Tomorrow, December 19, 2012, the Soccsksargen Bloggers, Mindanao’s Funnest Blogging Group will be celebrating their Annual Christmas Party.
This informal group has gone a long way since it was founded in January 2008 by 5 well-meaning bloggers who wanted nothing more than to give a balanced view of General Santos City in particular and the whole region in general through more positive and development blog posts.
Now, almost five years later, they already number more than fifty coming from all over South Central Mindanao, with a good number located somewhere else but have remained citizens of the region by heart. Today, googling about GenSan and the rest of the region will most often lead you to the informative articles on tourism, business, entertainment and dining, among other similar topics written by these dedicated young men and women.
Their Christmas party tomorrow which promises to be fun and crazy (since GandaEverSoMuch’s Orman Manansala will be hosting it) will be held at Manny Pacquiao’s Roadhaus Hotel and is made possible by the generosity of their perennial event partner and #1 telecoms company in the country, SMART.
Restaurant Consultant Cathy Bolodo, of What’s On In GenSan is the main party organizer so expect a lot of freebies and shwags courtesy of her friends from the local tourism and hospitality sectors.
Incidentally, all attendees are expected to wear their most awesome ‘STATEMENT SHIRTS” and the best ones will be awarded with exciting prizes from our friends from SM Supermarket GenSan and Starbucks GenSan and many more.
The theme of the party “We Blog. Therefore We Partey.” is inspired by SMART‘s new battlecry which is, “LIVE MORE”. With this Yuletide celebration of some of the island’s best and brightest bloggers who sure know how to have fun, to that we add, “…and PARTY MORE”.
