Annual Dinner Dance 2009

The Childlanka organisation gathered at the C & L Country Club Northolt at a glittering annual Christmas dinner dance on the 19th December 2009. The evening was highly successful with over 200 guests. The event was opened by Mrs.Priya Siriwardhane- The founding member, chief guest Mrs. Fernando and other trustees by lighting the Sri-lankan traditional oil lamp. Various speeches were given by Mrs,Priya Siriwardana – Founder, Mahilal Kottegoda-General Secretary . We were also privileged to have the presence of Mrs. Fernando who also gave a speech about Christmas.

The entertainment became evermore traditional as two dancing groups from the Gercey’s dancing school performed traditional kandyan style dances. The little kiddies were entertained by a Santa close & gifts. To follow live music was provided by an upcoming Band SANGA as their excellent combination of rock and roll, jazz, soul and Baila kept the guests on their toes until the early hours of the morning.

Traditional Sri-Lankan buffet was served to the delight of the crowd. A raffle was drawn. With joy and warmth in ones heart knowing that the funds raised from the event was going towards educating under privileged children in Sri Lanka. All in all the smiling faces that left the C & L Country Club in the early hour of the morning showed how much of a success Childlanka Annual Christmas Dinner Dance was.
