Rotary Adopt A School (RAAS) Information

A. Sports Day for All on 2 November 2013 at Tseung Kwan O Sports Ground
The site visit originally scheduled on 2 August but postponed to 9 August 10:30 a.m. due to the bad weather. Rotarians are welcome to join in.
Since Hong Kong Jockey Club turned down the application for funding support due to timing concern and the nature of the event is different from the original application that HKBSF applied for 2 years’ financial support to direct benefit Visual Impaired people, the OC was advised to raise funds on its own. A fund-raising sub-committee chaired by Grace Chan, CEO of HKBSF was formed and Rotary will consider supporting.
