The 9th Annual Friends of Tapulanga Fundraiser (Sharing Hope) in Maryland last November 8, was a tremendous success. Over 100 guests enjoyed an evening of Filipino food, silent auction, raffle and updates on St Francis of Assisi School of Silay City.
There were many faithful supporters who have attended every fundraiser since 2006. A few new guests were surprised to see a whole roasted pig! We had some wonderful donations this year… a beautiful hand made quilt, some great artwork, some unique handmade soaps, and lots of other remarkable items.
We are truly blessed to have such an amazing group of supporters and volunteers, our sponsors (Katherine Taylor of Taylor Legal, Hoffman and Associates, and Akubo) and we especially thank Mr. Charles Miller who has generously supported us in making our event possible at the Howard County Conservancy.
