‘Snowflake’ Persuades Stars to Shine Brightly

Pressbox (Press Release) -
Four enterprising youngsters from Birmingham have pooled their resources to try and help those less fortunate than themselves. Amit Mavadia, Simon Berik, Selina Soma and Jitinder Bassi decided earlier this year to set themselves the goal of raising at least five thousand pounds for charity.
The annual “Diwali Concert and Asian Arts Festival” at King Edwards VI Five Ways School triggered the imagination of four imaginative students to try and up the stakes. Every year, the Diwali Concert has raised in excess of £700 for a chosen charity. However, this year the four students decided to break away from the school’s concert and venture into organising their own charity event, originally aimed to raise funds for the National Autistic Society.
After months of organisation, the promoters of the event were distraught to hear about the tragedy that had taken place in Pakistan. The Asian earthquake has killed over 79,000 people, and injured many more. The cause set to receive the funds from the event was instantaneously split between the NAS and the recent catastrophe, in the hope that any money raised would help people who are experiencing the worst time of their lives.
The result of this spontaneous decision comes in the form of a dinner and dance, on 11th November 2005, at one of the finest banqueting suites in Birmingham. Initially funded by a personal donation from a teacher at KEFW, the project was underway and soon gained momentum with top acts from all over the Midlands offering to join in. Second City Suite is within walking distance from the city centre and boasts a huge 780 guest capacity. As well as a full three-course Indian meal, guests will be greeted by a champagne reception, and be entertained throughout the night by some of the UK’s top Bhangra artists, and live dancers. The event will be hosted by BBC Asian Network’s Adil Ray and will include performances from the likes of Jassi Sidhu, Master Rakesh, FOAK, and many more.
This is the first of a number of events planned by the promoters. With ticket sales increasing, Diffusion promises to be an ecstatic event to be enjoyed by all of the family, who have the knowledge that they will be helping a very worthwhile cause.
Tickets are on sale now priced £20 in advance, and £25 on the door. For more details call 07868 660 148/07813 086 989, Second City Suite 0121 666 7610 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
