THE city government of Manila, bestows the “Diwa ng Lahi Award” to Rodolfo “Dolphy” Vera Quizon, during the ‘Patnubay ng Sining at Kalinangan’ awarding in City Hall today, in recognition of his achievements and contributions to Filipino arts and culture.
Manila Mayor Alfredo S. Lim said that as a friend of long standing, Dolphy was very helpful during his campaigns way back, and was very supportive with his projects for the city. Like Mayor Lim, Dolphy was also born in Tondo, Manila and the two had been friends when they were still both starting out in their chosen careers.
Before the awarding ceremonies for the winners of the Best Barangay,’ Lim requested the audience to offer a minute of prayer for Dolphy’s speedy recovery.
He also read out his June 5 letter to Dolphy where he extended the invitation for him to attend the affair and personally receive the award.
“Bagamat nakatanggap na kayo ng Patnubay ng Sining at Kalinangan noong taong 2007, sa taong kasalukuyan ay nagagalak kaming ipabatid na kayo ang napiling Diwa ng Lahi, bilang pagkilala sa inyong pagpapamalas ng galing at ‘di mapantayang pagsisikap,” Lim said.
Dolphy was also one of the “Patnubay ng Sining at Kalinangan” awardees in 2007.
