July 2011

Papua New Guinea’s national carrier Air Niugini has shown its support to Rotary International’s work in the country with major sponsorship for the Rotary Black Tie Ball in Lae on Saturday 23rd July. The ball is hosted by the Rotary Club of Lae.

New Momase Regional Manager for Air Niugini Orim Turbarat said “Rotary is a service organization of business and professional leaders united worldwide who conduct humanitarian projects, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations and work toward world understanding and peace. Air Niugini shares these values and supports the honest practical work that Rotary does across the country.”

Mr. Turbarat recently handed the club overseas and domestic travel vouchers as prizes for the Club’s major fund-raising raffle.

In accepting the support Lae Club President Anthony Whitfield said “Once again Air Niugini has given our supporters a chance to win some fantastic overseas trips through a fundraising raffle and we are very thankful for their generosity and support. This is the sixth year in a row that they have supported us. The funds we raise will continue to help those in the community who really need it. Air Niugini has been a vital partner to Rotary with the roll out of the RAM (Rotary Against Malaria) program across the country. ”

Club Vice President Captain Cesar DeWindt said “The ball is a fundraiser for Rotary. All proceeds from the Club’s Annual Black Tie Ball will go towards various Rotary service projects both at club level and on a broader scale. We are delighted with the strong level of support that the business community gives us at the club and toward Rotary in general. When I speak with business people who are supporting Rotary they are very aware of the benefits to the community that the club’s projects have.  They are aware of the global reach that Rotary has too. If your Company has made an obligation to community service, please consider Rotary as a potential partner”.

Strong Corporate Support for Rotary Black Tie Ball

July 2011

Some of Papua New Guinea’s biggest companies have shown their support to Rotary International’s work in the country via their attendance to the upcoming Rotary Black Tie Ball in Lae. Lae Club President for 2011-12 Anthony Whitfield said the Club’s Annual Black Tie Ball was a great social event for the community of Lae but had a very important objective underlying it.

“The ball is a fundraiser for Rotary. All proceeds from the Club’s Annual Black Tie Ball will go towards various Rotary service projects both at club level and on a broader scale. We are delighted with the strong level of support that the business community gives us at the club and toward Rotary in general. When I speak with business people who are supporting Rotary they are very aware of the benefits to the community that the club’s projects have.  They are aware of the global reach that Rotary has too. If your Company has made an obligation to community service, please consider Rotary as a potential partner”.

Club Vice President for 2011-12 Captain Cesar DeWindt said “Rotary is a collection of business and professional leaders united worldwide who conduct humanitarian projects, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations and work toward world understanding and peace. So the local Rotary Club is a really practical way for professional people to act for a better community where they live. Because it is made up of professional people, it has the added bonus of assisting people to develop their business networks and leadership skills. I want to commend it to company executives and their professional staff.”

“In a recent edition of this newspaper there was a profile on businesses in Lae. The business leaders highlighted in that profile have either been members of Rotary or have been strong and willing supporters of Rotary for many many years. These leaders are a great example of successful people who realize that serving their community, in this case through Rotary, is vital for success in business and in life”.
