Dinner for a cause conducted
About 300 members and officers of the Y’s Men’s Club attended the dinner for a cause held at the Bacolod Government Center recently, where they were welcomed by Mayor Evelio Leonardia, a press release from the city said.
Leonardia said the Club is not as big as Lions or Rotary clubs but it has gone international and gave him the opportunity to meet people. He was not yet a politician when he joined the club, he said, but his orientation and exposure eventually made him one, the press release also said.
He said the BGC, worth around P349 million, is also the home of Y’s Men’s, and he considers it as one of his accomplishments as a member of the Club.
Leonardia also attended the exit conference on the National Validation for the Most Child Friendly City at the MassKara Hall of the Government Center, with DSSD officer-in-charge Sally Abelarde, Department of Education assistant superintendent, Clarissa Zamora and national validators Froilan Flores, Erlinda Aguila and Jasmin Tandigan.
He said he hopes that Bacolod, that was cited recently as “The Most Livable City in the country,” will be judged according to its record and performance, as it has been a consistent finalist in the annual contest, the press release added.*
