With 100+ Guests in attendance the Gala raised over 47,000 RMB for Charity!
We want to start by saying Thank You.
Thank you to the 100+ guests who attended the event last night to make it such a resounding success.
Thank you to our amazing sponsors in Vandergeeten, Cheers, Evoke Motorcycles, Victory, Vivid Bar, UPLI, Beijing Victory Advertising, Beer Mania, The Tree, Morel’s Restaurant, Hilton Hotel and many individual contributions.
What a night! The venue was amazing, the libations were plentiful and the fellowship from those who made it out to support the event was the cherry on top.
"It definitely made a lasting impact" said Kien Drakes, Beijing West club President. "People showed up for the cause and in the end, everyone had a lot of fun too! Rumours are already spreading about another party like this one next year, for which we'll have to wait and see :)."
A raffle was held for door prizes including a free stay at the Hilton Hotel chain, bottles of expensive champagne, high quality writing pens and more. The raffle alone raised another couple thousand RMB and helped to provide an entertaining close to the evening.
"This is just the beginning"...
"The impact for Rotaract is that we really did a good job in promoting our brand with this event. We hope that we can learn from this Gala and that others will see the impact we can make in the Beijing community and join us!" said Anissa Kahina, Beijing Rotaract President.
"Rotaract is also about leadership development. During the process of planning this event, our team really went to great lengths to work together with sponsors and vendors to make it happen. Multiple people had the opportunity to work on leading in a specific aspect of the event & we hope that they we're able to learn a great deal as well as have fun."
The Rotaract brand is starting to gain ground in Beijing as we look to recruit students and young professionals age 18-30 in joining the team in making a difference in Beijing. There is much we can do together and the event last night proves how powerful the call to service can be. Many hands make light work!
Come join us or talk to us about your organization in Beijing and let's work together to make a difference for the better. Rotaract Beijing West is based in Wudaokou and the Rotaract Club of Beijing is based in Sanlitun. The clubs are focused on growing the presence of Rotaract as well as the impact we make on the Beijing community.

We hope to see you again soon!
Rotaract Beijing West is a student led organization in Wudaokou. During the summer months, many students return home awaiting the start of a new semester. Due to this, our weekly meetings will pick up again in August. In the meantime, stay tuned for social event notifications or opportunities for service as not all of us disappear for the summer!
