Rotary Club Utrecht International

Our club turned 10 in February 2015!

To celebrate this special year for our club, we chose to set an ambitious goal for ourselves.

One part of the fundraising efforts was the organisation of our

African Benefit Evening on Saturday, June 13.

We had a fantastic evening with African flair.

The evening has been a great success. THANKS SO MUCH to everyone, who helped making this possible. The organisation team, the people helping on the evening, and of course the guests.
Special thanks also to Geertekerk (Huize Molenaar) for offering their great location at a charity organisation rate, to The Ostrich for delivering delicious authentic African food at a special price, to the key note speaker Rachel Irura from the International Criminal Court in The Hague for some insights into the problems of child rights in Kenya, to the performers for an excellent show of African Djembé drums and also for involving the audience so much (there even was some dancing!).
And then last but definitely not least to the auction master Frederik Baerveldt, who did such a great job! It was fun, entertaining and brought some serious money.

A more detailed summary of the evening and pictures will follow soon. Keep posted!!
