NOTES:
*****
1. The Prabasi board has been requested multiple times in previous
years by members to get some outstanding artist to perform for our
community.  In response to that, we made a special effort to bring
Abhijeet here all the way from India with his full troupe just to
perform for us for our 25th anniversary and have therefore incurred
a huge cost in doing so.  Since this is a special event, though it
is being held during the Durga puja, we have issued a special
ticketing policy subsidized for members.

2. The original plan was to increase the membership dues by $20
per couple. But we did not want to burden all our members by
increasing membership dues. Instead Prabasi decided to give our
members the choice.  Those who would like to attend the concert
have to pay the extra ticket price and those who prefer not to, are
most welcome to enjoy our puja and other cultural events. The
reason the special event and subsidized ticketing was not
announced earlier was because this show was finalized only at
the end of last week.

Prabasi is a non-profit organization which can only put up
quality shows and programs through member contributions and sometimes
by ticketing special shows.

Thank you.

- Bay Area Prabasi Administration
