Former India captain Sourav Ganguly will be seen walking the ramp to raise funds for the expansion plan of oncology care unit of the Tata Medical Centre.

Titled ‘Dada’r Shongey Dil Sey Deejiye’, the fund raising will take place at a city hotel on Friday. It will have a special cricket field theme with Ganguly at the centre of action.

He will walk the ramp, besides auctioning his cricketing gear.

“He has given us his cricketing gear for the auction. We will set up a cricket field to go with the fashion show in a musical evening. We hope this to be a tremendous success,” Tata Medical Centre’s director, donor relationships Geeta Gopalakrishnan said.

Ahead of the event, Ganguly recalled the sufferings of his former teammate Yuvraj Singh and talked about what he went through after playing an instrumental role in winning the ODI World Cup in 2011.

I’m happy to see him recover and play the sport again which I thought was impossible at one stage. I have known him very closely for a long period of time. I’ve seen him go through the pain and suffering. I’m sure Tata Medical Centre makes such a difference to a lot of lives which get unnoticed
