The Uplift Internationale volunteers, local hospital nursing staff and Rotarians were all treated to dinner at Nennette’s Garden in Kalibo hosted by the governor. It was a delicious dinner in a lovely outside setting under the stars.
In addition to dinner, individuals were recognized who without their participation the mission would not have been near as successful. They were: the Uplift founder Dr. Jamie Yrastoza, Theresa Snelling, the always effervescent Megs Lund, Donna LaVigne, Dr. Mimi Wong, Dr. Jeff Swail and Jonathan Savelle. After all of the volunteers received their Certificates of Appreciation, the dancing and singing began in pure Filipino fashion. Evening highlights included a serenade by the Singing Rotarians and dancing under the stars to the forever popular hit tune YMCA.
Thank you to the Governor and everyone who made this night possible. It was a night to remember for a long time!
