Ravisa-Night School, Br. Rafael Donato scholarship, Saint Benilde for the Deaf, James Hilario Integrated School, and the De La Salle Scholarship Endowment Fund.
The event included a silent auction and raffle, with featured a grand prize of a round trip ticket to the Philippines, courtesy of Manolo Relova DLS GS'59 HS'64 BSC'68, and hotel accommodations at Nuevo Vallarta, Mexico, courtesy of Dino Africa La Salle Lipa HS‘68 DLS’73. Jojo Flores, former Kundirana member and LSGH GS'81 HS'85, also performed a two-song solo act that highlighted the evening.
