Domogan cup golf tourney benefits city's clean and green, health, civic causes

BAGUIO CITY – The city government's clean and green program as championed by the Alay sa Kailinisan Inc. and the numerous kidney and cancer patients were the biggest beneficiaries anew of the recently concluded Domogan Cup golf tournament.

Mayor Mauricio Domogan said a total of P500,000 of the proceeds went to the ASKI this year for the city's clean and green programs.

"This fund is where we are getting the money to augment the city's budget to pay the additional wages of the streetsweepers and garbage collectors who render overtime work during special events of the city," the mayor told his Ugnayan Panlungsod press briefing aired over SkyCable and Radyo Pilipinas (Radyo ng Bayan).

Domogan who has been known as the "janitor" of the city for steering the city into Hall of Fame status after winning the national clean and green contest in the highly urbanized city category for three consecutive years in the 1990s said the cleanliness drive remains a priority program of the city thus contributing to the program has become his mission through his eponymous golf for-a-cause staged every October, the mayor's birth month.

The mayor said of the total amount, P100,000 will go to the anti-graffiti program of the ASKI to address the need to restore vandalized places.

Domogan also recognized the need to reach out to the increasing number of patients undergoing dialysis and cancer treatments in the city thus he apportioned P100,000 for the 200 plus members of the Baguio General Hospital and Medical Center Dialysis Patients and Partners Association Inc. (BGHMC DPPA) and P70,000 to the Palliative Care Mission Program of the Saint Louis University-Hospital of the Sacred Heart (SLU-HSH) which services admitted and discharged chronically and terminally-ill patients through community-based volunteers in coordination with the attending doctors.

The Philippine National Red Cross Baguio City chapter also received P50,000 for its programs in cognizance of its contributions to providing life-saving services to the city constituents.

Various civic organizations with worthy causes also benefitted from the mayor's outreach program among which the Baguio Host Lions Club and Baguio Everlasting Lions Club , Balikatan sa Kaunlaran, Brothers of St. Andrew, Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary in Pacdal, Lepanto High School, the mayor's Alma Mater and the Baguio Correspondents and Broadcasters Club in cognizance of the media group's contributions to the city's programs and activities. – Aileen P.
