Red Char­ity Gala; Ang Pagdiri­wang: An An­nual Cel­e­bra­tion of the Best of the Filipino Spirit; 2018 El­e­gant Filip­inas com­mit­tee

The an­nual Red Char­ity Gala (RCG) has grown in leaps and bounds since its first stag­ing, and co-chairs Kaye Tinga and Tessa Pri­eto-Valdes have been sin­cerely grate­ful for the grow­ing num­ber of spon­sors and sup­port­ers they gather each year. The 2017 event had the high­est num­ber of at­ten­dees in RCG’s his­tory, with Manila’s most stylish denizens flock­ing to the Grand Ball­room of Shangri-La at the Fort to watch Joey Sam­son’s el­e­gant de­signs grace the run­way.

This year, the spot­light will be on in-de­mand fash­ion de­signer Rajo Lau­rel’s 100-piece Ar­chi­pel­ago col­lec­tion, a mean­ing­ful ex­po­si­tion on con­tem­po­rary Filipino style. The evening is also a nod to his il­lus­tri­ous ca­reer as he cel­e­brates 25 years in the fash­ion in­dus­try. “It is through this that I try to find a tan­gi­bil­ity and ra­tio­nale into what it is to be a Filipino artist in our time,” Lau­rel says. Pre­sented by BENCH and co-spon­sored by Me­ga­world, Sun Life, and Globe, the 10th an­niver­sary gala is set to take place on 27 Oc­to­ber at the Mar­riott Grand Ball­room. Beneficiaries this year in­clude Philip­pine Red Cross, As­sump­tion HS ’81 Foun­da­tion, and sev­eral other char­i­ties.
