Recap: 2011 Halloween Party Fundraiser

Dear fellow Members, Benefactors and Friends of SLI, Inc.,

My warm greetings to everyone!

Our fund raising Dinner Dance and Halloween Party was a huge success! The attendance and proceeds surpassed our expectations, and the costumes, dance, fun and games made the evening enjoyable for adults and children alike.

This was made possible through the cooperation, support and generosity of the members, benefactors and friends of our organization. Special thanks to: Mrs. Charlotte Stiritz Nagy, teacher-philanthropist, for her gracious presence and support; the superb rendition of Alpha and Emil Nicolasin as Masters of Ceremony; the representation of the United Cosmopolitan Church of Chicago led by Pastor Hong; the Lucena Association led by its president Mike Fontanilla; the United Dance Club of Chicago led by Ms. Adel  Calalay; the Chicago Anklong Rondalla Ensemble under the baton of Ms. Espie Magno; and the Northwest Mont Clare UCC Prayer Group members, among other friends. I also wish to express my gratitude to all the officers and members who have tirelessly extended their support to make our activity a success.

With $9,016.94 net proceeds, we are now poised to initiate the construction of our Two-classroom school building project. We will start as soon as the project location is finally determined.

Again my heartfelt thanks to everyone! May the Lord Almighty grant us more blessings as we share and care for our fellow human beings.

Sincerely yours,
Oriel Markines-Carillo
President of Southern Leyteño International, Inc.
