Sonia Shah Organization: Celebrating Sonia’s Life – A Night of Music
September 16 @ 6:00 am - 11:00 pm$75
Join us for a night of music celebrating the life of our young founder, Sonia Shah, who passed at away at only 18 years of age. Support Sonia Shah Organization as we educate and empower the girls and women of Pakistan and the U.S.: all proceeds go to aid the organization in its vision. At the beautiful Logan Square Auditorium, there will be food, live music, and merriment as we band together to support a cause we all believe in.
Sonia Shah Organization was founded by Chicago teenager, Sonia Shah, before her tragic and untimely death. Sonia’s dream was to educate the girls and women of her ancestral village of Kangra, Pakistan, seeing firsthand the power of education and just how different her life would have been without it. Sonia’s dream is carried on by her mother, Iram Shah, at the Sonia Shah Memorial School in Kangra, Pakistan, where we educate girls and provide their lunches, uniforms, and basic medical care, run a vocational center for women too old for school, and provide clean drinking water for the entire village. In the last year, we have developed a scholarship program, helping inspirational and deserving women complete their educations in the US. We are a small organization with big dreams, and we hope that you’ll stand with us!
