The Catholic Women’s Club of the Philippines (CWC), whose thrust is “serving God by serving people,” recently held its traditional Annual Tea event at the Manila Polo Club in Makati City.

CWC Annual Tea committee co-chair Estela Lopez, Lin Liboro and Annual Tea committee co-chair Minda Pama.

Led by the indefatigable CWC president Nene Pe Lim, the event commemorated the first Tea Party held at the Manila Hotel by the founders of the club in order to raise funds for the establishment of the first house of the Good Shepherd nuns in the Philippines in 1940.

During the event, National Artist Vicente Manansala’s Mother and Child painting was presented as the featured artwork for the club’s 2019 limited-edition plate to be sold at the CWC Casa Y Jardin Bazaar this Christmas. The proceeds from the sale will help in funding the club’s various charities and advocacies.

Kudos to the Catholic Women’s Club for its continuous worthwhile activities!
