fond farewells

This year’s annual George Washington Ball, the grandest American community event in the country and a longstanding Manila tradition, served as a farewell dinner for two distinguished expatriates: departing US Ambassador Sung Yong Kim and outgoing chairman of the ball, Ricky Sobreviñas. The Ball again held a silent auction to fund scholarships for indigent Amerasians and Filipinos. It sold off stays at the luxurious Balesin resort and the Chairman’s Suite of the Marriott Hotel, and raised PhP350,000 towards the scholarship. The Ball also awarded select members of society, such as Metrobank Foundation President Chito Sobrepeña, Skin Magical’s Ghie Pangilinan, and Chair and CEO of Udenna Corp Dennis Uy. Great entertainment was provided by Prince Ronnie Love of the Temptations; Maria Laroco, UK X-Factor finalist 2018; and Arnel Pineda.…
