Walk for Rice & Summer Barbecue

June 22, 2019 – FLOW organized a team that participated in the Asian Counseling and Referral Service’s annual Walk for Rice (ACRS).  The Walk for Rice raises funds for the ACRS’s food bank, which provides culturally familiar foods.  A HUGE thank you to everyone who participated in or donated to the FLOW Team.  With your help, we raised $770 to donate to the ACRS food bank.  After the Walk for Rice, our annual FLOW BBQ was held at member Eric de los Santos’ home with the generous participation of our ABAW friends.  Other special guests included incoming President of the Integrated Bar of the Philippines, Mr. Domingo “Egon” Q. Cayosa and his wife, Hon. Maria Milagros Fernan-Cayosa.
