Center for young indigent Angeles residents receives P225K donation

The Angeles City government and its private sector partner Beautederm Corporation donated P225,000 to Anak Bale Balayan, a transformation center for young indigent city residents.

The proceeds came from the “Gayak Angeleño: Mutya Ning Angeles 2022 Charity Gala Night” that featured ternos of local designers, officials said.

The breakdown of the 225,000 is as follows: P50,000 from Angeles City Mayor Carmelo Lazatin Jr., another P50,000 from Beautederm president Rei Anicoche-Tan, and P25,000 from Chief Adviser IC Calaguas and Executive Assistant IV Reina Manuel.

In addition, the event also collected P100,000 from private individuals.

The event is a joint project of the Angeles Guild Designer — organized by Marlon Tuazon, Rosette Ramos Biag, and Frederick Policarpio — and the city government, sponsored by San Miguel Beer Corporation.

This is to further assist the operation of the Bale Balayan, a museum conducting trainings in music and dance for the less fortunate members of the society.

The Bale Balayan, founded and headed by Peter De Vera, is located in Barangay Sta. Teresita. It has partnered with the city government for the music and dance training of children in conflict with the law (CICLs) housed at the city’s youth reformation center Bahay Pag-Asa.

“We are sharing a common goal with Mr. De Vera in transforming the youth through arts,” Lazatin said.
