The Philippine Business Society of Alberta (PBSA) president is calling for unity in the realization of the Edmonton Philippine International Centre (EPIC).
“We are calling for unity for EPIC. We’ll build it, no matter what,” said PBSA president Celso Andrade.
Andrade, owner of Sunfreight Cargo, said that the PBSA’s Christmas Party on Dec.18 at the at the Holiday Inn Conference Center South had a silent auction and all proceeds will go to the community centre.
“We do accept pledges,” he said.
EPIC’s project launch is set on Feb.1, 2020.
Philippine Arts Council’s Ida Beltran-Lucila has been working doubly hard for the past several weeks calling on community leaders to rally behind the project by sending invitations on FB.
Meetings have been conducted to fine tune details for EPIC. Crosstown Auto Centre’s Ches Tiongson and Remax realtor Loida Lumanlan have facilitated the venues for the meetings.
