FVR-RPDEV Cup Goes Provincial

On December 15, 2001, RPDEV held the first provincial fellowship and fundraising golf tournament at the Cebu Golf & Country Club. A group of dynamic Cebu based businessmen headed by WG&A Shipping Chair Victor Chiongbian organized this event for RPDEV.

This was the first time that the FVR-RPDEV Cup was held in the south, giving a chance for supporters and friends from Cebu and the nearby provinces to get to know more about RPDEV and its current projects.

Chairman FVR led a group of RPDEV Trustees including 3rd FVR-RPDEV Cup Champion Roberto De Ocampo, Rene Diaz, Jose Magno and Executive Director Nick Lagustan among others, who trooped to Cebu to compete with the locals.

Since then, RPDEV has held several other fellowship and golf tournaments in other cities such as Davao, Bacolod, and Cagayan de Oro. During these provincial sorties, RPDEV also holds roundtable meetings with local business groups, and members of the NGO community and the academe to introduce the foundation and discuss RPDEV’s activities. These meetings serve as venues for the exchange of ideas on current events and important issues and concerns as well.

As part of RPDEV's book donation project, FVR also donates books to universities and institutions in the host city during the golf tournament’s awarding ceremony. Funds generated and raised from these provincial golfing events help support ongoing RPDEV projects in line with its four major program areas.
