Senator Anwar to Join ‘A Concert India’ Event at Bushnell Park to Raise Money for COVID-19 Recovery June 4

State Senator Saud Anwar (D-South Windsor) will join volunteers in fundraising efforts June 4 at Bushnell Park from 5 to 7 p.m. for “A Concert for India,” with proceeds to support the South Asian community and help rebuild communities in India following the COVID-19 crisis. Tejal Vallam of Rocky Hill and Ritu Goel of South Windsor will host the event.

The impacts of the COVID-19 crisis have devastated India in recent months, with many communities seeking staggering spread of illness and loss of life. Hundreds of thousands of victims have left behind children and spouses who are struggling to survive.

Goel is working with Give India and United Way Delhi to provide direct aid to India, with funds used to provide vaccines and medical supplies and to support families and workers who continue to struggle. The event will include musical performances from local band Bombay Central and the artist Kashyap Jani. Local families will speak on how the pandemic is impacting their families.

Attendees are asked to bring chairs and blankets as no seating will be provided. Social distancing and mask-wearing are recommended.
