Help on of our members, Alicia Smith-Harding, go to Dubai to compete at the Indoor World Series.
My Daughter is Alicia. She is 16 and has been chosen for the South African side for indoor cricket World Series to be held in Dubai in September this year. This is the second time she is representing South Africa. Last time was in 2015 and she went to Australia. Whilst on tour her father was involved in a very serious car accident. He was in ICU for two months and has not been the same since the accident. It is a miracle that he is alive. Alicia never stopped playing cricket all this time even though it has been very challenging. She played for Eastern Gauteng Outdoor Team last year for the third year and Captained the Under 16 Side. She plays outdoor cricket for her school-Benoni High(Senior Player of the year). She plays outdoor for Benoni Northerns Ladies side(Best Bowler for the Year). She also plays the super league indoor Ladies side and also for mixed social as well as for South Africa. So she is a busy girl. When she was chosen I refused to tell her that she could not go as she has worked so hard to get her, even with all the challenges.
I have already done one indoor Funday. I am doing another two fundraisers and was wondering if you would be interested in assisting at all.
*We are doing Barnyard Sunday the 30th of July. Doors open at 11.30, show starts at two. The show is called Big Top Rock and the price per ticket is R190.00. I need to buy at least fifty tickets as this is a fundraiser.
Lastly I am asking if any Company Owners would like to donate any amount of money as a donation towards her trip. With Alicia not being a BEE player it makes it very difficult to get any donations so I am asking if anyone would like to donate any amount. I still need to raise over twenty five thousand Rand and that does not include her spending money. I can give you a letter for the money donated and a receipt which is tax deductible.
I really need to make Dubai happen so everyone's help will be appreciated.
