Resorts World Manila Spotlights 12 Frontliner Heroes, Rewards Them With a Staycation Package

Twelve valiant and hardworking frontliners have been chosen as winners of Resorts World Manila’s (RWM) Who’s Your Frontliner Hero photo contest that was launched during the National Frontliners Month in June. The public was encouraged to shout out their appreciation for their frontliner family and friends for the chance to win them the break they deserve.

The twelve winners will each receive a 3D/2N staycation package from a partner hotel of RWM including Marriott Hotel Manila, Hilton Manila, Sheraton Manila Hotel, Holiday Inn Express Manila Newport City, Belmont Hotel Manila and Savoy Hotel Manila. The winners work in the frontlines not only from the medical field, but also in public service, media, security, and fashion. Their nominators in turn receive F&B vouchers.
