Top finalists of 4th RAFI Awards to present community works

Cebu City (24 November) -- Top five outstanding individuals and institutions who have been nominated as finalists in the 4th triennial awards will present their work and how this has benefited the community in a public forum on Wednesday.

Initiated by the Ramon Aboitiz Foundation, Inc. (RAFI), the RAFI Triennial Awards was launched last 1996 in the Visayas and Mindanao to give recognition to individuals and institutions who committed themselves to building a more humane, equitable and caring society.

The awards honor the men and women who, through their efforts to bring about change and improve the lives of the less-privileged, reflect the philanthropic, humanitarian and holistic ideals and values of Don Ramon Aboitiz and Don Eduardo Aboitiz.

The Triennial Awards is conferred every three years and is given in two categories, the Ramon Aboitiz Award for exemplary Individual and the Eduardo Aboitiz Award for Outstanding Institution.

Currently on its fourth run, the winners in both categories will be conferred in March of next year. After a process of nomination, field validation, screening and deliberation, othe independent search committee, composed of members from the public and private sectors headed by BigfootGlobal Solutions, Inc. CEO John Joseph Mercado, came up with the top five finalists for both award categories. (PIA-Cebu/FCR) [top]
