Filipina speaks in int’l meet

By Robbie Pangilinan
Philippine Red Cross Secretary General Dr. Gwendolyn Pang joined renowned fundraisers around the globe in the International Workshop on Resource Mobilisation (IWRM) Asia 2014 held on August 19-22 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Rohini, New Delhi, India.

Pang talked about “Boards and Fundraising” in the Strategy and Governance workshop, and about “Raising Funds Within 3 Weeks: Lessons in Rapid-Response Resource Mobilisation” in the Individual Fundraising workshop.

“It is not sufficient for us to do only what is expected of us. In this constantly changing world and worsening status of many vulnerable people that have to go through every day, we have to work up our efforts to reach out and save more lives,” said Pang, the only speaker from the Philippines.

Pang, former Chair and now Advisor of the Asia Pacific Fundraisers Network (APFN), reported that the Asia Pacific remains to be one of the world’s regions with the highest number of deaths due to natural disasters such as typhoons, earthquakes, among others.

Marquez wants shot at Kell Brook’s IBF title than fighting Pacquiao

By Eli Pangilinan
After winning a tough, knockdown, drag-out affair with Mike Alvarado, Juan Manuel Marquez is set up to take on Manny Pacquiao for a fifth time—if he wants to.The winner of the Marquez-Alvarado bout was set to be the mandatory challenger for Pacquiao, who won the WBO welterweight title when he defeated Timothy Bradley last April.

But the 40-year-old Juan Manuel Marquez (56-7-1, 40 KOs) reportedly wants to get a title shot against newly crowned IBF welterweight champion Kell Brook (33-0, 22 KOs), presumably for his next fight date in November or December. Marquez wants to try and capture a 5th division world title, and Brook is the easiest of the fighters he’d have a chance to do that against now.
