A night of glitz and glamour engulf the halls of Limeketkai Luxe Hotel last Novermber 22, 2018 as one of the biggest gathering of aesthetic consultants in Northern Mindanao held its annual fundraising gala dubbed as “Soiree 2018”.
The event was spearheaded by Frank Tongco, along with Regine Nailga-Gerloff, Len-len Anaya, Niko Go, Hale Demetrio, Amabel Dano, Donna Jadap , Jay M. Garcia, and hosted by Ian Nuer, Manuel Tan, and Christer Kim.
Soiree isn’t just a time where makeup artists gather and celebrate a fruitful year, but also a time for them to give back to the community. This year’s proceed beneficiary is St. Joseph’s Golden Home Foundation Inc., (Home for the Elderly) a non-profit charitable foundation which serves as a home to indigent and abandoned older Filipino men and women, aged 65 years and older. Clemente Fernandez Extension – 18th St., Nazareth, this city.
This time around it was bigger and bolder as ever – as it not only featured talented local makeup artists from Cagayan de Oro, but also had well-known HMUAs from other regions in Mindanao who also supported the fundraising gala.
Although they may be their respective competitors in the industry, it is always a pleasure to see a sense of camaraderie and mutual respect resonating around the venue sharing one passion.
New comers in the industry were also welcomed during the festive occasion sharing laughter, ideas as well as mingling with other artists.
The event also featured dance and song performances, a catwalk, and contests with special prizes courtesy of Bellemoda Make-up and Beauty Lounge by Liane Bastareche.
