IN time for the coming Christmas Season, the Association of Women Legislators Foundation, Inc. (AWLFI) of the 17th Congress, composed of the 87 lady solons of the House of Representatives, will be holding its very first fundraiser billed as “PamasCONGHandog: Garage Sale for a Cause” on December 6 to 7 at the Southwing Lobby of Congress.
The event is more of a “treasure sale” wherein shoppers can find great deals on pre-loved and pre-owned items, such as clothes, shoes, bags, accessories, etc., of House Members and celebrity friends who are all joining hands to make the fundraiser possible.
As an additional treat, AWLFI officer Rep. Vilma Santos-Recto (6th District, Batangas) is expected to surprise shoppers with a celebrity guest artist during the event’s opening day.
AWLFI President, who is also House of Representatives’ Central Luzon Bloc President for two consecutive terms, Rep. Linabelle Ruth Villarica (4th District, Bulacan) said proceeds of the sale will support a rehabilitation center in Nueva Ecija.
“PamasCONGHandog: Garage Sale for a Cause” is chaired by Rep. Sol Aragones (3rd District, Laguna) and Rep. Juliette Uy (2nd District, Misamis Oriental).
