It was a fun-filled day last August 10 as the Quality Care Group of Companies and its supporters successfully organized “Summer Saya 2019” in Edmonton.
Filipino-Albertans from Edmonton and neighboring towns came to join the one-day event that kicked off with Bingo games, followed by the much-awaited Drag Show and a lively performance by the Jess Valdez Switch Band to wind up the night.
Quality Care Group in coordination with Benjie Lindo Live Updates came up with a very festive atmosphere for the Filipino community as food were served courtesy of restaurant owners including the famous lechon.
The fiesta-like event was graced by MP Kelly McCauley and Filipino community organization leaders from Wetaskiwin, Leduc and Fort Saskatchewan who were welcomed by Quality Care Group HR manager Wilma Payne. Pinoy Roots Rondalla played the national anthems of the Philippines and Canada.
Quality Care Group co-owners and directors Kris Salumbides, Jesse Tallon and Jacob Christian, who surprised and wowed the crowd when they participated in the Drag Show, were very thankful for the support of the community who made the event a huge success.
Benjie Lindo, on the other hand, was grateful to all the sponsors, specially the volunteers who helped in the preparation, days before the event.
“We are glad that everyone had a great time,” said the Quality Care Group owners who also successfully organized a Family Day last year for the community.
