The first OI Awareness Event of OI Support Philippines was held last July 27, 2010  at the Alpa  Hotel in Batangas City. The event was made possible in cooperation with the Rotary Club of Batangas.  Speakers were Dr. Lanie Alcausin , Pediatric Clinical Geneticist presently affiliated with the Institute of Human Genetics-National Institute of  Health and Ms Jeneth Catapang of OI Support-Phil. Dr Alcausin discussed the medical aspect of OI and Ms Jeneth presented the advocacy of OI Support-Phil. Rotary Club of  Batangas supported the advocacy by pledging 5 percent of the proceeds of their two upcoming fundraising projects, the Golf Tournament and the Souvenir Program. Two weeks after the awareness event, a  copy of the Board Resolution documenting their verbal pledge was received by Ms Jeneth from the Secretary of the Rotary Club of  Batangas, Engr Bernardo Hornilla. Thank you Rotary Club of Batangas!
