No one can stop the feeling of Ate Evelyn Co as she celebrated her 26th birthday with the kids from Gawad Kalinga Laura Drive, Taguig.

Straight from a business trip from China, she participated in a fun run in Bonifacio Global City, then went to Taguig for our event.

Ate Evelyn, a Hotel and Restaurant Management graduate, was joined by her friends from De La Salle College of Saint Benilde and Chiang Kai Shek College.

The celebration was graced by 25 kids aged 5-14 years old from the GK community. The place was filled with excitement all throughout the day! We played a Hula Hoop Relay, and In and Out. After the games, we enjoyed a magic show. Ate Evelyn was the guest star of the show which made it more magical. Also a happy coincidence, our photographer for the event, Kuya Robin, was born on the same day and year as Ate Evelyn!

The main activity of the event was the dance workshop which was hosted by Ate Ren, one of our core members, and a member of a dance group in the University of the Philippines. Everyone danced to the tune of “Can’t Stop the Feeling” by Justin Timberlake.

After dancing, we had snow cones to quench our thirst. We also ate Amber’s pancit bihon and lumpiang shanghai with the kids.

We ended the program by giving school supplies and shirts to the kids, and sealing everything with a hug.

This event was Ate Evelyn’s first outreach activity, but would not be her last. She is just getting started.
