To our Sri Lankan community members, families, and friends all over the world—Sri Lanka needs you now more than ever.
Sri Lanka is in crisis, and a majority of the people who call this country home are in imminent danger of starvation. The Sri Lankan people have been met with 13+ hour power cuts, dangerous shortages of much-needed food and medicine, and a scarcity of healthcare supplies needed for medical surgeries and procedures. The hardest hit are those living at or below the poverty line and whose day to day income has been severely affected by these power cuts and supply shortages. Many Sri Lankan families cannot afford basic food and medical necessities. 100% of the proceeds from this fundraiser will go towards local community organizations supporting people of ALL ethnic backgrounds in Sri Lanka.

SLANE Winter Ball 2019 was held on February 9, 2019 at the DoubleTree Hilton in Westborough, MA.
