Richmond Brothers Sponsors Lingap Children’s Foundation "Hope for Orphans" Benefit
Richmond Brothers Financial Management Specialists, Inc. has sponsored the benefit for the eight consecutive years it has taken place.
By: Richmond Brothers
The benefit has taken place since 2003 and is the primary fund-raiser for the Lingap Children’s Foundation (LCF). The Foundation is a U.S.-based, tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization that provides funding for projects to help children in the Philippines. LCF has helped contribute to several positive changes in the Philippines and runs The Lingap Center, which provides hope for children who have suffered from child abuse, abandonment, neglect and exploitation.
“The center is a safe haven for children who would otherwise be in life-threatening situations. We have dedicated staff to ensure that the children eat three meals a day, go to school so they can build a solid future and give back to the community. For the first time in many of their lives, the children have access to health care and counseling services,” noted John Drake, Founder of the LCF. "We are very proud of our long-term relationship with Richmond Brothers. Through their support, they are touching the lives of countless children in need,” he said.
The center, which has been called “the best facility of its kind in the Philippines,”
“We are pleased to help support the Lingap Children’s Foundation by not only sponsoring the Hope for Orphans benefit, but also by managing the foundation’s portfolio in order to further assist them in meeting their objectives,”
