A message from Sankara Eye Foundation, a well-loved charity that is bringing singing queen Shreya Ghoshal to San Jose State University on August 23:

Your entertainment will help someone’s dreams come true as they get their eyesight restored. Widely admired for her angelic vocal cords, Shreya Ghoshal has reigned supreme in Bollywood for many years. Winning ZeeTV’s music contest Sa Re Ga Ma Pa gave Shreya the kickstart she needed to start her singing career in Bollywood. Shreya’s first Bollywood break came with the song Bairi Piya, from Devdas, which won her the National Film and the Filmfare award for best playback singer (Female). 

Having won over 130 prestigious awards with four National Film Awards, fifteen Filmfare Awards, nine IIFA Awards, and many others, she is ready to rock and set the stage ablaze at the beautiful San Jose Event Center. Brought to you by Sankara Eye Foundation, Shreya Ghoshal live, a concert for a cause that will help bring the precious gift of sight to the poor visually impaired in India. Do not miss the opportunity to experience this musical extravaganza.

Established in the Bay Area, SEF is a non-profit organization that has been working for the past twenty years for the cause of eradicating curable blindness in India. Driven by the truly inspirational cause, SEF has currently established nine community hospitals and soon embarking on four new hospital projects. By far the most unique and remarkable characteristic of SEF is that they provide free eye care for those unable to afford it, those members of the rural poor, and this accounts for 80 percent — which is approximately 200,000 people per year — of the surgeries performed at their hospitals. The tireless efforts by the SEF team since inception, has enabled more than 2 million eyes to receive the gift of vision, utterly free of cost. Also, it has maintained the top rating from Charity Navigator for sound fiscal management for seven years.

SEF will focus its fundraising activities for three new projects, Focus Mumbai, Focus Hyderabad and Focus Indore. Become a Founding Donor and leave a legacy –- get your name on the Wall of Founders. Double the impact of your gift with company matching. Join our cause, volunteer and share in the joy of bringing light to someone’s eyes.
