Frank Bruno & Rasheda Ali to raise awareness of Parkinsons Disease

On Monday 4 June, Muhammad Ali’s daughter, Rasheda Ali, is flying into the UK to join former WBC world heavyweight champion Frank Bruno at a unique dinner event.

Frank recently left a clinic after treatment for bipolar disorder and is now in a much healthier state of mind.  His tireless work for charitable causes has not gone unnoticed over the years.  He remains one of the most loved boxers in the UK.

A Sportsman’s dinner has been organised by Sports Corporation together with HNL Media Ltd for a prestigious evening at one of the most lavish venues in Manchester, The Sheridan Suite, situated on 337 Oldham Road.

The purpose of the evening will be to raise awareness of Parkinson’s disease, which the legendry Muhammad Ali was diagnosed with at the age of 42.

Rasheda Ali, an ambassador of Parkinson’s says:

“My purpose for travelling is to help local organisations raise insight and funds for their programmes and specifically to help local families suffering with the condition.” 

Former heavyweight boxing champion Frank Bruno, himself a supporter of the cause, still treasures a photo of himself and Ali playfully sparring. Frank Said:

“I went to the United States when I was a young man, and people ask me what Ali was like, I tell them Ali was the legend, everybody knew him to be that. Ali was also very warming, inspiring and uplifting.”

The evening will include a three course meal, live music entertainment, an auction of sporting memorabilia and raffle to raise money for Parkinson’s UK. It will also be a great opportunity to have your photos taken with a number of celebrities by a professional photographer, for you to cherish for the rest of your life.

It promises to be a great evening!
