Annual China Garden Banquet - A wonderful evening!

Our annual China Garden Banquet to benefit the AREF scholarship program was held Thursday, April 21.  About 60 Rotarians and guests gathered to enjoy a fun evening featuring great food, fellowship, and most important, fulfillment of our educational mission through fundraising.  The event raised almost $9000 for our scholarship programs. In addition the banquet offered an opportunity to present this year’s scholarship winners:   Callie Randall of Washington-Lee High is the 2016 recipient of the AREF traditional scholarship for a four-year university, while Alejandra Fernández of Arlington Mill High was selected for this year’s Arlington Rotary American Challenge Stipend in memory of Audra Rafter.
