On Saturday September 25th, 2021 over eight hundred men, women and children came out to the Pointe-a-Pierre Golf Club Ballroom at the picturesque Pointe-a-Pierre Golf Course between the hours of 2 pm to 7 pm for our Annual Chokhafest Scholarhip Fundraiser.
Over 1,000 tickets, donated by Ace Printery, were sold this year as patrons showed their support for students in need of assistance to further their tertiary education as the proceeds from our Chokhafest fundraiser solely funds our Scholarship Programme.
Patrons all observed the Covid-19 regulations regarding sanitisation and social distancing by following the well placed signage and floor markers. This year two serving stations were installed on either side of the room to ensure that there was no crowding of patrons while choosing from the variety of chokhas.
This year patrons were treated to 10 different types of chokha, coconut chutney, kuchela, murtani and home-made pepper sauces. Hot sada roti and fry bakes were prepared on-site with ingredients provided by our generous sponsors. Beverages and dessert were also provided by Blue Waters, Caribbean Bottlers and Coca-Cola, Parkview Supermarket and Kiss Baking Company. The Club also received a generous donation from Republic Bank Ltd towards our Chokhafest expenses.
Patrons also had a chance to participate in our Raffle upon entry to win the Ninja Blender donated by Hand Arnold and the champagne and wine hampers donated by Nadira Ramlogan.
Finally, the Club appreciates the support from all our Rotarians and potential Rotarians and wishes to extend our heartfelt thanks to the cooks, spouses and children of Rotarians, Interactors, friends, patrons and all of our sponsors for ensuring Chokhafest 2021 was a resounding success!
