True to its tradition of having the longest Christmas celebration on Philippine television, TV5 officially welcomed the Yuletide Season at the start of the BER months with a Parol Lighting Ceremony held in TV5 Novaliches on September 1. Making this Christmas more meaningful and special is the 10th Anniversary celebration of Alagang Kapatid Foundation, Inc. (AKFI) as represented by the Foundation’s beneficiary communities in Sablayan Island, Sorsogon and Bucay, Abra who also displayed their own TV5 Parol.
Present during the TV5 Parol Lighting Ceremony were Cignal TV and TV5 President and CEO Robert P. Galang, Media5 COO Dino M. Laurena, and Alagang Kapatid Foundation Executive Director Menchie Silvestre.
According to Galang, TV5 is set to bring joy and hope to Kapatids all across the country.
“Alam natin na ang Pasko ang pinakamasaya, pinaka-inaabangan at pinakamahalagang selebrasyon sa mga Pilipino, bata man o matanda. Ngayon, ang Pasko din ang nagdadala ng liwanag at ligaya kahit sa ano pa mang sakuna o kahit na tayo ay nasa gitna ng kahit anong problema. At makakaasa po kayong lahat na ang TV5 ay nandirito ngayong Kapaskuhan para magdala ng saya at pag-asa sa ating mga Kapatid,” Galang said.
Now symbolically lit to be a shining beacon of hope this Christmas season, the TV5 Parol will serve as a constant inspiration for the Network and all Kapatid viewers across the nation to spread the joy of giving and embrace the spirit of camaraderie in this merriest season of all.
In celebration of its 10th anniversary this year, the Alagang Kapatid Foundation has also prepared a special treat for Kapatid viewers this Christmas with 10 inspirational stories from the Foundation’s beneficiary communities across the country, soon to air on TV5.
Welcome the joyous season of the year with the symbolic TV5 Parol – together with the communities of Sablayan Island, Sorsogon and Bucay, Abra – and be reminded that as long as there is Christmas, there is hope.
