·2 min read

THE Cebu Federation of Beat Journalists (CFBJ) will hold its ceremonial shoot-for-a-cause with no less than the Philippine National Police (PNP) Chief Police General Debold Sinas on Tuesday, December 1.

CFBJ, an organization composed of legitimate news practitioners from established media outfits in Cebu, will launch its first fundraising event three months after the new officers took over.

For its first major event, which is the shoot-for-a-cause, Sinas will lead the ceremonial opening of the shooting competition. Police personnel from the Lapu-Lapu City Police Office are the participants of the first leg of the said competition.

Defense Press Corps president and CFBJ president Arnold Bustamente said they are grateful for the undying support of the PNP to Cebu media.

"We are an organization with over a hundred members, when the new officers thought of organizing a fundraising event, Police Regional Office (PRO) 7 regional director Brigadier General Albert Ignatius Ferro offered to help and this shooting competition is a realization of our plans in the organization," said Bustamante.

He added that all the funds that will be raised at the event will serve as the support fund for the CFBJ's emergency and health program.

"The organization, together with the new officers, are happy to announce that General Sinas is our guest of honor on the ceremonial shoot on December 1," added Bustamante.

The first leg of the three-day shooting competition is set on December 18-20, but due to the availability of Sinas, the ceremonial shoot has been moved to an earlier date.

Sinas served as the PRO-Central Visayas director in 2018 and 2019.

CFBJ and PRO-Central Visayas’s shoot-for-a-cause also partnered with the Office of the Presidential Assistant for the Visayas. (PR)
