Easter Seals wants to show people Indian culture-- all while raising money for the services they provide for children with disabilities.

"It's just great to bring together the two cultures, because the Asian-Indian community is a large part of our Central Illinois community," said Co-Chairperson Brian May. "It's just a great way to bring the two cultures together."

Easter Seals hopes to raise 400,000 dollars at this year's event.
