The leading singles organizations of the Bay Area are co-sponsoring The 5th Annual Singles Charity Ball, Friday, May 13, 2011, 8pm-Midnight, at the Westin St Francis Hotel on Union Square, California Ballroom, 335 Powell Street, San Francisco CA 94102. 100% of the donations will go directly to the Sight Project of The Seva Foundation, located in Berkeley.

“It will be a Lucky Friday the 13th for over two hundred blind people,” says Rich Gosse, Producer of the event, “if we raise as much as we have in past years at this annual fundraiser. Every $50 we raise will enable Seva to perform a sight-restoring eye surgery in the poorer countries of the world, such as India, Nepal, Tibet, Cambodia, and East Africa. Eye surgeries in the USA typically cost thousands of dollars, but are now being performed for only $50 in the Third World, due to innovations created by Seva. More information is available at www.Seva.org.

"Last year’s Singles Charity Ball at the Westin St Francis, raised $13,150,” says Mr. Gosse, “which enabled The Seva Foundation to restore sight to almost 263 blind people. “Due to the deep recession, our charities are in crisis. People just aren't giving enough. We are hopeful that our singles will make up for this shortfall by attending the Singles Charity Ball in large numbers. All of us are donating our time promoting and running this event, so that all of the money raised can go to charity.”

A donation of $20 at the door is requested, which is tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law. The Ball features dancing to today's hottest hits and the greatest songs of yesteryear. Adults of all ages are welcome. Everyone is encouraged to dress in their finest for this elegant soiree!

The Ball is co-sponsored by Society of Single Professionals, Singles Supper Club, Wine Socials, BayAreaSingles.com, Its Just Lunch, Heart IQ, Singles2Couples, MatchYourKey, EveryCircle, and many other major singles organizations in the Bay Area.
