On behalf of our Board of Directors, officers, our gala committee, and the entire members of MACA, Inc., I would like to welcome and thank you for joining us in celebrating our 2016 Fundraising Gala and Induction of Officers ceremony.
This gala is a true celebration of us dreaming the impossible, achieving greatness, and inspiring others. It is an opportunity to honor those who dreamt about helping others in need in 1992. It is a chance to acknowledge our scholars who are achieving greatness in their field of studies. It is also a time to take a glimpse into how our members inspired others through various community service program. In the past years, MACA, Inc. has helped or contributed to the following:
PhilHealth enrollment of 24 families
Tuition scholarship of 5 college students
Clothing Drive Program
U.S. Philippines Society
Step-Out Walk for Diabetes for American Diabetes Association
American Cancer Society
Manna Food Center
Asian Pacific Legal Resource Center
In the spirit of celebration, we would like to acknowledge each of you for making this a memorable event for years to come. We extend a special thanks to all of our gala sponsors. Your contributions are invaluable to the organization and will be used to continue our goals of helping less fortunate scholars achieve their academic pursuits and provide improvement initiatives to deserving disadvantaged citizens of the Island Province of Marinduque, Philippines.
We are proud of the accomplishments of the organization over the past years and recognize that we could not have delivered on our mission without the support of our donors, friends, and members. We look forward to your continued partnership in helping MACA, Inc. grow and thrive. To our fellow Marinduqueños, young and old, I encourage and challenge you to become more active in MACA, Inc. Your commitment will continue to bring our community closer as we foster the culture of giving both stateside and abroad in honor of our beloved home province of Marinduque.
