Bollywood, Cocktails and a Way to Help the Children of Tucson

This sounds like a fun and tasty event.

Angel Charity for Children has been a key player in helping raise monies for improving the lives of children in Tucson for decades. To date, they have helped over one million children have better lives.

Their upcoming event should prove to be another great evening of food and drink all in the name of making Tucson a better place for kids.

Longtime Angel Charity member Neelam Sethi and her husband Dr. Gulshan Sethi have offered to underwrite an Indian themed cocktail party at the Tucson Children’s Museum on Monday April 17th. The cocktail party will take place before the showing of Taj Express, a Bollywood dance romance film at the Fox Theater.

*Saffron Indian Bistro will provide several traditional Indian dishes.

*The Owl’s Club will serve a cocktail specially created for the evening.

*Hub Restaurant will serve a new signature ice cream “Queen Bee” created specifically in honor of the late Kelsey Luria (when sold at the restaurant a portion of the proceeds will benefit the Bald Beauty Foundation in her memory).

*There will also be a traditional Chaat cart (a popular type of Indian street food).

*Beer, wine and soda will also be available.

*Dessert will be offered following the show at the theatre, with Casino del Sol providing dessert, and New Delhi Palace providing hot Indian Chai.

The cocktail party will begin at 5:30pm, with guests being shuttled from the Fox Theatre and back by downtown Tucson’s latest transport entity WildCarts.   The show at the Fox begins at 7:30pm.

Organizers hope to raise $50,000 from this party.  An anonymous donor has already pledged matching funds up to $25,000, and a group of supporters from the Indian community has pledged $10,000.  Cost to attend the pre-show party is a minimum donation of $100 per person – made payable directly to Angel Charity.
