The Rotary Club of Bangalore in collaboration with the Honorary Consular Corps Diplomatique-India (HCCD-India) organized a Gala Evening with over 25 Diplomats at the Royal Orchid Hotel, on
th Old Airport Road on 29 of January 2023.
The event, focused on raising funds for the procurement of Dialysis Machines, saw attendance of over 350 of the who’s who of Bengaluru that included Entrepreneurs, Professionals, Businessmen, Rotarians, Government Officials and many Special Invitees & Guests.
Also present were the Diplomats that included the Ambassador from Morocco, the Consul Generals of France, Italy, Switzerland, Israel and Denmark and 20 Honorary Consuls. Many Consulates exhibited the Tourism, Education and Trade Prospects with their respective countries in stalls set up on the lawns.
Over 2 months of preparation from the Rotary International Services team culminated in what was termed as “an evening that we have never witnessed before” by our President, with similar accolades from other Rotarians who’ve spent many years with the Rotary Club of Bangalore.
The grand musical segment of the evening had a Violin performance by Aneesh and various dance performances ranging from our own Yakshagana to Moroccan, French, African, Japanese and Brazilian dances forms. The audience were enthralled like never before and there was extreme appreciation for the quality of the artists.
The quality of curation continued into the food and drinks – Wine paired with a Smorgasbord of Artisanal cheese, Slurpy sausages, cold cuts and grills before the wide Dinner-buffet spread!

This event was the brain child of Rtns. Usha Subramanian and Vikram Viswanath, who is also the current head of HCCD, Bangalore. There was an amazing support from the entire team of HCCD esp. Mr. Mohan Suresh and Ms. Shabeena. We are greatly indebted to the sponsors, Dr. K. Purushotham (International Vice President, BRICS), Rtn. Vikram Vishwanth, Mr. Mohan Suresh, Rtn. Venkatesh Tatuskar, Mr. Baljee (Hotel Royal Orchid), UB Spirits, RICO Wines, Meister Wutst and team Amiel Gourmet.

The hard work, support and the goodwill from everyone at RCB and HCCD resulted in such a grand event, and we look forward to many more!
