The Burlington Cricket Club -- of Massachusetts, not England -- will hold its yearly cricket cup tournament next month with all proceeds to benefit a new Shrewsbury-based non-profit called the Next Generation Fund.
The charity, which received non-profit status earlier this year, raises money to feed, clothe and educate children in India.
Organizers say they hope the event raises awareness about poverty and the game of cricket in New England. More than 20 teams will participate. --Megan Woolhouse
