Each year, the Rotaract Club of Brisbane Rivercity hosts two major fundraising events where all money raised is donated to a charity chosen by club members, one local and one international.
Since our Charter in 2015, our club has proudly donated thousands of dollars to our chosen charities and initiated some unique and very fun events in the process.
In addition to these fundraising events, our club hosts an annual series of professional development workshops, where by drawing on the skills of Rotarians in our cluster, our club members are educated on professional development areas of interest.
2015 - 2019
Since being chartered in 2015, it has been tradition for the Rotaract Club of Brisbane Rivercity to host a trivia night. Supported by our own meeting venue, The Pig N’ Whistle, the topics have ranged from Star Wars to Harry Potter to Australiana.
SHINE for Shelterbox
2018 & 2019
A cocktail party with live music and entertainment designed to raise money and create awareness for Shelterbox whilst giving a platform and encouraging local artists to SHINE.
Shelterbox provides emergency shelter and aid to families affected by natural disaster and humanitarian crisis.
2018 & 2019
Over a two month period, club meetings feature guest speakers from Rotary members within our cluster to present on a topic of their expertise, and our interests.
After learning each subject from the Rotarians theoretically, club members are then given the opportunity to put what they have learnt into practise during a Professional Development Evening.
This is not only serves as a fantastic learning opportunity, but also builds relationships and a network between Rotarians and Rotaractors.
