Joes Pub Charitable Event: Our Vision
May 23, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 10:00 pm
Join the Eye Foundation of America for an evening of music by Prasanna in support of its work fighting childhood blindness around the world.
The Eye Foundation of America has worked towards eliminating avoidable blindness for 40 years, especially among children. Alongside our international partners, we’re bringing eye care to those in the greatest need in an affordable, accessible manner.
That’s why we need your help to reach our fundraising goal of $500,000. Event proceeds will support several programs, including: eye screening for premature babies, providing glasses for school children, and developing a new children’s eye hospital that will provide state of the art care for all children, regardless of a family’s ability to pay.
Our musical guest, Prasanna, is a world-renowned guitarist whose repertoire includes Indian carnatic music, jazz, metal, and more. An acclaimed composer for Oscar-winning films like “Smile Pinki,” Prasanna is a longtime co-collaborator with A.R. Rahman on films such as “Lagaan,” continues to record solo and collaborative studio albums, and serves as educator and founder of the Swarnabhoomi Academy of Music.
