The Burgos Circle Car Club, an organization of sports car owners who regularly converge in Bonifacio Global City, partnered with the Fort Bonifacio Development Foundation, Inc. (FBDFI) to promote education by inspiring kids to stay in school.
The Club recently made a substantial donation to the FBDFI, BGC’s corporate social responsibility arm. It will fund the needs of its adopted school ─ the Gat Andres Bonifacio High School (GABHS), which occupies a four-level building in Brgy. Fort Bonifacio in Taguig. Specifically, the donation will be used for the construction of several offices for the convenience of the teaching staff and other personnel.
To raise the funds, the Burgos Circle Car Club encouraged the members of its affiliated organization, the Manila Sports Car Club, to pledge assistance to the cause. Burgos Circle Car Club co-founder Ismael Cruz said, “For this endeavor, we came up with a battle cry ‘Sports Cars for a Cause’ to help the Filipino youth have a better education.”
This is the 2nd time that the Burgos Circle Car Club, an organized BGCitizen community, made a donation to the FBDFI. Its first round of donation in 2016 went to the Gat Andres Bonifacio Elementary School, wherein it contributed to the fit out of two classrooms.
The Foundation is grateful for the invaluable support of the Burgos Circle Car Club, a BGC community, in helping carry out its socio-development thrusts.
“FBDFI provides an avenue for BGCitizens to reach out to the rest of the community and help uplift the lives of those who are in need,” said Mark Salas, FBDFI’s corporate social responsibility officer.
