Lions Club Greater Youth yesterday organised a charity show in Siliguri. The movie screened was Baahubali 2 in Carnival Cinemas in Savin Kingdom. Both the 3:00 pm and 4:15 pm shows were sold out.
The main sponsors of the event were Hotel Amber and City Gold Masala.
Speaking exclusively to Khabar Samay, Project Chairman Lion Ashmit Saluja said, ” We are overwhelmed to get such a response. We are sponsoring education of under privileged students. These students have been identified by the Siliguri Model high School, our project school, based on their background and history. Most were unable to continue their education due to financial crunch. We will be providing them support till they reach class 10, after which the club shall take a call on the future course of action for these students.
These students have approximate expense of Rs. 20000 per year per student. We have identified two of them and are starting their studies from 1st May. Along with this, eye projects such as eye donation and free cataract surgeries will be taken care of. ”
