A University of the Philippines-based fraternity will have a week-long celebration next month of its 50th founding anniversary, capped with a homecoming and grand ball on Oct. 15, 2022 at the historic Manila Hotel in Manila.
As part of the observance, the Tau Omega Mu (TOM) and Ladies Circle will also conduct a medical mission on Oct. 8-10 for three underprivileged communities of indigenous people in Pampanga, providing free medical and dental clinics.
The Pampanga free clinics will be in Sapang Bato, Porac (Oct. 8); Madapdap, Mabalacat (Oct. 9); and Santa Lucia Resettlement Area, San Fernando (Oct. 10).
After the free clinics, visiting TOM International members from around the world will host a night of fun and free drinks for all Omegans on Oct. 13 during the “Blue Jeans Night” at the Baluarte de San Diego in Intramuros, Manila.
The Oct. 15 grand ball will mark the culmination of all school and community activities that TOM members here and abroad have mobilized as part of their year-long golden anniversary celebration.
They earlier donated medical supplies and equipment for treating COVID-19 patients to some hospitals; mounted a fund drive for the benefit of selected charitable institutions; mobilized food distribution runs for indigents; and organized a blood-letting drive, aside from holding internal activities for its members.
TOM was founded in October 1972 at the University of the Philippines – Manila. The TOM organizing committee is encouraging alumni and resident Omegans who have yet to sign up to contact either the TOM Secretariat at <email@example.com> or any of the following: Emily Quevedo-Duterte, Jun Que, Cely Binoya, Gel Generoso-Jacaria, Maya Campana, and Chicoy Enerio.
