The event was graced by ex professor of SDM, Suresh Radder. The event started with an official ribbon cutting and lamp lighting ceremony which was conducted by the senior most alumni members Satish Kumar Bantwal, Ravi Shetty, Sham Kamath, Jyothi and Santosh Malla.

Devesh Alva welcomed the SDM alumni on behalf of the organizing team. Kiran Shetty compered the entire event which went on till 12pm midnight. Professor Suresh Radder was honoured for his unedifying spirit and the motivation and support provided towards the alumni.

The whole event was packed with activities which included introduction of all SDM alumni members, Q&A session by Sudhindra Aithal, dance by professional troupe and shares of thoughts by eminent members such as Ravi Shetty, Velugula Madhusudhan, Yashwant Pai and Sham Kamath. 

Satish Kumar Bantwal proposed the final vote of thanks which was then followed by a sumptuous dinner.
