Toward the right, a huge space was carved into a concert ground where a huge parachute tent was set up to house about 600 party-goers, and a concert stage was prepared for the world-class Filipino performers who were guests in the event.
This huge space was also used to put a spotlight on the Service Awardees, who are employees who have been loyally serving the company for the past five, ten, 15, 20, and 25 years.
Apart from this event, pocket raffles were conveniently tucked in between programs to offer the audience their much-deserved and highly anticipated cash prizes ranging from 500 pesos up to 100,000 pesos!
