Dear Sir/Madam,

Sub: Inviting your good self to participate in Fortis- “COLOROTHON”-Season2-(A BREATHE Entertainment Concept) Draw your imagination to celebrate World HEART Day.

Greetings from the Residents, Staff, Volunteers and Management of Omashram Trust – Old Age Care-Bangalore
We are pleased to inform you that we have partnered with Fortis Healthcare to host COLOROTHON 2014 Season 2(A BREATHE Entertainment Concept) in Aid of Omashram Trust – Old Age Care to mark World Heart Day, 28th September 2014, Sunday @ TBS Park Whitefield. Timings-9am onwards.
Over 10,000 people of all age groups (5 yrs onwards) are expected to draw/paint at the same time on one platform. People from all walks of life across Bangalore are invited to participate.

The Objective of the event is to add a rosy sunset to the lives of the neglected elders. Some Parents are fortunate enough to be under the care of their families… feel & rejoice oneness! What about those who can’t? Let us add color to their colorless lives. It is also an attempt to enter the Limca Book of Records & Guinness Book of World Records – for largest number of people drawing at the same time.

Fortis – COLOROTHON-Season 2, is that one initiative which will try to rekindle the lost joy of drawing & painting in you. Here’s a platform, deftly created for people to pick up those arty tools and colorfully express themselves on paper & draw their imagination along with thousand of fellow art lovers, curators, first time expressionists, artists and art admirers and paint to their heart’s elation!

Since it is not a competition, people need not be worked up about how good they are.. Just come and draw, if not for you then for hundreds of neglected ELDERS at Omashram Trust-Old Age Care, working towards care and succour of the Elderly, that COLOROTHON is supporting… Let us light up their blackened lives, by bringing in solidarity with them. The 200 best paintings chosen by our panelists will be auctioned and the proceeds will go to Omashram Trust.

Hence we humbly request you to personally participate and also send your respective students, employees & members to come and show solidarity by participating in this initiative, sharing their energy and valuable time and support to make Colorothon more meaningful and resourceful.

Colorothon is not just a drawing event, It is a wholesome carnival to promote Art & Culture that includes Art Bazaar, cartoon characters, street magic shows, drum circle, caricatures, comedy shows, live band performances, cartoonists and much more colorful ambience to entertain you.
Looking forward to your support to make Colorothon a successful & a Unique Property.(Twice a Year – Republic Day & World Heart Day)

Ideas are commodity. Execution is not!
We all have ideas, Ideas that have the potential to change our lives. But as Michael Dell said successful execution is what transforms an idea into a company. Here’s inviting all the budding entrepreneurs to question those who had taken a step ahead on the roads less travelled and had overcome all the hurdles on this road to success. Get insights on the pitfalls from the investors who can point out the best from the rest.

The conclave would be preceded by the Bzzwings shark tank, one of the few of its kind, if not the only one, where two investors would offer to fund one venture each of their choice based on the pitch that the teams would make at the shark tank
