In a simple yet remarkable affair, members of the Board of Trustees of Mahintana Foundation, Inc. and Sarangani Resources Corporation, together with its management and staff, representatives from partner organizations and project beneficiaries celebrated its 37th Founding Anniversary on August 12, 2014 with a thanksgiving mass held at the Dolefil Gym, officiated by Rev. Fr. Bobby Parreño- Parish Priest of Jesus the Good Shepherd Parish. In his homily following the Gospel Reading, Fr. Parreño reminded the mass attendees to be as simple and lowly as a child, and to continue working not for self-glorification but finding happiness in being able to help others and serve a greater purpose.
The mass was followed by a short program graced by no less than the VP and Managing Director of Dolefil Mr. Randy Fleming, Deputy Governor Aemon Gabriel Matti and Municipal Mayor Honey L. Lumayag-Matti. During the program, MFI Executive Director Martiniano L. Magdolot acknowledged the support that has been accorded by the company, the Board of Trustees and the LGU , making Mahintana very active in development work for the last 37 years and formally announced the upcoming Alay Gabay Invitational Golf Tournament on November 22-23, 2014 at the Kalsangi Golf Course. This will be a fund raising event to benefit the Alay Gabay para sa Maginhawang Buhay Wheelchair Distribution Project.
SRC President Engr. Carlos S. Baldostamon thanked everyone who came and joined in marking another “happy moment” for SRC and Mahintana and for being there to relive the arduous tasks, sacrifices, joys, trials and adversaries in line with development work and hopes that everyone will be inspired to sustain the efforts for what lies ahead for SRC and Mahintana.
