Plaza Marcela, a beloved shopping center named after the Alturas Group of Companies (AGC) family matriarch, recently celebrated its 26th anniversary by organizing an outreach program for disadvantaged children in Bohol. The event was part of AGC’s golden anniversary festivities, marking the group’s efforts in serving the people and uplifting lives.
The department store is one of the subsidiaries of AGC which includes Island City Mall, Alturas Mall, and Marcela Farms. It has been providing quality products and services to Boholanos for over two decades.
For the celebration, Plaza Marcela organized a free medical consultation along with an art workshop led by Sylvia Gonser, a member of the Baji Arts Collective Group in Bohol.
Around a hundred children from Brgy. Cogon joined the event, which introduced the young ones to the different primary colors and the art of mixing paints. They used recycled circular piggy banks as their canvas, promoting the importance of recycling and creativity.
Additionally, the kids were treated to lunch and snacks, and engaged in games, adding more fun and excitement to the activity. The program concluded with the announcement and awarding of the top ten promising artists and the distribution of gift packs, providing a memorable experience and a token of appreciation for the children’s participation.
“We are delighted to celebrate our 26th anniversary with the children, as we strongly believe that providing opportunities for them to learn and create contributes to the overall development of the community. We remain committed to giving back to the Boholanos by offering services and events that cater to their needs and interests,” said Ms. Mary Grace Bernaldez, Sr. Supervisor of Alturas Corporate Marketing.
As an expression of gratitude to the continuous support of the Boholanos, Plaza Marcela will also be offering promos that shoppers will surely enjoy, such as the Grand Anniversary Blowout. Four winners of P50,000 each and one winner of P100,000 are drawn every month. The second draw will be on June 24, 2023 at Island City Mall.
Moreover, an Alturas Night will be held in celebration of the Saulog festival’s Maoy sa Mayo on May 1 at CPG Sports Complex in Tagbilaran. It will feature The Juans, Adie and Bandang Lapis.
