Movie Music Monday: An Evening Under the Stars for Sankara Eye Foundation

Film Flam Flummox

The picturesque grounds of a private residence in Malibu was the scene for a special "Evening Under the Stars" of fashion, food, music, dance, and culture benefiting the Sankara Eye Foundation, USA this past Saturday, September 13. SEF, established in 1998, reaches out to the rural poor and provide quality eye care free of cost to the needy by building operationally self-sufficient super specialty eye care hospitals across India, with the ultimate goal being the complete eradication of curable blindness in India. Recently, SEF made possible the one-millionth free eye surgery at the Sankara Eye Care Institutes in India.

Those contributing to the great cause enjoyed a packed program that began with casual sales of jewelry and saris before the first formal portion of the festivities, a poolside fashion show of formal wear by actress, stylist, and designer Rubina Dilaik.

As the program shifted to dinner tables, so did the evening shift to a veritable celebration of Hindi film music and dance, with various dancers, individual and in groups, performing a number of original routines set to Bollywood hits, old and new. A few highlights are below.
