Philippines of North Texas 2005-06 Charity Fund-raiser
Holding the Sky"
Mrs. Philippines of North Texas Charity Fund-raiser is not just
an objective and audited campaign for money. It is also a celebration
of the many wonderful facets of women, particularly the Filipino
charity fund-raiser strives to showcase stories of women, who have
time and again, shown the extraordinary values and qualities that
have won freedom for nations, that have afforded comfort to the
needy, and have wielded unity within the family and the community.
year, the focus of the theme was tribute to several Filipino American
women who have achieved high position in the government and community
involvement- such as Loida Nicholas Lewis, president
of NAFFAA, Dra. Mariano, personal physician of
former president Bill Clinton and President Bush, and Mrs.
Cristeta Comerford, White House Executive Chef, the first
woman to serve in the position_responsible for designing and executing
menus for state dinners, social events, holiday functions, receptions
and oficial luncheons hosted by President Bush.
endeavor we have, the Mrs. Philippines of North Texas, is a testimony
to the Filipina's entrepreneurial spirit. Since 1989, when it was
first launched until today, we have Filipino women who have taken
on the task of raising funds to augment the community's resources
to meet the need for scholarships for its high school students,
offer free medical outreach events to everyone in need and to open
its doors to a viable physical center.
lead fund-raisers are our symbols and representatives of our what
the Filipino women can do and achieve!
