The Think Tank Entertainment Mahalaxmi Race Course
The Rotary Foundation had a vision — to celebrate its century completion in a grand way. The Think Tank Entertainment was brought on board to manage the Rotary Centennial Race that took place on November 20 at the Mahalaxmi Race Course, to commemorate Rotary’s 100 years of service.
More than 5,000 Rotary members from all over the city were invited for this celebration. Keeping in mind the varied demography of the crowd that would attend the event, the agency managed different aspects so that there was something for everyone present.
The horse race was the most anticipated attraction of the day, with 7 races conducted through the day.
Rotary planned a surprise for everyone attending and attempted at breaking the Guinness World Record for the Largest Horse Shoe!
For the first time in the history of The Rotary Foundation, they aimed for this feat. At the arena, this successful installation was the centre of attraction and was revealed with music and dance performances by the Power Bockers. To create an even more uplifting atmosphere, cannon blasts were set off.
After the races, the crowd was serenaded by live performances by young upcoming talent including Shahid Mallya of Ikk Kudi fame & DJ Arkane. A ‘Gini and Jony Kids Fashion Show’ was also organised for kids.
Gourmet cuisine and the finest liquor was served while a flea market was set up selling clothes, shoes, desserts and more.
The evening was taken over by the Rotary ladies, who participated in a professionally curated beauty contest with diamond-studded crowns and tiaras up for grabs.
Among prizes handed out there was a Honda bike and Club Mahindra vouchers, for the Raffle winners. A tattoo counter and games kept the kids engaged while allowing their parents to attend the event without any worries.
The Title Sponsor for the event was Nivesh Guru, while the Races were Powered By Times Now and Driven By Tata Hexa; the Kid’s Styling Partner was Gini and Jony, and Real Estate Partner Kanakia Spaces.
Rashi Shah, Project Head, The Think Tank Entertainment, shared her experience, “We have come a long and exciting way from all the meeting and brainstorming sessions. Now that the event is over it all seems worth the effort. To add to all the grandeur, we are humbled to be a part of an event which was aimed to fulfill philanthropic activities.”
