A sunny Friday was made even more beautiful by 86 of the most stunning women in the universe, together with reigning Miss Universe 2015, Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach.
Held at the elegant Rizal Ballroom of the Makati Shangri-La Hotel, the lunch was hosted by RJ Ledesma for Solar Entertainment. Also present were media partners from TV5 to GMA7 and ABS-CBN2 as well as non-media sponsors like PLDT, Smart Telecommunications, San Miguel Beer, Ginebra, Boysen Paints and the Makati Shangri-La.
It was attended by the top executives of the sponsors, Tourism Undersecretary Katherine de Castro, as well as Ilocos Norte Governor Chavit Singson. A long red carpet led to a multi layered stage that was filled by all the beauty queens dressed in their own unique attire. As each delegate walked in, one could feel the high energy and anticipation of everyone in the ballroom. It was a frenetically paced yet joyful affair as selfies, photos, live stream videos and interviews were done all at the same time. Speeches were made by Miss Universe 2015, Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach and the President of Solar Entertainment, Mr. Wilson Tieng. “The Miss Universe pageant has brought competitors of the local broadcasting world together to bring to the Philippines a world-class event and make it not just a reality but a raging success that will be proudly showcased across the globe” Tieng said.
The meet-and-greet luncheon concluded with a photo-op between the delegates and all present groups.
