CHARIS Foundation has partnered with U! Happy Events to celebrate CHARIS President Chris Tiu’s birthday with the kids of Tuklasan Center in San Juan on July 19, 2014.

The two-hour event consisted of fun games, zumba session, gift-giving, and a football clinic which was conducted by CHARIS volunteers.

Around close to a hundred participants — kids, volunteers, and Tuklasan staff — were in attendance to celebrate Chris’s special day.

Below are some photos of the event:
