When Jaime Tee assumes leadership of the Lions Club Metro Baguio on March 31, indigent young cancer patients will be the highlight of his induction to the top post.
It will be the art works of these of children suffering from cancer from the Helping Hand, Heal Heart Ministries, Inc. that will be the highlight of the ceremony ushering the Abanao Street businessman’s assumption of leadership of the civic group.
It will be an art exhibit cum auction night for the works of the kids at the Supreme Hotel, which will serve as gallery for their recently finished art works in acrylic and watercolor on canvas as well as drawings.
Tee says that the children will be absent because those suffering from the dreaded disease are not allowed to go out as well as in observance of the health protocol for Covid-19.
“Two adult representatives from the Healing Hand, however, will be present for the auction cum exhibit that will be part of my induction as president,” Tee told the RNG Luzon.
