2012 Dinner Dance: Anti - TB Educational and Fund Campaign

Inspiring and heartwarming --  that's how I felt last night when I attended the 2012 Philippine Tuberculosis Society Dinner Dance. I admired the Fund Campaign Volunteers who work hard and make this event a success and to the sponsors who shares their blessings for the benefit of PTSI.

The Philippine Tuberculosis Society is a non-stock, non-profit charitable organization founded on July 29, 1910 primarily to combat tuberculosis which is said to be still a major health problem in the Philippines today. Since then, PTSI has been on the forefront in the campaign against TB. They actively involved in the National Tuberculosis Program of the  Department of Health, primarily through the Private-Public Mix DOTS (Directly Observed  Treatment Short Course) the subsidized  treatment of indigent TB patients, and its involvement in TB research and training  programs. With its constant quest for TB control and management.

Dancing and giving – all for a great cause.
2012 Dinner Dance, anti-TB educational and Fund Campaign was held in a beautiful ballroom, chandeliers and all with dinner and appetizers served at Club Filipino in Greenhills, San Juan yesterday, September 27, 2012. Funds raised from these campaigns are used to subsidize medical treatments of indigent patients at the Quezon Institute, as well as to support the various anti-TB programs of PTSI in the provinces such as TB in Prisons, TB in Children and TB in the Workplace. Glad to know that there are company and manila’s cause-oriented folks that are willingly shelled out donations for PTSI’s fight against the deadly disease.

A Night of Fun and Great Music! 
I really enjoyed the night, my big thanks to my friend Argentina Morata who invited me. Well-heeled guests enjoyed an evening of ballroom dancing to the infectious music of the Soundstream band. We are all delighted especially with the band impromptu renditions of familiar Broadway tunes. We had so much fun in the ball,  dance instructors are friendly and nice. It's been ages since my last ballroom dancing practice so believe me it's kinda worst! Glad my dance instructor is highly skilled and trained:) And who wouldn't get giddy over The Pointer Sisters - I'm So Excited and Awitin Mo At Isasayaw Ko of VST & Company anyway? oldies but goodies eh! My boyfriend  and I have our own steps yet we dance as if we own the floor. ^^ Who cares were having fun :p The food was good and the ticket is a bit pricey but keep in mind that it is an event-for-a-cause and surely everyone's presence would be a help to many. Ooops! Btw, Did I mention that we won the raffle?? Yehess! Lucky us! ^^
