PostSubject: Fundraising event held for Dick Israel   Wed Jul 28, 2010 4:53 pm



MANILA, Philippines – Celebrities held a fundraising event for veteran actor Dick Israel, who suffered a stroke last month that left half of his body paralyzed and affected his speech.

The event, held Monday night at Merk’s Bar, was attended by Israel’s close friends from the entertainment industry including Richard Merk, Phillip Salvador, Tirso Cruz III, Boots Anson Roa, Bobot Mortiz and Karylle.

Mowelfund and other organizations from the industry also provided support.

The money raised during the event would be used for Israel’s rehabilitation.

The family of Israel said they were grateful to celebrities who attended and supported it.

In his previous interview, Israel recounted that he was still able to shoot one scene for television series "Magkano ang Iyong Dangal" before his stroke. He said the taping was done in the afternoon.

"Record heat noong araw na yon, Sobrang init talaga. Pati ang pantalon ko ay umiinit na sa sobrang init... nakauwi pa ako at nakatulog pa ako," he said.

He said he suddenly woke up gasping for air and when he stood up, he fainted and was rushed to a hospital.
