National Camella Day 2018 held in Iloilo
To celebrate 40 years in business, Philippine real estate giant Camella held four grand National Camella Day celebrations this year. In Iloilo, it was held at the Vista Mall in Oton last August 18, 2018.
National Camella Day
Camella is now 40 years old! And this year, they decided to have a month-long celebration throughout August by holding the National Camella Day 2018. This is to give thanks and to give back to the communities where Camella is present. Furthermore, it was a great chance for them to bring entertainment and good tidings to the locals.
But instead of just a day, four big celebrations were held in four key cities in the Philippines where there is a development by Vista Land.

Fun and Meaningful Activities
During the National Camella Day Iloilo, the day was opened with a mass followed by the formal opening ceremony. The event was headed by Camella executives, namely, Ms. Genevieve Gregorio (Visayas & Palawan Superviso, Globalland); Mr. Michael Mayuga (Mall Head); Ms. Lily Donasco (Camella Visayas & Palawan Cluster Head); Ms. Paula Agront (Crest BOD, Camella Savannah); Ms. Henny Lenore Cagampang – Elman (Camella Condo Homes Head), and Ms. Avic Amarillo (Media Relations Head, Camella).
There was a motorcade, a variety show, talent contests, games, raffle draw, and a mini concert. Lots of prizes and gift packs were given away.
But perhaps the most important part of the program was an outreach. A total of 200 students from Abilay Sur Elementary School and Mandurriao Elementary School were the beneficiaries. They were all brought to Vista Land where they were treated to a magic show by a local magician and gift giving from Vista Land subsidiaries.
Additionally, students of Georgia Academy also gave out gifts to the kids.
All Day Variety Show
Throughout the day, it was a variety show of sorts as local artists also took turns performing. Among the guests were balladeer Ethan Loukas, singer Stephanie Gemao, and heartthrob Jeck Estoce of MKF Talent. Headz Up Dance Group also gave a performance.
Sales events were also held. Camella representatives from different provinces of Iloilo, Bacolod City, and even Palawan were present. Special discounts were given for reservations made during the National Camella Day event.
Dance numbers by local artists were a big hit among the crowd.
There were two talent shows held during the National Camella Day. Young people got to show their talents in singing and dancing and also got the chance to win cash prizes.
