“Tonight, let us remember all those who have imparted knowledge to us. Those are the people, apart from your parents who have helped you reach this very moment, this very day, this life. So raise your glasses to the people who have inspired hope, ignited our imaginations and instilled in us a love of life and learning.” as 2014 JCI Ortigas President, Fitz Geraldine Pabalan, ended her welcome remarks.

Guests were serenaded by no less than the Concert King Martin Nievera, Asia’s Songbird Regine Velasquez-Alcasid, and broadway sensation Jenine Desiderio.

The event auctioned off masterpieces of 2006 TOYM awardee and world-class brass sculptor Michael Cacnio, and award-winning sculptor Juan Sajid Imao. Auctioned off alongside these reputable pieces were the works of Filipino artists—Maestro Angel Cacnio, Jun Martinez, Menchu Arandilla, Al Perez, and Dr. Ton Raymundo. These works were the yields of that night’s on-the-spot painting session.

“We are very proud to be the broadband of choice among the topnotch citizens of our country. Tonight’s Charity Gala brought together outstanding local personalities to showcase Filipino excellence and talent. We feel honored to be part of such a world-class event,” said PLDT HOME marketing head Gary Dujali.
