Richard Poon sings for elderlies in Tanay

"Jazz sensation Richard Poon pleased audiences with a mix of classic and contemporary  hits in Growing Old With You, a concert at Celebrity Sports Plaza in Diliman, Quezon City for the benefit of the senior citizens of Golden Acres Haven for the Elderly."

"Velasco-Taberna said funds raised by the concert will be used for the medication and financial support of the residents of Golden Acres in its newly built facility in Barangay Sampaloc in Tanay, Rizal that takes care of over 140 abandoned, neglected, and homeless senior citizens.
“We do this annually, but this is the first time we had elders for our beneficiaries. Mostly, they have been kids,” Velasco-Taberna said, adding that the company has been partnering with the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) for their projects. “We asked DSWD Secretary Dinky Soliman about possible  beneficiaries and she suggested that we visit the elderlies who were transferred here  in Tanay.”
Earlier, the company visited the site and treated residents to a number of entertainment performances, in addition to providing them with food and donations in kind. “We’ve been very blessed this year,” said Velasco-Tabema.”We hope for more socially-inclined events for Outbox.”
Both events were lauded by local DSWD officers. “I admire her decision to celebrate her birthday and company anniversary here. Their visit had brought enjoyment and satisfaction to our elderlies,” said Ricky Bunao, manager and center head of Golden Acres. “We hope they continue to extend their help to other retirement centers as well.”
