Marketing and PR maven Michelle Garcia-Arce recently hosted a birthday charity dinner at Origine Restaurant, Brittany Hotel BGC, for the benefit of Dr. Jose Fabella Memorial Hospital, considered the Philippines’ most important maternity healthcare facility.

Organized by Storytellers Management Inc., the dinner featured a sumptuous menu of Spanish cuisine, curated by Origine Restaurant’s chef Alexandra Cacho. Guests were treated to a spread of pintxos, paella, and an array of culinary delights, concluding with desserts from Arce Dairy Ice Cream.

Serving the greater Manila area, Dr. Jose Fabella Memorial Hospital sees an average of 150 births per day, one of the highest rates in the country. With limited resources and overcapacity, four to five mothers and babies share two single beds pushed together.

During the charity dinner, 13,500 pieces of diapers were raised, which were turned over to the hospital on March 8.

“We are immensely thankful to Mitch and all the donors for their generous contribution,” said Dr. Antoinette Pacapac, chair for external affairs committee at Dr. Jose Fabella Memorial Hospital.  “This donation will make a significant difference in the lives of the infants and families we serve at Dr. Jose Fabella Memorial Hospital.”
