Friday 6pm: 26 March 2021
The National Museum of Australia is an ideal venue to gather and celebrate 100 years of Rotary in Australia and New Zealand.
Visit between 9am and 5pm and reminisce over exhibits that tell the story of our last 100 years. If you are interested in something older, our indigenous story dates back thousands of years.
This unique building is located directly across the lake from the Canberra Rotary World Peace Bell.
Proceeds from the night go to:
Rotary Give Every Child a Future
Book a corporate table and help by bidding for one of the unique indigenous artwork at the after-dinner auction.
A Centenary Project of Rotary Australia & New Zealand
Every year hundreds of children under the age of 5 die in the Pacific Islands from preventable diseases such as diarrhoea, meningitis and pneumonia.
Rotary, in partnership with UNICEF, aims to vaccinate 100,000 children in nine Pacific Island countries against these and other preventable diseases over the next three years.
At a cost of $45 per child; we need your help.
Our Commemorative Artwork
Woden Valley Youth Choir
Members of the Choir will welcome guests with a set of popular peace-themed songs, before commencing the evening with a rousing rendition of the Australian National Anthem in the Ngunnawal language.
Pacific Island Entertainers
Throughout the evening, there will be a range of performances by Pacific Island entertainers.
(Bring some cash to ‘tip’ the Tongan dancer. All ‘tips’ will go toward the Rotary Give Every Child a Future project.)
