We had the brunch yesterday. Every year it’s getting bigger and better! 130 tickets sold at a higher price and only a few tables at the back had empty seats. The donations keep rolling but, we already able to say that we will be in a position to offer ten scholarships to the Punlaan students. Importantly as well, I think the organizing team was energized as never by the event. An innovation this year were the caterer and a cake company that sold Filipino food. They sold a LOT of food. Consequently, we made very good results on the profit sharing.
Punlaan’s school mission

LINCCO is the Canadian charity raising $500 individual scholarships for the transportation and practical class supplies of students – We have paid for 30 to date!
