PwC Philippines held its annual Christmas Party on 12 December 2018 at the SMX Aura -SMX Convention Center.
Over a thousand people from the Makati office and friends of the firm celebrated an evening at PwC High, the fictional high school where everyone dressed up as their chosen character (popular ones, nerds, athletes, faculty, and so on).
This year’s Christmas Party Committee, headed by Consulting Principal Veronica Bartolome , organized the event. Party highlights include:
- PwC Philippines Chairman and Senior Partner Alex Cabrera gave a rousing opening number with some of the talented dancers from different lines of service.
- Fifty-one (51) awards for ten, 15, 20, 25, and 30 years of service were given out that evening. Alex, recognized for his 30 years of service, led the awardees. He is joined in that category by General Office Services Administrative Assistant II Luderic Pacheco. Former partners and their spouses were among the guests, notably two former senior partners: Tammy Lipana and Joe Florento, who jointly gave Alex his service award.
- Performing groups competed in “Curtain Call”, where talents such as singing, dancing, and playing of musical instruments were showcased. Each team chose one public school as their prospective beneficiary. The winning team will receive their prize and a matching amount from the firm to support their planned corporate responsibility activity for their chosen school.
- Best Dressed Awards and raffle prizes were given away, and after-party dancing to DJ music capped the event.
