Rafe Sale A Success!

We had another successful fundraiser in Manila last November 14, 2009. The one-day Rafe sale earned Php294,000 in bag and shoe sales! My gosh, I have never seen so many women go "crazy" over Rafe bags and shoes!

We are so blessed that Rafe has helped our foundation so much from his t-shirt design to his bags/shoes.
A great blessing as well are my 2 high school classmates/friends, Joy Magalona-Barreiro and Anne Ordonez-del Rosario, who organized this entire event. Joy and Jeff Barreiro as well had a "perfect" office as venue for the sale. Their staff of five gave their whole Saturday to help in the sale! Leny Ojano-Yusay also volunteered her day to help in the sale! Thanks to Jackie Millonado as well for being our "official" photographer! And of course, THANKS YOU TO ALL who came to the sale -- you were responsible for a successful fundraiser!

All the proceeds of the sale will be go to Typhoon Ondoy victims and a second Rafe Totengco College Scholarship Grant to be awarded to an SFAS graduate in March 2010. - written by Micmic Golez, Executive Director of Tapulanga Foundation, Inc.
