The year 2001 in review


September 29, 2001
“Creativity for a Cause.” Surbahaar is an organization of students and professionals based in the NYC/NJ area. This non profit group channels the creative output of its members to raise money for social organizations.


Dear Asha patron,

Given the recent tragic events that took place around the nation, we at Asha Stanford are compelled to cancel the “Surbahaar” event, which was to be held on September 29, 2001 at Memorial Auditorium, Stanford University.
As you may or may not be aware, the “Surbahaar” entertainment group is based in New York. The recent tragedies that occurred in New York and in Washington DC have led to several sudden changes in everyone’s lives, and even more so for people in the New York area.
We, at Asha Stanford, truly thank you for being consistent patrons of Asha’s cause and its fund-raising events. Asha Stanford’s long term commitment to continue with fund-raising to help sponsor education projects for India’s underprivileged children in unwavering.
We hope that you will continue to support our cause and our activities in the future.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. If you have any questions regarding the cancellation of this event or need a refund, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Treasurer, Asha Stanford
