Harmony Cup, the Annual Fund Raising tournament of IIM Lucknow, was organized successfully from 14th – 17th November, 2010, by Bhavishya, the Social Initiatives Committee of IIM Lucknow.

 

Harmony Cup is a cricket tournament with 30 student teams, including teams from various committees of IIM-L, competing against each other.

The entire funds raised are used for various social causes. This year the funds will be used for helping the NGO ‘Baccho Ki Duniya’ to setup a school for underprivileged children and to develop the infrastructure at the orphanage, Rajkriya Balgriha. The sponsors for this year were Midnight Bakers, Subway, Pizza Hut and N-Arkx Engineers and Consultants. Special mention must be made of Team Pulse who contributed generously for the event.

 

The Cup was inaugurated with a special match between the Faculty and the Student’s Council of IIM-L, which was won comprehensively by the Faculty. This was followed by three days and nights of fun filled matches which culminated in a finale between Team Warriors and Team Mavericks. Team Warriors put a spectacular show to defeat Team Mavericks by 63 runs and win the trophy this year.
