Benefactors' Night

Pictured above are some of the representatives who accepted funds on behalf of their organisations. 


The format of this year's Benefactors' evening proved to be a huge success. Our sponsors, supporters, Rotarians and beneficiaries were able to mingle informally and get to know each other while enjoying a variety of tasty morsels prior to the more formal part of the evening, the disbursement of club funds.

Over $41,000.00 was distributed to charities and organisations locally, nationally and internationally. A click on the photo gallery button below will take you to a photo coverage of the night and the organisations that received funds.

It was a very humbling experience to hear of the wonderful work that goes on around us and always leaves you with the wish that you could do more to help.
