The Murali Masterclass on October 2, 2012
Muttiah Muralidaran needs no introduction! The legendary cricketer, named by Wisden as the greatest ever Test bowler, is a tireless champion for the underprivileged in Sri Lanka through his Foundation of Goodness charity. As part of his fundraising efforts, he will host six fans at his favourite hunting ground, the Singhalese Sports Club, to a unique, unforgettable experience, including a spin bowling master class, a net session, and lunch.
Priced at $1950 per person, Murali’s fees for the event will be donated to the Foundation of Goodness, a charity committed to empowering underprivileged rural communities in Sri Lanka.
Charity Experiences with Mahela Jayawardene and Kumar Sangakkara
Sri Lanka’s cricket Captain and former captain are best of friends on and off the field. While they’re more famous for their cricketing partnerships, they’re partners in business and in philanthropy. As part of their fund raising efforts towards the Mahela Foundation - a grassroots cricket charity committed to the development of sport in underprivileged areas of Sri Lanka - the pair will host two unique events on the sidelines of the T20 World Cup in Colombo.
Dine for Charity on October 2, 2012
Mahela and Kumar have recently opened a celebrity restaurant, the Ministry of Crab, together with award-winning chef Dharshan Munidasa, owner of Sri Lanka’s premier chain of Japanese restaurants, Nihonbashi. This experience is a chance for fans to spend an evening of camaraderie, good-humoured debate and discussion about life and cricket with two of the most intelligent, erudite, and humble sports stars around.
Priced at $1950 per person, this exclusive experience, limited to only ten guests, starts off with private cocktails and canapés at Nihonbashi’s main restaurant, followed by an exclusive dinner at Ministry of Crab.
Golf for Charity on September 24, 2012
Mahela Jayawarene, an avowed golf fanatic, has challenged his good friend Kumar Sangakkara, to a competitive round of golf at the picturesque Victoria Golf Club in Digana, Kandy. As part of their fundraising efforts, both players are offering three places each on their respective teams to the members of public.
This fabulous experience, priced at $4950 per person also includes a round trip flight from Colombo on Sri Lankan Airtaxi, all equipment, and an intimate lunch at the clubhouse with the two cricketing greats.
Mahela and Kumar will donate their fees for both events towards the building of a new cricket facility at a selected school based in the war-affected North East. They passionately believe that this will not only help the development of untapped cricketing talent but also promote community-building and foster friendships during an important period of national reconciliation and development after the island’s 30-year conflict.
