JOIN in the fun when a huge Indian-themed party hits the Hilton Park Bowling Club this month with the Bollywood Extravaganza fundraiser.

Two Bollywood dancing troupes and Fremantle musicians Dilip n the Davs and the Last Five Coins will entertain the crowd while raffles and auctions will be held to help raise funds for the Rural Agency for Social and Technological Advancement.

RASTA is a not-for-profit organisation in India that works towards empowering disadvantaged women and marginalised farmers, as well as preserving South India’s natural environment.

Organiser Cate Williams said she and fellow organiser Ian Butler had volunteered with the organisation last year and were so impressed with the work they did, they wanted to help them out in another way.“Funding to many non-government organisations dried up with the global financial crisis and RASTA is no exception,” she said.

“The organisation has been struggling financially for a few years but wants to develop financial sustainability by setting up a homestay and eco-tour business so they can make money to continue to help the disadvantaged local community.

“The Bollywood Extravaganza will be a really fun night and in the process of having a good time people will be helping a worthwhile cause.”
