The Proposed Pool
The Colombo Branch of Dharmaraja College O. B. U. is making arrangements to stage the ‘Keerthi Gee’ concert at 6.45 p.m. on 28th May 2005 at the Bishops College Auditorium, Colombo 7, to raise funds for the planned Swimming Pool for Dharmaraja College, Kandy a project undertaken by the Colombo Branch.
Keerthi Pasqual the solo performer at this concert is a singer and a musician of great distinction and is one of the most popular if not the most popular singer today in the country who has returned after a 4-year lapse abroad and has taken the youth of the country by storm. The concert too is very popular and the many performances he has had so far have been to packed houses. Further he is a ‘Rajan’ who has brought credit to his ‘Alma Mater’ by his prowess as a talented singer and a musician.
Although swimming Pool seems a luxury in terms the high cost of investment, there is no argument to the fact that a Swimming pool for Dharmaraja an institution of such magnitude is an essential requirement not only for competitive swimming as a sport but also as an essential extra-curricular activity which all students should indulge in as it helps both character building and inculcating self-confidence from the formative age. Hence the reason for our Branch to embark on this very ambitious, a vitally important project for our ‘Alma Mater’.
We realize that the investment cost is quite high and with our efforts so far we have been successful in raising a larger percentage of the estimated cost for the project. With the anticipated success of this fundraising event we are of the firm belief that we would have the necessary funds to complete the first stage of the project, which is the Pool with the purification equipment and the Changing Rooms. We therefore request you to assist this worthy endeavor by being a co-sponsor to this musical extravaganza by donating Rs 250,000.00 for our Swimming Pool Project.
We are looking for Co-sponsors. They will be entitled for the following privileges at no extra cost: -
· Two complimentary tickets in the front row for the concert.
· Print the logo of your esteemed establishment on the 5000 posters that will be displayed in the City of Colombo.
· Print the logo of your esteemed establishment on 50 banners to be displayed in the City of Colombo.
· Print the logo of your esteemed establishment on the two 20’ x 10’ ‘Hoarding Boards’ to be displayed in two prominent places in Colombo.
· A full page advertisement in the Souvenir to be printed for the occasion.
· To display a banner at the Bishops College Auditorium on the day of the concert.
· Announcements by the compeers during the concert.
The Cheque may be drawn in favour of Dharmaraja College Development Fund which is an Approved Charity by the Department of Inland Revenue.
Colombo Branch is looking forward for everybody’s generous participation to make this show a financial success.
