Palawan is abuzz with news of a free concert on Saturday at the Puerto Princesa Coliseum with the stage performances of Paulo Avelino and TV comedian Pooh heading a cast of talents mimicking sensational local and international celebrities.
Billed “Bonggang Handog Pasasalamat,” the three-hour live event forms part of the multi-event celebration of Palawan Pawnshop’s 30th anniversary. The show will dramatize in song and dance milestones of Palawan Pawnshop.
Joining the troupe of performers are Palawan Express Pera Padala comic endorsers Jack Falcis, Mao Leongson and Lan Diana, who are featured as ongoing characters in the money remittance brand’s television commercials.
Preceeding the free show was last Sunday’s “Takbo Palaweño” comprising 10K, 5K, and 3K benefit running events in Puerto Princesa. The anniversary event series will be capped by a gala night on Aug. 17 to recognize employees who have made vital contributions to the success of the company.
Palawan Pawnshop was founded in 1985 by spouses Bobby and Angie Castro to help cash-strapped folks who need to pay bills.
It started as a lone pawnshop along Puerto Princesa’s Malvar St. In succeeding years, however, the number of outlets grew beyond Palawan. The service is now available in over 3,000 outlets nationwide.
