PNA Gulf Coast Florida raised funds for the Community Outreach Programs
By: Cecile Santos- Medenilla, President
One of our mission is to be able to help our kababayans in times of need. Whether it’s in the US or in our motherland. So we grab the opportunity when one of our officers suggested a fund raising event at their Clubhouse.
We thought of selling items donated by members , plants, arts and crafts. But we finally decided to sell pancit, egg rolls, turon or banana fritters, baked goods like cookies, hopia, banana cream cheese cake.
With the aroma of our food items, people including vendors came to our table curious of what we’re selling. Some knew pancit and egg roll from their Filipino friends. So people sample our food and kept coming back for more.
One of our members also donated plumeria plant. She brought 5-6 plants and they were all sold out. Our food items were almost sold out as well. We are grateful to our officers and members who participated in this event . For those who donated baked goods and other items to sell, thank you very much.
It was a fun day with our members and at the same we accomplished our goal to raise money to augment our Community Outreach Committee funds.
