Due to the coronavirus pandemic, Easterseals has shifted the 14th Annual Passage to India to a virtual event filled with live music, exciting performances and authentic Indian cuisine.

Stream Easterseals Central Illinois’ 14th Annual Passage to India: A Cultural Feast at Home live on Fri., Aug. 28 at 7 p.m. Passage to India is widely recognized as a premier cultural event in Central Illinois, and this year’s virtual approach will provide guests with an authentic and unique cultural experience from the comforts of their own home, with all proceeds benefitting Easterseals Central Illinois.

For the past 14 years, Passage to India has promoted greater awareness and fostered appreciation of the rich cultural diversity in our community, while simultaneously helped to advance the important work of Easterseals. This year’s Passage to India theme is “A Cultural Feast at Home” – a remarkable opportunity for all to experience the colors, flavors, and sounds of India, virtually.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic and subsequent stay-at-home order, Easterseals has face significant financial challenges. All money raised through this event will directly benefit children and families in our community, and ensure that Easterseals can remain dedicated to its mission of all children being 100% Included, 100% Empowered.

During the program, participants will enjoy Indian Classical Music from three instruments - the Sitar, Veena and Tabla.
