|Directing special programs to raise funds for Child abuse victims
was nothing new to Sorcar, who for years now has put together programs
to raise thousands of dollars for charities around the world. Last
year he donated proceeds from his highly successful stage show "Rhythm
of 2001" to the Kempe Children's Foundation as well as
to the Red Cross for the 9/11 victims of New York.
