Sidelines TV Filming Live at India Night This Thursday!

Written by: Emily Riden

Wellington, FL – March 11, 2014 – Guests at this Thursday’s India Night could get their 15 minutes of fame thanks to Sidelines TV. The online television channel will be filming a segment at the inaugural event to be held Thursday, March 13, 2014 at the International Polo Club Palm Beach (IPC).

India Night kicks off with an open bar, Indian cuisine, live music and Bollywood dancers at 7 p.m. at the 7th Chukker Restaurant and Veranda at IPC. 

All proceeds from the night go to benefit the Salvation Tree School, a school that has already had a phenomenal, positive impact on the lives of children in India. The school is supported by the Salvation Tree Foundation, a recognized non-profit founded by Wellington, FL residents Timmy and Laurie Sharma and funded through a percentage of the sales of popular equestrian brands TuffRider, Equine Couture and Henri De Rivel. Through the foundation and the Salvation Tree School, the three brands are able to provide the children of their employees in India with an entirely free education, including books, supplies, mid-day meals, transportation and uniforms unlike anything they could otherwise receive.

The education that the children receive through the Salvation Tree School is unlike anything that would otherwise be possible. Now the importance of that education is taking center stage at India Night in Wellington, FL – and around the world, thanks to Sidelines TV.

When the idea of India Night was announced, the meaning and charity behind the event caught the attention of Sidelines TV producer Robert Jordan.

“It is really nice to be able to communicate with the Sidelines audience, many of whom will never come close to the equestrian wonder that is Wellington, that horse lovers here, like everywhere, are a very generous and caring lot,” Jordan commented.

Joining Jordan in the filming and production of India Night coverage is Manohardeep Singh Josan. Singh Josan was born and raised in the Punjab region of India, and he has since gone on to earn his Ph.D. from the University of Florida. In addition to working as a soil and water scientist, Singh Josan is actively working to dispel negative stereotypes about India and its culture.

“We hope to produce a piece in the Hindi language to reach native speakers worldwide and bring awareness to what a wonderful thing the Sharmas are doing,” Jordan said.
