Noel Bazaar gives back to its beneficiaries
From the success of the 16th Noel Bazaar event last year, the Philippines’ longest-running shopping event gives back to its beneficiaries.
Mayose Gozon-Bautista, Cut Unlimited Inc’s president and organizer of the Noel Bazaar, handed a check donation to Inquirer’s president and CEO Sandy Prieto Romualdez.
There were three runs of the bazaar held in three venues — SMX Convention Center and World Trade Center in Pasay, and Filinvest Tent in Alabang, in November and December last year.
Proceeds will be given to the Inquirer Foundation to support its scholarship and livelihood programs.
In addition, part of the donation will be given to Gifts and Graces Foundation.
The Inquirer has continued to help its most-treasured newsboys through a scholarship program.
For more than 20 years, there were over 1,000 newsboy graduates from preselected schools that have received monthly grants from the Inquirer.
The Inquirer also supports its “newsmen’s needs” by providing pedicabs for their everyday journey in the streets.
The pedicabs are given to select and dedicated newsmen who have been serving the company for many years.
