"An Evening of Elegance under the Stars" - A Fundraiser for TRAIL

It was indeed a most elegant evening at the home of Dr. Walter and Aeshea Jayasinghe on September 30th, 2017 as SLMANA-WEST held "An Evening of Elegance under the Stars." The event drew 365 guests and raised $125,000 for TRAIL Sri Lanka.

TRAIL is a charity that is building a much needed and modern Cancer Clinic at the Karapitiya Hospital in Galle, Sri Lanka. Now, cancer patients in the southern part of our homeland will not have to travel to Colombo for diagnosis and treatment. Inconvenience, expense, and suffering will be greatly reduced, cancer outcomes will surely improve, and lives will be saved. Economically disadvantaged patients will be principal beneficiaries. We were grateful to have TRAIL founder Sarinda Unamboowe present at the event.
