Nagtipid kasi: Lee Debuque misses awards ceremony for Banaag festival
She settled for a livestream to watch the awards ceremony.
Mayor Nathalie Ann Debuque thought it would be best to stay home rather than fly to Cagayan de Oro City to witness the Pearl Awards. She just sent one representative from the Anilao municipal hall to head there, as they had no budget and had a busy schedule herself.
Had she known they will win big, then she would have made sure to be there.
“We didn’t fly to Cagayan de Oro for the culmination program of the Pearl Awards (no budget & busy schedule), so we had to settle for Facebook live. We wouldn’t have imagined that by the end of the evening, Banaag Festival will be hailed as the GRAND WINNER for the Best Tourism Event (Festival) – Municipal Category. Pangibabaw Anilao!,” the young Debuque shared.
