Damosa lights up for Christmas in a meaningful way
Christmas in Davao.Yuletide Season is in full swing as lights are all around one of Davao’s busiest business districts, Damosa. Damosa Land lit up its impressive 42-feet Christmas tree that stands tall in the middle of Damosa Business Center. No less than Cong. Tony Boy Floirendo, Jr., Chairman of the Anflo Group of Companies, led the light-up ceremony together with Ricky Floirendo, Anflocor Senior Vice President, and Cary Lagdameo, Vice President of Damosa Land, Inc.
The Christmas tree lighting has been a 5 year tradition in Damosa. It started in 2010 when the famous Davao landmark, the Malayan-inspired Damosa Building in the junction of Lanang and Mamay Road, mounted its first huge Christmas tree to signal the Christmas season in Damosa District. On the following year, the main Christmas tree transferred to Damosa Business Center where it is presently located.
Shining lights of mixed red and warm white make up this structure which emanated from the concept of the Senior Vice President of Anflo Group and Creative Director of the renowned Tadeco Livelihood Mariciris Floirendo-Brias. With over 10,000 light bulbs lighting up 1,500 balls and a roof light LED star on top, this Christmas tree brings amusement to the district’s patrons and visitors.
Damosa Land, Inc. made this year’s Christmas tree lighting extra special and meaningful by inviting the children from Field of Dreams Charity Foundation, Pag-Amoma Children’s Development Foundation and Padre Pio’s House for Children to a night of fun and sharing. DLI together with the Don Antonio Floirendo Foundation treated the children to dinner and hosted games with the help of McDonald’s Damosa. UP Mindanao Koro Kantahanay completed the yuletide feel with Christmas carols. Experience christmas in Davao City.
For Cary Lagdameo, the momentous occasion is all about thanksgiving. And giving thanks is all about giving back.
“This night is really all about our special guests tonight and these are the children that you see here. We hope that you would visit us as this Christmas tree will be lit every night. This is a sign of our gratitude to you,” said Cary.
Damosa District is a growing commercial hub where corporate offices are located in synergy with restaurants and lifestyle shops, bringing together business and leisure in one spot.
