Manila, Philippines – Christmas season is here, and Disney On Ice presents Mickey’s Super Celebration made it more magical for the Filipino community by opening its first official show at the Mall of Asia Arena last December 25, with a Charity Gala for different foundations
“In the past, it has been a tradition to open Disney On Ice shows with a Charity Gala that gives back to beneficiaries and communities we support. This year became more special as the celebration of Mickey Mouse’s 90th year coincides with SM’s 60th anniversary” said Mr. Herman Medina-Cue, Chief Operations Officer of SM Lifestyle Entertainment, Inc.
At the event, several beneficiaries of SM Cares, the CSR arm of SM Prime Holdings, were present, including – UNICEF, Child Haus, Cottolengo Pilipino, Baha Maria Children Center, White Cross Orphanage, Santisima Trinidad Orphanage, Chosen Children Foundation, and the Aeta Communitiy in Porac Pampanga to name a few.
“Through these charity events, we get to serve communities where we are present, especially the marginalized and indigent children, by giving them this once-in-a-lifetime experience” said Chito Bauzon, Assistant Vice President for CSR Marketing of SM Foundation.
Families enjoyed a spectacular event this year with new Disney On Ice segments. The show has become more interactive through its live hosts and their mousepad, plus the audiences’ opportunity to pick out their favorite outfits for Mickey and Minnie during the finale.
According to Arnel Gonzales, AVP for Operations of the Mall of Asia Arena, “Christmas is a season of giving, and we at the MOA Arena believe that the right avenue to spread the holiday cheer is through sharing the entertainment experience to the communities we support.” Since its run at the MOA Arena last 2016, the Disney On Ice Charity Gala was made as the first show of each season.
“We are happy to work together with our co-producer, FELD Entertainment, in bringing one-of-a-kind activities that we know would leave a lasting impression on our audiences” added Gonzales.
