MORE than a thousand elderly men and women from Pampanga recently enjoyed a grand Christmas party as the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR) held the fourth day of its Pamaskong Handog gift-giving event at the Pampanga High School in San Fernando City.

For the third consecutive year, PAGCOR chose as one of the beneficiaries of its annual gift-giving project the Federation of Senior Citizens of Pampanga, whose members converged at the school’s covered court to receive Yuletide goodies and have fun with celebrity guests who provided lively musical entertainment.

“We can’t thank PAGCOR enough, especially our kababayan, Ma’am Didi, for showing love to the senior citizens of Pampanga by hosting a really festive Christmas party for us for the third straight year. Minsan lang ang mga ganitong okasyon sa isang taon, pero hindi po matatawaran ang kasiyahang naidudulot nito sa amin,” said federation head Linda David, who expressed her gratitude to PAGCOR Chairman and CEO Andrea Domingo, a native of San Fernando City, for once more bringing joy to their members.

The elaborate event, which was hosted by Casino Filipino (CF) Angeles, was graced by PAGCOR Senior Vice President and Mabalacat City resident Edwin Bermudez, who represented Chairman Domingo.

“It has always been a pleasure for us to share our blessings not just with the underprivileged but with our elders whose simple joys include being treated to merry occasions like this,” he said.

Apart from the senior citizens of Pampanga, thousands more elderly individuals in Metro Manila are slated to benefit from PAGCOR’s gift-giving activity in the coming days.

The agency’s Pamaskong Handog this year kicked off last December 4. Over 13,000 individuals under the care of 30 institutions nationwide are expected to benefit from this undertaking.
