The Hungarian Cricket Association is running a friendly (softball) tournament to raise funds for Csodalámpa. The Csodalámpa Foundation has been operating for more than 14 years, fulfilling the dreams of over 3,000 seriously ill children so far by granting them wishes. The charity’s mission is to grant 260-300 wishes a year to kids aged 3-18 years old who are suffering from life-threatening illnesses.
Prospective players - experienced cricketers or novices - can sign up as individuals or as teams of 6-8 players. The teams may be rearranged on the day to provide a more even spread of beginners and serious cricketers, with the focus being very much on playing and raising money, not on hard competition.
The HCA suggests a donation of a minimum HUF 2,000 per player - to be collected at the venue on the day.
Friends and family are welcome to participate, either as players or spectators, with food to be provided at the venue by the Kanálgép food truck.
Those wishing to register as players please contact Fanni Cziráky by e-mail by March 1 at the latest.
(There may be some scope for late additions to the playing roster on the day, but there is no need to register for those who simply wish to come along and watch or lend their support.)
Date: Saturday 4th March, 2pm-7pm
Venue: Semmelweis University Sport Center, Zágrábi utca 14, X. Budapest
