The Kasauli Rhythm & Blues Festival is Genesis Foundation’s flagship fund-raiser and its cult status inspired the Foundation to take the format to Goa and host the first Goa Rhythm & Blues Festival last year. Believing strongly that music is a positive and participatory force in the creation of change, the Foundation invites established and upcoming artistes from India’s diverse pool of musical talent to perform in support of the critically ill under-privileged children under its care.
In order to raise awareness and resources to facilitate medical assistance to GF Kids, Genesis Foundation has created unusual and unique participative fundraising events involving music, art and food. Some of these events are Goa Rhythm & Blues Festival, CEOs Cook for GF Kids and Music for Life events, among many others. GF is also the beneficiary of CEO’s Got Talent, produced by FremantleMedia.
