Rotaractors and Rotarians celebrate International Food Night 2013 and raise over £400.
Seems a shame to cut it!
The following report has been received from Manchester International Rotaractor, Sheel Doshi
On 20th November 2013, Rotaractors and Rotarians came together at the Catholic Chaplaincy in Manchester to celebrate International food Night 2013, organized by Rotaract Club of Manchester International. The night was a great success with delicious food, great conversations, captivating presentations, amazing raffles prizes and a challenging, but entertaining world quiz. Not only were we able to raise over £400 for the Club and its Book Project, but it was also a perfect opportunity for Rotaractors and Rotarians to get to know one another.
The night started off with the international dinner, which was prepared by the members of the Rotaract club. The dishes ranged from Nachos from Guatemala, to Banitza from Bulgaria, a British Victoria Sponge cake and even Wurstsalat, a German sausage salad. It is safe to say that the food and good company were enjoyed with equal measure! Next, there were a series of presentations about Singapore, Kenya, Bulgaria, India and Saudi Arabia. This was an interesting way to learn about the different cultures represented in our club! After the presentations, teams were formed according to table arrangements in order to participate in a world quiz, which included excerpts of various national anthems, images of skylines and a series of questions to test our International Knowledge. And finally, after all the excitement and friendly competitiveness of the quiz, the raffle prizes were drawn, affording a great end to an enjoyable evening.
All in all, thanks to the support and good spirit of everyone who attended, the night was thoroughly enjoyed. We are already looking forward to the next one!
