Palm Court to donate to charity for every boundary hit or wicket taken by President Ali
For every four or six hit or wicket taken by President Dr. Irfaan Ali at the Kares One Guyana T10 Tapeball Blast on Saturday, Palm Court will financially contribute to charity.
President Ali headlines the ‘Cricket for Charity’ match at the National Stadium as part of the tournament’s grand finale.
For every four and six the President hits, Palm Court will donate G$5,000 and G$10,000 respectively, while the entertainment spot will donate G$25,000 for every wicket he captures.
President Ali, who has a blazing tapeball hundred against members of disciplined services, is expected to lead several government officials on the field to face business community members, all in a noble effort to raise funds for charity.
Minister of Culture, Youth and Sport, Charles Ramson Jr., entertainers Rawle Ferguson and Kerwin Bollers, and cricket stars Ramnaresh Sarwan, Lennox Cush, Devendra Bishoo and Steven Jacobs, along with others are confirmed to play.
President Ali and Cush will captain the teams.
The charity match is scheduled to start at 18:00h, and the organisers have staked G$200,000 for the winning side to donate to Charity.
President Ali, one of the first to support the tournament, noted the event would bring many people together from various communities under the ‘One Guyana’ banner.
Meanwhile, the first semi-final pits the rampant Eccles All-Stars against Team Corruption from 14:00h, followed by V-Net Vipers, who ousted Village Rams, against Tarmac Titans from 16:00h.
Banks DIH also reaffirmed their commitment to hosting the free ‘Kidz Zone’ at the National Stadium, aback the Green Stand.
The children will enjoy free rides in the child-friendly zone, including a bouncy castle and free ice cream, soda, snacks, and water.
Only the Green Stand will be open for usage, but the Red Stand will be open if there is an overfill.

The two losing semi-finalists will walk away with G$100,000 each. There will also be prizes for outstanding individual performances.
