CricBay Holiday Cup 2014 - Canceled

Portrait of Subraya Mallya

20 Dec 2014

Due to persistent rains in the San Francisco Bay Area over the last few weekends rendering the grounds unusable, with much regret, we will have to cancel the Inaugural CricBay Holiday Cup for 2014. We will, however, continue to make this part of our annual cricket calendar and will host it going forward every year. That said, we are proud to see the turnout by the community in stepping up and contributing to the efforts to give back to the local community (food banks, shelters). We all are lucky to have great lives and this was the least we could do.

Having said that, we would like to take the opportunity to thank all the CricBay members (and their friends) who graciously donated to the Charities. We were able to raise upwards of $12000. This is significant contribution - think of all the people who will now have food and do need to go hungry and the people who get a roof above them. God bless you all for your kindness.

In the interest of transparency, we would like to share with the larger CricBay community that - as with all charity initiatives - CricBay did not get or collect any money from this initiative. All the donations were directly made to the charities. We have, however, purchased a large trophy - CricBay Holiday Cup - using our own funds - which will be a rolling trophy - on which winning team name will be inscribed.

We would also like to thanks a bunch of volunteers who spent a lot of time, effort in organizing things - Karthik Alur, Niranjan Pujari, Abhilash Raman, MohanBabu Rao, Ankit Shah, Srinivas GokarajuRakesh Badlani, Sandeep Gautham and last but not least Sheshagiri Shenoy

As for cricket itself, we are working on possibly scheduling test matches, over the Christmas weekend and all the people who have donated (we have the list) will get priority in terms of playing. Stay tuned for an announcement coming soon.

  • Match winning display and MOM in a Platinum Finals ?  Check that too.. Captaining the team ? yes
