WINNERS OF RAFFLE DRAW

Social Responsibility Initiative

Mother Teresa once said that, “Helping others are better than praying lips.” And, indeed, it is true. As part of the club’s corporate social responsibility, the Makati Sports Club had the opportunity to help and gave the proceeds from the Valentine’s Event/Raffle Draw to chosen beneficiaries: Salesian Society of St. John Bosco Healthcare Program and CRIBS Foundation.

Fr. Gerry Martin, Provincial Superior of Salesian Society of St. John Bosco and Fr. Joji Inocentes visited the club on February 23, 2024 and personally received the check from Mr. Lito Melendres, Club President, Mr. Charlie Casas, Socials Committee Chairman, and Mr. Ron Limbo, the club’s General Manager.

Fr. Gerry Martin expressed gratitude to the club as the donation will definitely aid in providing quality healthcare access and improve the lives of clergymen.
