The Catholic Media Network, Upu Mana Catholic Television, is $45,000 better off today thanks to the angelic voices of opera stars who made last week’s Opera Under the Stars a huge success.

Coupled with the hard work by the concert’s organisers, fans and supporters are already looking forward to the next event.

Yesterday at Mulinu’u, the money was presented to Monsignor Etuale Etuale by the Chairman of the Organising Committee, Faleomavaega Vincent Fepulea’i.

Mr. Bainimarama has also tried to heal the racial divisions which have blighted the former British colony since independence in 1970.

Monsieur Etuale thanked the organising committee and acknowledged the assistance, saying it will go a long way to improve the services provided by the station to all the Catholics in Samoa.

At the moment, he said the station only has one good camera and with the money, they will look to buy new cameras.

“The service provided by the station could be better and this is why we requested for financial assistance from you,” Monsignor Etuale told the Committee.

Faleomavaega said the concert’s organisers were pleased to be able to help improve the station.

The initial fundraising idea behind this year’s Opera Under the Stars event was for the renovations to the St. Therese Retreat and Resort.

However, when a request came from the church for Upu Mana television, they decided to donate to the station.

Faleomavaega expressed thanks to all the sponsors, supporters and individuals who made the event possible. He also thanked the stars including Daphne Collins, Isabella Moore, Taunoa Filimoehala, Juan Kim, Benson Wilson and Derek Wendt.

A member of the committee, Kereti Ah Liki, said they were extremely happy to be able to give to the church.
