GlowTouch Partners with “Heath Streak Foundation” and Sponsors International Cricket Match
MANGALORE – May 2, 2012–GlowTouch Technologies, an award-winning IT services firm providing custom technology services to businesses of all sizes, announced its ongoing involvement with the “Heath Streak Foundation,” a charitable organization launched by Heath Streak, world renowned cricket legend and former captain of the Zimbabwe cricket team.
The Foundation was formally announced by Heath Streak in a visit to Mangalore on April 28th, 2012 and aims to support underprivileged children deprived of basic educational opportunities and healthcare. GlowTouch Technologies’ CEO,
Dr. V. Ravichandran, collaborated closely with the Foundation’s Managing Director, Joseph Rego, to undertake a large-scale fundraising campaign in Mangalore designed to generate financial support from the local community.
Each year, the Foundation will distribute “Child Education Certifications” to local disadvantaged children that will entitle the children to use the certificate in helping fund their higher education pursuits. The Foundation has also partnered with a local healthcare organization, Unity Hospital, to provide financial support to local children suffering from heart disorders and other illnesses.
In an effort to support the Foundation and drive awareness, GlowTouch partnered with the Foundation to sponsor an international Cricket match, the first ever in Mangalore, which was held at the NMPT Cricket Stadium on April 29th, 2012 between the Zimbabwe Africans and the Karnataka Indians. The match was telecast live, replete with a full media contingent, and had an estimated audience of more than 5,000 people.
Dr. V. Ravichandran also invited Heath Streak and his team of International Cricket professionals to the GlowTouch facility in Mangalore, where they collectively discussed the prospect of opening a new cricket stadium in Mangalore and enhancing the current training facilities to better support the local cricket players.
