Prince Harry planning fund-raising ride in USOctober 25th, 2009 - 2:15 pm ICT by ANI
London, October 25 (ANI): Prince Harry is reportedly drawing plans to participate in a fundraising polo match to gather finances for the charity Sentebale he established to help orphans in Africa.
The 25-year-old will purportedly meet potential donors from Virginia next month for a discussion on switching an annual polo tournament from Gloucestershire to America.
“I’m organising a meeting at Clarence House with the Virginia investors. Among them are some travel companies that are keen for the exposure,” the Telegraph quoted Saroj Chakravarty, the founder of the Chakravarty Cup, as saying.
Harry touched hearts during a celebrity fundraising visit in New York in May that saw the attendance of several A-listers including Madonna and Jennifer Lopez.
A pal of the Prince said: “It was a big success and raised a substantial six-figure sum. He is keen for the American Friends of Sentebale to build on that success. He was delighted with his reception.” (ANI)
