Saaral with Vidyasagar
Sequoia High School
Redwood City, CA 94062

Cancer Institute Foundation’s annual fundraiser Saaral Tamil Music show was a grand success. Bharati Tamil Sangam was our gracious co-hosts this year also. We also partnered with Kurinji Tamil Manram this year. Our special guest this years was The Melody King, music director Vidyasagar. He enthralled the audience with his anecdotes and also by live composing a song on the stage.

Thanks also to embedUR for hosting a fundraising dinner with Vidyasagar on Nov 5. Funds raised from both events will help set up corpus fund for the operation of Cancer Screening Centers in Pudukkottai, Thiruvannamali and Sivagangai districts.
