Listen, I don’t know anything about the sport of cricket other than we don’t have it here in the U.S. (right?). What I do know is that in the UK a huge charity event and party will be taking place with performances from Ringo Starr, Eric Clapton, and Rolling Stones bassist Bill Wyman, to name a few, and I want to go to there (30 Rock reference, anyone?).
Bunbury’s Big 25th Birthday Ball— we can’t make this stuff up— will celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Bunbury Celebrity Cricket Team with a celeb studded party at The Great Room in the Grosvenor House Hotel. Taking place on May 7th, proceeds will benefit Clapton’s Crossroads Centre for alcohol and drug abuse, the English School’s Cricket Association, and the AF Foundation which aims to improve child rehabilitation and physiotherapy units throughout the UK.
Over the last 25 years the Celebrity Cricket Team has raised more than £12 million for charity. And this event promises to be no exception, as the cheap seats to the party start at £295 and go all the way up to £5,950— that includes a bottle of wine per person, dinner, and a goody bag, plus the money goes to some truly great causes!
