The three-day event last June 24-26, 2022, was a collaboration of conscientious work of tapestries from philanthropic sponsors like Cristina Yip from Love and Styles, Jessie Maloles, Event Director Arnold Larrobis Alvarez, and Renée Salud. The current manager of Waterfront, Mr. Bryan Yves Lasala has been generously supportive throughout the event as he conveys from his heartfelt speeches and leadership that integrity. Together with his marketing manager, Paolo Rosello, the ambience of it all makes the array of models Abby and Renee of GLAM Model House, Romechelle Escrin, Anne Barker, Katrina, Eloisa Jaud, Leren Mae M. Bautista, Jehza Huelar Simon, Arnel Calugay, Daniel along with other prime models from Davao City and Metro Manila an ecstasy beyond words! Captured in candid photos such as shown, beauty is authenticity, confidence, goodness of heart exuding in one’s character and countenance.
The closed-door press conference on the 1st day of the said event with the initial cutting of ribbon ceremony and introduction of all the participants had made the 1st day of value as the visit to The House of Hope Foundation for Cancer patients brought tears, songs, prayers and benevolence of finances, foods and friendly conversations amongst the visitors and residents hit home. The treats to Marilog, Dusit Thani, Matina, shopping Davao’s goodies, and even visiting private homes for fellowship groups of guests showed hearts of prowess amongst the fashion world. Mama Renée Salud explicitly shared why this event featured wedding gowns. That is to cater any one’s dream of walking on the aisle someday. On the Gala night, June 25, 2022, that became a reality and so much more as the collection of Ms. Yip were also introduced together with all the other fashion icons. Ms. Yip from Davao opened the Gala Night with her best intricate designs on her beautiful and handsome models. Her RTW collections astound the audience! Ms. Yip’s extraordinary extravagance embodies love and style indeed!
From the moment of pledges during the Gala night, Waterfront prepared an exquisite cocktail buffet, Santa Cruzan, as a Filipino feast lit hope into a new world after the 2-year lockdown due to the Covid pandemic. The next morning after that night, the event was closing up with a banqueting breakfast prepared by Waterfront with the participants who were checked in. The goal for the event is to support the continuous treatment for kids with cancer in the house of hope foundation, showcase the latest product line of Love & Styles and Renee Salud’s Collection and promote Waterfront Insular Hotel Davao as a premier wedding and events destination.
Waterfront is the best caterer for any event that you can have in Davao City. May it be a wedding soiree, anniversary commemoration, or even an elegant birthday, Waterfront can satisfy your wishes and bring your dreams to life. While the seas at Waterfront roars with gentle hushed kisses off shores of “let it be or so” or “sana maulit/sana all” … Oh stylish! Love in on the air. MABUHAY!
