The Virat Kohli Foundation, an organisation headed by India’s cricket captain and one of the most dominant batsmen in international cricket, will host the Virat Kohli Charity Ball, on Monday, 5th June 2017 at the iconic HAC Ground, London.
Touted to be one of the biggest charity-sport events of 2017, The Virat Kohli Charity Ball will raise vital funds for charitable causes, for the empowerment of the underprivileged in India.
Coinciding as it does with Kohli leading the Indian team in the UK this Summer for the ICC Champions Trophy 2017, the star-studded night will bring together some of the greatest names in the game, both past and present, and many other renowned personalities.
The event will comprise a VIP champagne reception, surprise star appearances and world-class entertainment interspersed with a lavish three-course gourmet cuisine. There will also be a live auction where the guests will be able to bid for luxury products and cricket memorabilia close to the heart of the star batsman and his contemporaries.
Speaking about the event in London, Kohli says: “I am honoured and excited that London will be the first international city to host my Foundation’s Charity Ball, in aid of the charitable causes that I hold dear to my heart. The event is a manifestation of my dream to bring about a transformative change in many lives by supporting the underprivileged sections of society. I look forward to joining hands with the public in London to raise a substantial amount.”
