Maya Jadoo to perform in aid of tsunami victims

Press Release - For favour of publication

Bangalore: December 31, 2004.

The Magic and Allied Arts Development & Research Institute (MAADRI) announced today that Maya Jadoo - The Mega Magic Show will be flagging off its campaign to raise funds for the victims and families of the December 26 earthquake and tsunami that has claimed more than 90,000 lives worldwide.

The first in the series of shows will be hosted at the Town Hall in Udupi at 5 PM on Saturday January 1, 2005. "What better way to spend the first day of the new year than by contributing to a worthy cause," asks the Executive Director of MAADRI, Magician Prahlad Acharya.

The second show in this series would be held at Bangalore on Sunday, January 2. The magic show starts at 5PM and is being hosted at the Udaya School Grounds, near the Vijayanagar bus stand.

"The entry to these shows would be free, and contributions are voluntary. The idea is to encourage the people who come to these shows to contribute generously to this noble cause," adds Prahlad.

"The success of these campaigns lies in the fact that the government of Karnataka utilised the services of MAADRI to propagate its Navachethana Social Welfare Schemes," says Magician Nakul Shenoy, the founder-secretary of MAADRI. The proceeds of these shows would be donated in entirety to the Prime Minister's National Relief Fund.

MAADRI, through Maya Jadoo, has always been engaged in social causes, be it conducting several shows all over Karnataka state to raise funds for the Gujarat Earthquake Relief Fund, or social awareness campaigns like AIDS Awareness Programme, Vande Mataram - the National Integration Drive, Election Awareness Programme, and Pulse Polio Campaign.

For more information about the shows, please contact Nakul Shenoy at 98441 30613.
