-25, in Waterloo Region. Last year, through this event and the generosity of our supporters, ICA was able to donate $1,350.00 to Kids Ability, being net proceeds plus donations. See poster above.
This year, we have a venue with a stage and good acoustics and equipment to ensure the success of this event.
We have worked extremely hard to rope in PUSHPINDER SINGH RANA, a singer, who has enthralled many with his talent (https://plus.google.com/103433230055972079378/posts) and AMI GANDHI SHARMA, whose love of music and talent is enthralling.
