During one of the “every second Saturdays of the month” bi-monthly meetings of the new set of officers of KAPPT (Katipunan ng mga Artistang Pilipino sa Pelikula at Telebisyon), a blogger witnessed the “fire and intensity” of each of the newly-elected officers.
They’re here with no laughing matter, but dead-set serious with their responsibilities and tasks. Heated arguments, clashes of ideas, conflicting ideologies- only made them more PASSIONATE AND MOTIVATED.
Mr. Rez Cortez, the elected new President was calm, composed…but HOT. He corrected some wrong attitudes and protocols. He stood by with his convictions. He could command.
Ms. Evangeline Pascual, the Chairwoman was feisty, strong and articulate. She noted all the minutes of the meeting and kept a journal for the ‘Katipunan’. Her warmth made all the other officers “at hand”.
Ms. Maria Isabel Lopez, the VP for External Affairs, was direct-to-the-point, cooperative, objective. Her dedication to the ‘Katipunan’ was truly felt.
Other more officers were really ready to deliver. They all wanted a new ‘Katipunan’ that’s more into action, rather than WORDS.
Their first major event: FUN RUN WITH THE STARS is now creating much attention among all the actors (legitimate enough in the movie and TV industry) to join, participate and contribute something for the said worth while event.
On June 29, 2014, starting at 4:30 in the morning- actors and actresses, together with regular runners, will gather at the Quirino Grandstand, Luneta, for 3k/5k/10k/16k fun run!
All for the sake of a ‘renewed’ good camaraderie among all the performing artists of the movie and TV industry, and the benefits of this health-oriented cause and event will be for everyone!
Organized by RUNtarantahan and KAPPT, this first major event of KAPPT will signal the start of a new and active Actor’s Guild of the Philippines.
Star Olympics 2014 will follow soon. And more, more more.
Be a part of “FUN RUN WITH THE STARS”. BE A MEMBER OF KAPPT.
