    Hello. The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust is producing INDIA IN FOCUS this fall, a six-week showcase of contemporary and classic performing and visual art (music, theater, dance, visual art, etc.) from India. The event kicks off on Friday, September 25 and runs through November 8 in the Cultural District downtown. More details are at TrustArts.org/India.

    I’m wondering if there’s an opportunity to spread the word at your event and online. I appreciate your thoughts and look forward to the chance to work with you!

    Thanks,

    Who is in the team and what are their names and roles? Who is leading the effort. What is the team structure. How much did we collect and what are the expenses and how much did we donate. I guess these details will help to keep the effort transparent and improves the confidence the team. Also gives due recognition to the hard work you guys are putting into it.
    I hope you guys agree.

    Hi,
    I noticed less number people participated in the race, may be you can consider giving Medals or Certifiates to attract more people.

    Try to include our Tri-Color on T Shirt so everyone will wear for sure,
    Again these are my suggestions.
