The Beneficiary

Sofitel Philippine Plaza general manager, Adam Laker says, “We were delighted with the success of our first ever run in collaboration with Coach Rio dela Cruz which attracted more than 3,000 runners.  Over PHP 755,000 have been raised and has been used to purchase a van that was recently handed over to the Virlanie Foundation for their activities for the street children of Manila.  It is Sofitel Philippine Plaza’s advocacy to create a brighter future for the less privileged children of Manila.  Since 2007, the hotel has launched several projects to help raise funds to support the foundation’s benevolent activities in order to reach out to the children and families living in the poorest areas of Metro Manila.
