Eat. Share. Love. 2012 Benefit Dinner

A BIG thanks to all who supported the 4th annual benefit dinner of Tapulanga Foundation, Inc. held in L'Fisher Hotel last November 16, 2012.  La Proa Halls 1 and 2 were filled with more than 200 people; everyone enjoyed the buffet dinner and at the center of the hall, the silent auction of over 100 items was displayed.  Congratulations to Matthew Ledesma for winning the raffle prize of a Kindle HD Fire.

The chorale and dancers of St. Francis of Assisi School of Silay City, of whom mostly are scholars of Tapulanga Foundation, showcased their talent during the evening.

Not only did we have more attendees this year, thanks to all the generous sponsors and donors, we were able to double sponsorships this year both in cash and in kind donations. We raised a total of Php305,500 to include the raffle and dinner tickets.

The menu for the evening was Potato Italian Salad, Lasagna, Beef Steak Tagalog, Chicken Teppanyaki, Pan Fried Fish Fillet with Tarragon Herb Butter, Buttered Mixed Vegetables and Chocolate Cake.
