Last December 7, overseas Filipino families, BDO Kabayan Savings account holders, and SM shoppers were treated with a Christmas celebration like no other as BDO and SM Supermalls kicked off this year’s much awaited Pamaskong Handog at SM Seaside City Cebu.
Pamaskong Handog 2019 was a fun day at the mall filled with fun activities for BDO Kabayan Account Holders, and OFWs and their beneficiaries, who were entertained by celebrity guests Piolo Pascual, Kim Chiu, Ronnie Alonte, LoisaAndalio, Aegies, Jennie Gabriel, and Ate Gay.
SM and BDO always seek ways to treat overseas Filipinos and their families with opportunities to celebrate and make memories. While loved ones are abroad, the SM malls become another home for overseas Filipino families, where they can safely claim remittances, be entertained, shop, share a meal, and spend some quality time together.
“As a one-stop wonderland for everyday needs, the SM malls have become the third place of overseas Filipinos and their families after home and school, where relatives and friends gather to celebrate long-overdue reunions and meaningful reconnections,” shares Jonjon San Agustin, SM Supermalls VP for Marketing.
“As Christmas is the most important family occasion for Filipinos, we would like to give our kababayans a fun & entertaining Christmas celebration featuring the country’s most requested artists along with games & prizes. Every year, we look forward to organizing our PamaskongHandog event to bring smile to their faces as they are far away from home during this time of the year.” said Genie Gloria, Senior Vice President and Head of BDO Remittance.
Pamaskong Handog 2019 was made possible by BDO, SM Supermalls, and BDO Remit partners WorldRemit, MoneyGram, Western Union & Small World.
