Abitare Internazionale X Red Charity Gala

Abitare Internazionale, a leading modern and contemporary European furniture shop in Makati City, has been part of the auction sponsors of the Red Gala since the start. Their auction pieces are always highly bid for.

To celebrate their 19th year in the business, interior designing sisters Filaine Tan and Jeanne Wee recently teamed up with Chef Carlos Garcia of The Black Pig to host a thanksgiving lunch with a wonderful mix of architects, interiors designers, clients and representatives from the German and Spanish Embassies. Abitare will be auctioning off a furniture piece at the Red Gala this October.

On the Canton Road to Red Charity Gala 2016

October 8 seems so far away but with time passing by so quickly, the Red Charity Gala will be here before long. Co-chairs Kaye Tinga and I are full-steam ahead with the preparations for our annual charity event for the benefit of Red Cross and the Assumption HS 81 Foundation.

We met with Shangri-La at The Fort GM John Rice at their newly opened Canton Road Restaurant, and finalized our contract. With John were his director of events management Matthias Emperhoff and the entire marketing team, of whom director of communications Lesley Tan has been a part of the planning of the Red Gala since our first ball in 2008.

It was fun to talk about the event details while gingerly using our chopsticks to enjoy Canton Road’s rich assortment of regional specialties and signature roast barbequed meat. The cuisine is from Huaiyang, the most prestigious cuisine in the Jiangsu province.

Canton Road’s main dining seats up to 88 persons at a time, with guests having a choice of dining at the center tables or tucked in plush couches. There are also eight private dining rooms, the biggest of which can seat up to 28 guests at a time.

Joining our lunch was Anna Sobrepeña, Lifestyle Asia’s editor in chief. Lifestyle Asia has been our lifestyle magazine partner for several years now. The magazine covers the charity side of the Gala as well as the generous guests and corporations that give back to society.
