GIVING BACK TO THE HEROES OF OUR LIVES
Northern Living and Estancia joined forces to give urban dads a day to remember
It’s a scientific fact that we use more of our father’s DNA despite inheriting an equal amount of genes from mom and dad, according to a study by the UNC Health Care and UNC School of Medicine. So, for most of our charming traits and amicable qualities, we can give due credit to our fathers. What better way to express our heartfelt gratitude to fatherhood worldwide than to commemorate a day especially for them. Last June 18, Father’s Day was celebrated at Capitol Commons Park. Presented by Ortigas & Company and Estancia at Capitol Commons, and copresented by Northern Living, the event was meant to bring festivities and cheer to our father figures.
It was a no-brainer. Estancia’s open-air space provided the ideal setting for Father’s Day. The first premiere mall of Ortigas & Company, Estancia lies in the heart of Capitol Commons, an integral nucleus in Pasig City, acting as the retail component of the integrated-use development. Wellcurated brands and established dining destinations are spread throughout the space, offering convenience and class in a relaxed atmosphere.
Having allotted an open space for the special day that was decorated much like a fair ground, complete with outdoor games and a pop-up kids’ section. Families were treated to live performances by Vince Lahorra Quartet and Dayaw. The scent of grilled meats wafted through the air from tenants like Tatang’s Boneless Lechon, Great Burger Truck, Mad Mustard, and the like. On the other hand, refreshments and beer were served all day to let the relentless family man kick back a bit and relax.
Families were able to treat their fathers to some well-deserved relaxation and bonding over food and drinks.
