Bhirud points out the ability to attend arts events and to take advanced-placement course options as among the advantages offered in Charleston that have served children in the Indian community so well. "Our children say to us, 'Mom, we never missed out on anything!'"
This year, 100 percent of the profits from "Bollywood Night" will be donated to the West Virginia chapter of Susan G. Komen for the Cure because one of the organizers recently lost a family member to breast cancer. In previous years, the "Bollywood Night" committee donated all proceeds to the Charleston YWCA domestic violence prevention programs. Bhirud says the organizing committee is open to considering requests from any local charity for support.
Tickets for "Bollywood Night" are 100 percent tax deductible and may be purchased online from Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
