Minutes of Meeting Our annual fund raising event Dandiya Raas was started 25 years ago during Navratri of 1997 when PP Praful Shah was the Club President, and this has continued as our signature fund raising event, celebrated with much zeal and enthusiasm. It has been supported later on by Venkys whose contribution helps in carrying out community projects of our Club. This was possible thanks to Rtn Kapil Desai, who yearly facilitates the contribution to our Club. We received very generous support from all our members, many of whom contributed personally and others reached out to their contacts, thereby ensuring that the fund raiser becomes meaningful. This event connects our Club with the community as many from different backgrounds come and enjoy this evening, making it a very effective public image activity, spreading the awareness of Rotary. Many members including some our newer members got actively involved to make this mega event happen seamlessly. The team effort brought us closer to each other, which was one of the major highlights of this project.
