Winford Manila Resort and Casino (WMRC), in partnership with the Philippine Amusement & Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR), hosted on Monday the third Paskong Pasasalamat mula sa WINFORD at PAGCOR, an annual Christmas gift-giving and meal-sharing activity for the less fortunate citizens of neighboring barangays.
In attendance were no less than a thousand residents of Santa Cruz and neighboring barangays—up from 500 attendees last year—to receive their gifts and enjoy a yuletide meal courtesy of WMRC and PAGCOR.
The beneficiaries of the WMRC-PAGCOR community outreach initiative were identified and selected by their respective barangay captains, with whom both proponents have maintained a close and healthy relationship since the luxury casino hotel opened its doors to the public in 2017.
In attendance were WMRC President & Chief Operating Officer Mr. Jeff Evora; WMRC Vice President Attorney King Reyno; PAGCOR Chairman & Chief Executive Officer Andrea Domingo; and PAGCOR Branch Manager Mr. Jethro Chancoco.
“Winford Manila & PAGCOR feel a debt of gratitude to the local community for the unwavering support they have showed us since we started our operations three years ago,” said Evora. “Through Paskong Pasasalamat, we are happy to share our blessings with the less fortunate members of the neighborhood in the hope that it helps brighten their Christmas season.”
Attendees were also treated to a live performance by Psalm of David Harmonic Orchestra who serenaded them with catchy renditions of their favorite Christmas carols.
