ACTIVE COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT
The Board of Trustees of SCOT Trust New Zealand wish to share with you the level of community support it enjoyed during the previous year 2012.
2012 Philippine Consul General Golf Cup headed by former Philippine Consul General Emilie Pe Shi was a great success! A total amount of $405 was raised during an auction and raffle draw at held 12 February 2012 at the Formosa Golf Club. Ms. Shi was gracious enough to double the amount raised from her own personal donation. Thanks, ConGen Emilie for your generous support!
On the previous day of 11 February 2012 du ring the concert of Parokya ni Edgar held in Auckland, the Trust managed to raise a total amount of $1,111.00 from raffle ticket sales. A big round of applause and thanks to Tina (photo at right) and Elmer Cabingan – the producers of Emerge Entertainment, for choosing SCOT Trust New Zealand as the beneficiary of the guitar raffle which was awarded during the concert night that was attended by hundreds of people!
On Saturday 25 February 2013, Ms Maricel Weischede of NZIHS (photo at left) invited SCOT to participate in a special event where she conducted a raffle draw to raise funds for SCOT Trust. Ms. Weischede is a regular children’s sponsor of SCOT’s Assist-A-Street-Kid (A.S.K.) Scholar ship programme. Thank you, Maricel!
One of the Philippines’ top songwriters and crooner – Jose Mari Chan, performed a memo rable evening concert show on 4 March 2012 at the Westlake Boys High School. His visit to New Zealand was all made possible through the efforts of Rene ‘Direk‘ Moli na (photo at right) of Hamilton City. Mr. Molina is a popular DJ who airs his talk show at Mabuhay FM Radio Romance radio station. SCOT Trust thanks him for including our charity as one of the beneficiaries of this sell-out con cert!
For the second time in a row, SCOT Trust New Zealand was bestowed with a Certificate of Achievement during the 16th February 2012 ceremony event of the New Zealander of the Year 2012 Awards Night. Co-Trustees Mike de Boer & Nanette Carillo (photo at left) were also given a Certificate of Achievement. These awards are dedicated to all of you in comunities across New Zealand who’ve helped us through out the years.
Another positive development that’s come up is that the SCOT Breakfast Club Programme for schools in Auckland will start by next month March 2012.
Mauro ‘Ka Uro‘ Oreta, who moderates the very popular and thousands-strong ALKnzPINOYS Yahoo eGroups site which helps new Filipino migrants in Auckland settle down, visited the Philippines on a tour of SCOT’s various Hope Training Centres. SCOT’s volunteers in the Philippines assisted Mr. Oreta to do all the rounds and meet the children at these Centres.
To all of you and those other thousands of silent supporters not mentioned just yet for lack of space on this page, we thank you for your valuable and continuing support! SCOT Trust cannot achieve the objectives and out comes of its various programmes for streetchildren and orphans here and also in the Philippines without your help. SCOT’s operation depends largely on your support. Your contributions in all so many different ways counts a lot in strengthening SCOT Trust’s 3-stage ‘Slingshot’ Model of Empowerment!
May God bless you all abundantly in much the same the way your unqualified support and concern have blessed the children under SCOT Trust’s care and guidance!
