MassKara in Manila

The Masskara Festival has always been a high-anticipated event in the City of Smiles, Bacolod.  Last October 18, 2014, Tapulanga Foundation brought the festival to Manila, giving Manileños a taste of the Masskara festivities.

“MassKara in Manila” was held in Strumm’s, Bel-air Village, Makati.  Guests enjoyed a sumptuous buffet dinner consisting of potato and tuna croquettes, buttered vegetables, Yang Chow fried rice, crispy pata, spicy beef casserole, pasta marinara, leche flan and, of course, Bacolod City’s famous blend of chicken inasal.  Talented young musicians, Clara and Sarah Benin, serenaded the guests during dinner.  Our masters of ceremonies, Dr. Jo-an Ledesma-Millonado and Dr. Rachel Saban-Leelin, got the crowd revved up with a Last Group Standing Tapulanga Trivia Game.  The guests were then given the ultimate MassKara experience with exhilarating and exciting performances by the Buganda Drum Beaters, Poi dancers Firechill and Kazee, singer Dr. Marienella Francisco-Mallari and the Speed Dance Company.  Finally, the guests sang and danced the night away with our live band performers, In Heat and Mulatto.

Proceeds of this fund raising dinner party will go to Tapulanga Foundation’s college scholarship program.

To all who supported MassKara in Manila, we would like to express our sincerest gratitude.  Madamo guid nga salamat!!!
