A total of $2,495 was raised by the University of the Philippines Alumni and Associates – Manitoba (UPAA-MB Inc.) during its second Flapjack Breakfast fundraiser last June 28 at Applebee’s in Grant Park.
A total of 110 attendees took their share of pancakes, bacon, and drinks in support of the organization’s bursary project in Manitoba and the Philippines; as well as the organization’s charitable donations, and operating funds.
The bursary will be awarded to two students: a first year student in Manitoba of Filipino descent and a University of the Philippines (UP) – Tacloban campus student. UP Tacloban was one of the most severely-damaged UP campus during the super typhoon Haiyan last year.
The program included a 50/50 draw, a merchandise booth, and door prizes.
Members, volunteers, supporters, and sponsors graced the event.
