On 15th of August 2020, the Merry Men of JCI Mandaue held their first-ever virtual fellowship and kamustahan dubbed as MANDAUE NIGHTS.
The event was fostered to ensure that the JCI community still breathes life and hope amidst the current global health crisis.
The event was a bevy of virtual shenanigans that included a love problem-solving segment, dubbed as “Tambag Alang sa Gugma”; a “Fast Talk” segment patterned from a popular showbiz oriented talk show and “Mandaue’s Got Talent” which was intended to showcase the talents of the attendees and tons of virtual and online games to entertain the viewers.
Raffles made the segments also very exciting as prizes from sponsors abound the whole fellowship night. The virtual fellowship also witnessed a mini concert from its very special guest, Anton Mansueto of “Glynis and Anton” – Cebu’s most sought after acoustic duo. It was not just the highlight; it was also the best part of the night as guests were able to sing their hearts out with their most requested songs plus today’s music hits.
The five equally charming hosts delighted the audience with their charisma, looks and comical demeanor consisted of Merry Men – Brad Dablos, Edmar Dionson, JM Bercede Yap, Sam Taguibao and JCI Immediate Past President Rod Limpot Jr.
Special visitors also added amusement to the fellowship as our sister chapters Womandaue, Boholana Kisses, Bohol Limestone and Bohol Chocolate Hills also joined the revelry. Presidents from other chapters joined the fun as well.
Truly it was one great night with almost 4 hours of virtual fun, food, drinks and music as we all celebrated life the ‘better normal’ way.
