An Evening of Sharing Hope in Maryland

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.  

The raffle was very successful… (the Kindle was won by Jim Siegel, Robert Graham won the other 2 prizes, an iPad Mini and a Microsoft Surface Pro 3 tablet which he decided to donate back for an impromptu live auction --- which was won by Rich Spiegel).

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.
