Meeting Highlights:

6th November 2014, we welcome back Rtn. Maeder, Rtn Maneiras and our guest Trent joining us in this regular meeting. We also have a visiting Rotarian Cathy from RC Wisconsin who came to Macao for a brief stopover after her China trip.


We introduced our exciting  “Light Up Rotary Great Gondola Grab” Charity Raffle Draw Winter Promotion which will be launched from Nov 8 to Dec 7, 2014. during the meeting. Raffle draw tickets at MOP50 each or MOP100 for 3 will be sold through our club as well as Kong Seng ticketing offices. All funds raised will be donated to Concordia Special Education School, Macau Autism Association, Macau Down’s Syndrome Association and Guangxi Literacy and Poverty Alleviation Project.

The grand draw will be held at Venetian outdoor lagoon on Dec 7 ( Sunday ) at 7 pm and instead of the traditional drawing of ticket stubs, the winners will be picked from the thousands of lit–up miniature gondolas floating on the lagoon as each of these gondolas is affixed with a lucky draw ticket number. Prizes include 1st cash prize of $38,888. The 4 beneficiaries will have a booth at the venue on the same evening introducing their services. A press conference was held on Nov 7 together with Sands China Ltd, who fully sponsored this charity program.

So please mark your diary for Dec 7 and hurry up to grab the tickets from our club or Kong Seng ticketing offices.  ( Attached are some pics of the promotion details)

Box collection – thanks to Maeder, our acting SAG who exercises quite many fines for no pins Rotarians.  From the base sum collected, PP Fred topped up and challenged a few to the final amount of $5,500.
