Rotary Foundation Centennial Gala Dinner

May 31, 2017, The Atlantic, Central Pier, Docklands.

Since the Rotary Foundation was established in 1917, the foundation has spent more than US$3 billion on Programs and Projects to improve the lives of millions of people worldwide.

With 100 years of service to the community, it's time to celebrate and bring members of the community together with Rotarians from right across Australia wide for a Gala Fundraising Dinner, held right here in Melbourne (the home of the 1st Rotary Club in Australia - Rotary Club of Melbourne).

The Rotary Club of Southbank is proud to host this Centennial Foundation Dinner and auction and along with corporate sponsors and the Australian Rotary Districts have set the challenge of raising AU$1,000,000 in contributions and bequests which will help set up the foundation for an even more exciting 100 years and beyond.


Can violent men change? The signs are positive, research finds

Published in the Age, by Miki Perkins, Social Affairs

Can a violent man change? Can he stop the assaults on those he is supposed to cherish, and reduce his psychological games?   

Yes - to some extent - according to optimistic new research that looks at the effectiveness of men's behaviour change programs in Australia.

Rotary B-Long - Guest Speaker Tony Jackson

9th May, 2017


Imagine a place where you could go to find out everything that is going on in your community, be it Local, International or just focussed on a common theme. Somewhere that you could share your events, your news and immediately connect with those in your extended community who want to take action to help make it happen.

Now imagine that all this was available in the palm of your hand from an app installed on your phone.

At our club meeting on 9th May, learn about the development of a new mobile app – “Rotary B-Long” that will do just that.
