On January 12th, 2016, Revive to Survive presented a table at the 2016 Rotary All Club Dinner, featuring the Rotary International President, K.R. Ravindran, at the Downtown Crowne Plaza Hotel. Houston Skyline Rotary Club graciously asked us to present our organization to the numerous other rotary clubs from the Greater Houston Area.

The four members who attended the event were Secretary Romani Perera, Treasurer Radhini Abeysekera, and two wonderful and hardworking volunteers Gayani Silva and Russell Bell. We were granted one of the best table positions right at the entrance of the hall. We were able to speak with many wonderful Rotarians and establish contacts with people who might be willing to help us in the future. We were also able to walk around and learn more about projects with which other Rotarians were involved. We presented Revive to Survive to anybody who walked by our table and showed interest in our projects. We displayed colorful paintings from our Big Picture and Rainbow Connection projects that caught many people's eyes. We also displayed a trifold with information about Revive to Survive from its founding up until today. We also handed out business cards, brochures, and chocolate to anybody who was interested. Overall, the event was a huge success in many ways that we did not imagine. We were able to sell many of the calendars and paintings from the Rainbow Connection project and we also handed out over 20 brochures and business cards. We received contact information and business cards in return as well.

Around 6:30 pm, President Ravindran walked in to the event. Every table was trying for his attention. Revive to Survive was lucky enough to have spoken to both the President and his wife at the event. Revive to Survive is extremely grateful for having gotten this opportunity to showcase our organization to many wonderful, caring people. We are confident that we have made great contacts and friends for Revive to Survive's future endeavors.
