Last February 24, 2018, the Phi Lambda Delta Sorority held an event as part of the Caritas Month entitled “Children’s Fair: A Magical Affair!” at the Children’s Playground, Luneta Park. Together with the children from different beneficiaries, the day was celebrated with full of fun and games dedicated and brought to them by our partner organizations, sponsors, pledgers, and volunteers.
Around 130 kids from the different beneficiaries, namely, Autism Society Philippines UP CAMP, Pasay and Sta. Cruz Chapters, La Sagesse Rehabilitation and Development Center, and Special Olympics Philippines NCR North Chapter, joined the event. The children explored and enjoyed playing at the various booths put up by our partner organizations: U! Happy Events, Phi Kappa Mu Fraternity, UPM-OMAKE, UP CAMP Association of Physical Therapy Majors, Upsilon Sigma Phi Fraternity, and Phi Lambda Sorority. There’s a storytelling booth on Leprosy to increase awareness of this condition, a card matching game booth, smash hit booth, balloon twisting and face paint booth, which was a hit to the kids. There’s also an ice cream stand and a cotton candy stand perfect for taking a break from all the games and activities. The children had passports that will be stamped every time they visit a certain booth. After collecting stamps from our partner organizations, a series of games such as obstacle relay, hep hep hooray, and the boat is sinking were hosted by our sisses from the newest batch, Patricia Sy Phi 2018 and Vibiene Bernal Phi 2018.
The event was concluded with the kids going home with their loot bags, lunch and of course, smiles on their faces. Thank you to our sponsors, U! Happy Events and Baon the Go, to National Parks Development Committee, and to our pledgers and volunteers!
