Organised by Adhunik, a private art gallery, the money from the match tickets, costing Rs 200, Rs 400 and Rs 800, was donated to the two campaigns.
Dressed in his trademark orange outfit, Baba Ramdev also sported matching shoes.
While Ramdev, the new-found football enthusiast, did not make any contributions for the charity, his company Patanjali Ayurved was the official refreshment sponsor.
