In their final speech, Kalaa 4 Charity’s executive team (Sid, Rishabh, Amrita and Aanchal) thanked everyone who performed, volunteered, supported or attended the show. They also announced that next year they will be back with an even bigger and a better show.

The team also raised awareness about mental illness through weekly Facebook posts titled #wednesdayblues as well as various fundraisers and public appearances. The Kalaa 4 Charity team wants everyone to know that it is ok if someone is suffering from stress, anxiety, depression and other mental illness and that there is help available. They wanted to break the stigma and taboo about mental illness in our community.

Kalaa 4 Charity received applause and compliments from everyone who came to the show. Every spectator, performer and volunteer was thrilled with the quality, professionalism and fluency of the whole event.
