Above the lofty and inspiring slogan, “Haplos Mula sa Puso: Ikalawang Yugto,” the Quezon Province Association of Manitoba (QPAM) held a country-themed fundraising party at Essence Event Centre for the Taal Volcano victims and for the annual scholarship program by this association.
“We are very thankful for the generosity of our officers, members and advisers and supporters for their continuing support for our fundraising effort. I am overwhelmed by the warm and positive response of those who attended our very successful event,” says Maggie Chan-Ubano, QPAM president.
