The 2nd DMACC Feeding Program "Share Because We Care" was successfully held by the DMA Conservatory Center headed by couple and proprietors Jezrel L. Geolingo and Mary Grace Villasor-Geolingo with the support of the Geolingo family, friends, and sisters of the Sto. Niño Orphanage last April 11, 2010, Sunday, 3:00-5:00 PM, at the Sto. Niño Orphanage, Puentebella Subd., Bacolod City.
The philanthropic civic activity started with a eucharist celebration by Rev. Fr. Anecito Buenafe Jr. The original venue was the Nuestra Señora Chapel but it had to be transferred to the Sto. Niño Orphanage Chapel for a lack of an officiating priest at the first location.
The 27 recipients from the orphanage gave special dance numbers to the sponsors and guests. Mary Grace Villasor-Geolingo facilitated a simple program of singing, dancing, and games for the kids. Special prizes were given to the winners. The various sponsors and supporters of the activity helped in the distribution of snakcs to the children.
Raingo del Prado, Jake Benamer, and Debbie Mahinay of the DMA Conservatory Center gave a break dance number for the kids.
Present during the activity were Sr. Eva Ferro, BVMC, Sr. Rodelia Gaspar, BVMC, and Sr. Ma. Gina Talisayan, BVMC.
Sponsors who supported the civic activity include Judge Eliseo Geolingo and Alicia L. Geolingo, Jezrel L. Geolingo and Mary Grace Villasor-Geolingo, Carla Geolingo, Archie Ng, Brian Villasor, Verna Lama, Lotlot Cordero, Altea Annuales, and James U. Sy Jr.
