The Columbus Area Arts Council is putting on its annual "UnCommon Cause" event Oct. 26.
Umar Farooq sits on the Arts Council Board of Directors and also serves as a co-chair, along with his wife, Nida, of this year's UnCommon Cause event. UnCommon Cause is the largest annual fundraiser for the Columbus Area Arts Council.
This year's event has a Bollywood theme. Called "Bollywood: The Sites and Sounds of India," this event is a black-tie affair, but you are encouraged to wear Indian-inspired outfits. The Farooqs say the evening is completely Indian-inspired, from the decor to the food.
Farooq says there will be plenty of excitement at this year's event. He specifically mentions the auction, which includes a number of great donated items from local community members and businesses. The most valuable item up for auction that evening will be a trip to India.
A table for eight can be purchased for $1,000. Individual seats cost $125. The reservation deadline is Oct. 18. You can purchase your seats online at www.uncommoncauseauction.org.
