A night of meaningful entertainment

Previous posts

A fundraising event in aid of the Seminarians and Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament in the Philippines was held last 16 January at the Hungarian Community Centre in Wantirna, Victoria.

Entitled “All Night Music and Dancing”, the event featured a live concert by Jerson Trinidad together with the Impulse Band and DJ Pros.

After the successful fundraising event, organiser Jopen Quintero of J & J Express turned over to Fr Alfred Yap the amount of $3,428.84. This amount represents the total ticket sales and other income that totaled $8,415.00 less expenses in the amount of $4,986.16. (View the detailed Financial Statement)

Quintero and Fr Yap would like to thank all sponsors, volunteers, friends and members of the social and business community who supported and contributed to the success of the event.

Set up of chairs and tables and video preparation was done by Joey Loyola and Joseph of St. Francis Choir.

The door was manned by Sanghimig Choir of Rowville headed by Linda Robalino. They were in charge of selling and reconciling the tickets on that night, accepting donations from donors towards raffle prizes and labelling them so that donors would be acknowledged accordingly. They ushered all guests to their seats to avoid commotion, and it turned out perfectly well.

Carmela Sison was the emcee who introduced Fr. Alfred Yap at the start of the night to explain about the project (while the video was going on, showing the congregation in the Philippines) – donation towards the education of seminarians and nuns of the Blessed Sacrament in Philippines.

Towards the end of the night, Carmela Sison was drawing all the raffle tickets and Quintero acknowledged each donor as their prizes were given to the winners.

At the end of the event, Ultimate Clean General Services headed by Angelito Valdez did all the cleaning up of the hall. Cleaning was so thorough that the Hungarian Community Centre decided to give the bond back to Jopen after one week which normally is two weeks. The caretaker was so happy with the Filipinos being tidy and orderly which is not usually the case. Apparently, this is the first time they dealt with Filipinos.

Guests include leaders of different Filipino organisations and Filipino businesses:
