Our Speakeasy "Gangsters Palace" night at the Heidelberg Golf Club on 16th May promises to be an incredible fun evening featuring dazzling cabaret performances, 1920's and 30's jazz, dancing, gaming (only toy money!) and prohibition iniquities!
The poster says it all! (It's another example of how we like to put the FUN into fundraising)
Make sure you have a "sneak peak" to feel the vibe and see what's on offer via the QR code!

Teacher Training Facility Lalitpur, Kathmandu, Nepal

Proceeds from the Gangsters Palace night will support the club's Teacher Training project in Lalitpur. Kathmandu, Nepal. Together with our partners Aussie Aid Abroad and Global Action Nepal, we have funded and built the ground floor of a teacher training facility. 

Eltham Rotarians participated in volunteer work teams in 2019 and 2020 which established the building foundations, despite significant flooding. Subsequent volunteer teams were not possible in 2020 and 2021 due to Covid restrictions, however funds raised enabled in-country resources to be employed to construct and fit out the ground floor. The first cohort of trainee teachers graduated in 2022. 

We are now setting out to complete the project by constructing and fitting-out the upper floor. 

The Gangsters Palace fundraiser will help make this a reality.
