Benefit show for New Light India Sept. 19 in New York City

Ben will headline a Sept. 19 fundraiser for the nonprofit New Light India at the New York Society for Ethical Culture. "An Acoustic Evening with Ben Harper" benefits the organization's community development of the "Boys Home Project" based in Kalighat, India. The Force Film Foundation is producing the event through partnership with the nonprofit, Lend Your Hands.

Founded in 2000 by Urmi Basu, New Light India provides shelter, educational opportunities, recreational facilities, healthcare and legal aid for the girls and women in Kalighat, notorious for its red light district.

Said Harper, "New Light has been doing incredible work for years protecting and educating young girls that are vulnerable to sexual exploitation. They have recently expanded their mission to serve young boys who are also at risk of perpetuating this terrible epidemic or becoming victims themselves."
