CITY OF SAN FER­NANDO - Event or­ga­niz­ers and sup­pli­ers from all over Cen­tral Lu­zon raised funds to help chil­dren suf­fer­ing from dif­fer­ent types of can­cer.

Can­cer patients from the Kythe Foun­da­tion, Inc. were the cho­sen ben­e­fi­cia­ries of the fourth Cen­tral Lu­zon Event Sup­pli­ers’Ball held re­cently at the Bella Plaza, Tar­lac City, said or­ga­nizer and Flow­ers and Be­yond owner Aris San­tos.

San­tos said that the an­nual so­cial, par­tic­i­pated in by around 300 event sup­pli­ers, aims to unite and cre­ate a smooth re­la­tion­ship in the in­dus­try of event or­ga­niz­ing, which is very im­por­tant to pro­vide better ser­vices to their re­spec­tive clients.

“Our aim here is to cre­ate re­la­tion­ship sa am­ing mga sup­pli­ers. ‘Yung mak­i­lala namin ang isa’-isa, kahit ‘hi’at ‘hello’lang. Hindi na­man kasi dahil iisang in­dus­triya, da­pat kom­petisyon. Ang gusto natin mag­ing healthy ang re­la­tion­ship,” he said.

He added that the ball also pro­vides a chance for new­bie sup­pli­ers to in­tro­duce them­selves, as well as for ex­perts to share their knowl­edge about the beauty of the in­dus­try and flour­ish a smooth work­ing re­la­tion­ship among each other.

He added that this year’s so­cial ball is made even more spe­cial since 30 per­cent of the P500 en­trance ticket will be do­nated to the Kythe Foun­da­tion which helps chil­dren with can­cer on their med­i­cal needs.

On the ticket sales alone, San­tos said that the group was al­ready able to col­lect some around P45,000. This is aside from the P18,500 funds raised from the “Char­ity Tree” where par­tic­i­pants hang red en­velopes con­tain­ing cash do­na­tions.

“This is a very sig­nif­i­cant event be­cause we weren’t only given a chance to bond, but also to help chil­dren who re­ally need as­sis­tance both fi­nan­cially and morally,” he said.

The funds raised were per­son­ally turned-over to Kythe Foun­da­tion Inc. Representative Carmina Gomez dur­ing the event.

Gomez, who is an acute lym­phosi­atic leukemia sur­vivor her­self, ex­pressed her grat­i­tude in be­half of the foun­da­tion for choos­ing them as ben­e­fi­cia­ries. She stressed that the funds raised will go a long way in help­ing the patients and their fam­i­lies.

“With your gen­eros­ity, you are able to ex­tend the lives of chil­dren who are bat­tling with can­cer,” she said.
