Singles Charity Ball to Cure 200 Blind People
The leading singles organizations of the San Francisco Bay Area co-sponsor their annual fundraiser for The Seva Foundation, July 28, 2012.
The leading singles organizations of the Bay Area are co-sponsoring The 6th Annual Singles Charity Ball, Saturday, July 28, 2012, 8pm-Midnight, at the Westin St Francis Hotel on Union Square, California Ballroom, 335 Powell Street, San Francisco CA 94102. 100% of the donations will go directly to the Sight Project of The Seva Foundation, located in Berkeley, CA.
Seva specializes in curing blindness by performing low-cost cataract eye surgeries in the poorer countries of the world, such as India, Nepal, Tibet, Cambodia, and East Africa. Eye surgeries in the USA typically cost thousands of dollars, but are now being performed for only $50 in the Third World, due to innovations created by Seva. This year's goal is to raise $10,000, which will finance 200 eyes surgeries. More information about Seva is available at http://www.Seva.org.
"Due to the bad economy, our charities are in crisis," says Rich Gosse, Chairman of The Society of Single Professionals, and organizer of the Ball. "People just aren't giving enough. We are hopeful that our singles will make up for this shortfall by attending the Singles Charity Ball in large numbers. All of us are donating our time promoting and running this event, so that all of the money raised can go to charity."
A donation of $20 is requested, which is tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law. The Ball features dancing to today's hottest hits and the greatest songs of yesteryear. Adults of all ages are welcome. Everyone is encouraged to dress in their finest for this elegant soiree!
The Ball is co-sponsored by The Society of Single Professionals, the world's largest non-profit singles organization;
