Activities for Pisay Alumni Homecoming Week

So I'm doing my good deed for my godfather, the president of the PSHS Alumni Association, and am advertising through any means possible the activities for Pisay's Alumni Homecoming.

Because I deliberately make myself scarce, I wonder how many Pisay Alumni will get to read this through my blog. It's not like they make themselves known. But, it never hurt to try.

This is a copy of the email that I was sent. Of course, for security purposes, I removed the email addresses included therein. For more information, you're either going to have to email me or post a comment. =p


Hi! This is Cielito (Ciel) Habito '70, current President of the PSHS Alumni Association (PSHSAA) and of the PSHS National Alumni Association (PSHSNAA). May I request you please to forward this message to your batch e-group as we in the PSHSAA Board would like to have maximum dissemination of this message to the PSHS Alumni. Maraming Salamat!
Dear Fellow PSHS Alumni,
As you may have heard, the PSHSAA is lining up two major fund-raising activities for the week of the annual Alumni Homecoming, namely:
1. The Pisay Cup Golf Tournament on August 28, 2007 (Tuesday), to be held at the Navy Golf Club in Fort Bonifacio. Please visit www.pisaycup.com for details. We are enjoining all PSHS alumni golfers and friends to support this activity by (a) coming on August 28 to play, and/or (b) helping us solicit sponsorships (the website has ready-to-print sponsorship kits and covering letter -- let me know if you will need our original signatures on the letter, which can be arranged). We have set fundraising targets for the different clusters of batches, and obviously, the more funds we raise, the better we will be able to support our forthcoming projects to benefit PSHS and its alumni. (I shall be writing you later on details of upcoming projects.)
2. The PSHSAA Alumni Concert (dubbed pisay@43.cometogether: I Am What I Jam) to be held on August 30, 2007 (Thursday) at 7:00pm in the AFP Theater at Camp Aguinaldo in Quezon City. This concert will feature performances by talents from the first eight PSHS batches (batches '69 to '75), along with special performances by "celebrity" alumni like Gen. Hermo Esperon '70, Dr. Rey Vea '69, Dean Rowena Guevarra '80, Fr. Jim Achacoso '70, yours truly, and others. Himig Agham, the PSHS student choir, will also be performing. This promises to be a night of great fun, fellowship and music (not in order of importance!) all in the spirit of reliving our PSHS memories while helping raise funds for our alumni projects. Talented and enthusiastic alumni from batches '69 to '75 are already rehearsing their performances for the concert. (For the later batches, don't despair: We expect later batches to be featured in subsequent alumni concerts, which we envisage to be an annual project of the PSHSAA.)
We are now distributing tickets for the concert to batch representatives, and in this connection, I would like to solicit volunteer contacts among the batches to PLEASE distribute and sell the tickets to their batchmates and families/friends. Patron (P500), Sponsor (350) and Regular (P200) tickets are available. We are especially asking each of the performing batches to take care of selling 150 tickets per batch (20 patron, 30 sponsor and 100 regular). Batches '76 and up may please contact me or Jun Sabug to get your tickets. We implore you for your support, participation and attendance in this concert.
May I also inform you that the PSHSAA is co-sponsoring with the PSHS Foundation the premiere screening on August 24-25 of the film set in our alma matter, "Pisay" by Aureous Solito '86 (also known for his other award-winning films "Ang Pagdadalaga ni Maximo Oliveros" and "Tuli"). Screening will be at The Block in SM City North EDSA. Tickets may be obtained through the PSHS Foundation (Tel. 924-0655) or through PSHSAA (contact me or Jun Sabug in the e-mail addresses above). Your support for this film is also strongly enjoined; it is already reaping accolades from the critics, being one of the featured films in the ongoing Cinemalaya Film Festival.
Mark your calendars: "Pisay" premiere on August 24-25, Pisay Cup Golf Tournament on August 28, and the pisay@43.cometogether Alumni Concert on August 30.
All these culminate on Alumni Homecoming Night on September 1 at the PSHS Gym, with Batch '82 as silver jubilarian hosts this year.
Sa ngalan ng inyong PSHS Alumni Association, inaasahan namin ang inyong tulong at paglahok!
Mabuhay at maraming salamat,
Cielito (Ciel) Habito '70
