A brief description of the 4th annual function held on 5th March 2010.

Fourth annual function of Kokan committee - Dammam, Khobar branch was held on 5th March 2010 at White Palace marriage hall in Dammam. The management committee and coordinators always stride hard for the betterment of function. As such we took lot of corrective measures to make this function a great success.

First of all the venue selected was spacious. The main hall could accommodate 350 people. A separate dinning hall coupled with food from a professional caterer made things much better compared to last year. All the attendees enjoyed the food and the service offered.

In order to maintain the discipline through out the program several committees of volunteers were formed who made sure that the discipline was maintained at all times and function progressed in timely fashion. The management committee would like to thank the following volunteers for their untiring support.

M/s Moazzam Qadri, Shabbir Khamkar, Ahmed Kazi & Murad Jalgaonkar were incharge of transportation who made sure that no one was left behind.

Mr. Ridwan also shed light on the aims and achievements of Kokan committee. Taking a step forward, this year the balance sheet of Kokan committee for the year 2009 was projected on the screen in the form of a presentation. The colorful presentation was prepared by Mr. Johar Balbale and presented to audience by Mr. Mubashir Kardame. In the presentation we gave the complete details of collection and disbursement under all heads with a comparison to year 2008. The importance of collection was highlighted to the audience with a repeated request from speakers to concentrate more on collection.
