UPMASA BW Chapter Spring Gala for the benefit of OPERATION BRAVEHEART

 UPMASA BW Chapter’s Spring Gala on Sunday, May 6, 2018 at the BWI Airport Marriott Hotel.


This Spring Gala is a fundraising event to help indigent pediatric patients at the Philippine General Hospital (PGH).  Specifically, we hope to benefit Operation Braveheart, a project that facilitates the transcatheter closure of congenital heart defects (PDA, ASD, VSD) of indigent children in the Philippines.These are common occurrences with approximately 6-8 new cases diagnosed each month at the PGH alone. Candidates are screened by the Medical Social Service of PGH so that only deserving charity patients are funded. The devices used to seal these heart defects cost $1000 or $2000 depending on the type of device.These expenses are not covered by Phil-Health Insurance.Repair provides dramatic improvement in the lives of these children and their families.So far, at least 35 indigent children have had their heart defects successfully repaired thru Operation Braveheart.This project is a collaboration between our UPMASA-BW Chapter and the Rotary Clubs of Hanover, PA and Makati Southeast.


We would be honored if you and your chapter would again partner with us for this worthwhile project.We look forward to a full page greeting/ad from your chapter for our souvenir program.Attached is the registration/solicitation form with instructions on how and where to send your tax-deductible donations and ads for our souvenir program.Please note the deadlines therein.


Once again, thank you in behalf of the UPMASA-BW Chapter for your continued support and generosity.
