PMAP is more than a professional association. We are family to each other and provide support for growth and well-being. This was clear in the PMAP Cares! Love for Tessie night to help Trustee Tessie dela Cruz in her fight vs cancer. It was an inspiring event, promoting a spirit of faith in God’s will and plan for each of us.
The photos show the highlights of the night and capture the fun we had as people who care!
Trustee Tessie’s message : “No words would be enough to thank you, my dear PMAPers, and friends of PMAP, for the overwhelming love and moral support, and everything you have extended to me and my family. The more I wanted to give back to anyone I can be of service to.
My heartfelt gratitude to COPA, Pres Gerry, 2018/2019 BOTs, Past Presidents Rene, Barbie, Jimmy, Obet, Jess, Bong, Art, Lucy, Chit, Atty JBJ, Ed, Noli, who were all there, PP Pilar, Grace Z and Grace S, Mon etc etc sending their messages of love. To my beloved PS, Dette, Carol and all, thank you. How could I thank you people.”
We prayed for Tess, lifted her up to God and entrusted her to His grace. It was a time also for fellowship and bonding among friends, old and new. We brought our families, friends, colleagues to share love for a woman whom some met for the first time that night. What mattered was the outpouring of goodwill which created the happy vibe!
The hard-working PMAP Professional Staffers, led by Dette Tan did an outstanding job of selling tickets, coordinating deliveries and payments. Then, they celebrated with a wacky pose!
Our results show what we can do together! As Dette reported, “Thank you everyone who braved the rain and the horrendous traffic to attend the fundraising concert. We sold 321 tickets and raised P481,500.00. Our expense was P49,500 in Johnny B. Good bar, and so we have P432,000 for Trustee Tessie.”
As her journey continues, Trustee Tessie says, “One thing definite in my life now, my dear PMAPers, your loving concerns and emotional support, really strengthen me and keep me going. Our Good Lord always lifts me up and kapit na kapit ako because of you. I will be with you soon. Salamat, salamat. God bless you all a hundredfold.”
As the Word of God says in Romans 12:15, “Rejoice with them that do rejoice, weep with them that weep. ” The PMAP Cares evening for Trustee Tessie was a rain of joy in the midst of trial. Thank you to everyone who bought tickets, gave love and heartfelt prayers. PMAP Cares!
