POLIOPLUS EVENT HUGE SUCCESS!
As part of its PolioPlus Campaign and in tribute to our former District Governor Ram Gawande, Columbus Rotary presented Dances of India, performed by Nalanda School of Indian Dance on Sun., Nov. 13, 2011 in the Upper Arlington High School Auditorium. The dancers showcased various classical, folk and Bollywood style dance forms. All proceeds from this event will be given to Rotary International's PolioPlus Campaign.
Preliminary reports indicate that the event raised over $10,000 for PolioPlus. Our gratitude is expressed to Indira Satyapriya who presented the idea to the club, trained all of the dancers and identified most of the event sponsors. Nancy Trux headed the club committee hosting the event. Thank you Nancy and the rest of the Rotary volunteers that made the afternoon a success.
