2019 VALENTINE SERENADE
VALENTINE IS FOR EVERYONE AT THE SUNSHINE PLACE
At the Sunshine Place, Valentine is for everyone as it celebrates the love month with art, music, and sharing.
The Senior Hub puts some Heart to Art with a silent auction of the works of its acrylic painting students currently on exhibit; while their mentor, Art Association of the Philippines President Fidel Sarmiento, has his own He-Art exhibit at the center’s Happy Garden Café.
Proceeds from the auction and exhibit will be for the benefit of the San Lorenzo Ruiz Home for the Elderly, which has been managed by the Little Sisters of the Poor since 2012. The mission of the congregation of French nuns in Manila is to give respect and dignity to the elderly.
The Sunshine Place also treated its members to a Valentine Serenade featuring the UP-Singing Ambassadors with Dr. Eduardo Manguiat as conductor, and Aliw Awards Hall of Fame Awardee and ASEAN Symphony Orchestra Concert Master MerJohn Lagaya. Students from the Little Ballerina School of Dance also performed during the celebration.
The UP - Singing Ambassadors with Dr. Eduardo Manguiat as their conductor wowed the guests with their world class performance during the Valentine Serenade at the Sunshine Place.
World Class Violinist and Aliw Awards Hall of Fame Awardee MerJohn Lagaya serenaded guests with heartwarming love songs and popular medleys at the Valentine Serenade event.
