Companies and brands under the Gokongwei group and humanitarian organization World Vision recently brought 200 children from Mandaluyong to Robinsons Movieworld in Robinsons Galleria for a bit of end-of- summer enjoyment.
Robinsons Movieworld treated the elementary school kids to a special screening of the hit Pinoy animated film “Dayo”. The young guests snacked on Ministop Siopao, Hot Loops Donuts and Universal Robina Corporation’s (URC) Juicy Jelly as they enjoyed the movie with employees and Management Trainees of the Gokongwei group. Prior to the movie, The Children’s Library (TCL) held games and gave away various prizes to the boys and girls. The Gokongwei group also presented the children with gifts courtesy of Cebu Pacific, Robinsons Department Store, Toys ‘R Us, Robinsons Supermarket and Sun Cellular as well as URC goodie bags filled with Roller Coaster, Taquitos, Pretzels Stix, Wafrets Stix, Presto Milk Cookies, Starfruits and Tealicious.
The children were delighted as fluffy colorful guests joined in their fun: The Children’s Library’s “Booknoy” and Toys ‘R Us’ “Geoffrey” the Giraffe.
“Our partnership with the Gokongwei group has been ongoing for some years now,” said World Vision’s Direct Marketing Associate, Marmie Liquigan. “Children from our project areas look forward to this particular event every year because they really enjoy the movie, games, mascots and, most of all, the loads of gifts they receive.”
“For the past four years, the Gokongwei group, through its various business units, has been actively supporting World Vision’s mission to help children maximize their potentials,” said Nic L. Lim, JG Summit Holdings’ SVP for Corporate Human Resources. “This event gives underprivileged school children the chance to play, have fun and act like kids before the school work begins… that is all part of growth and development.”
