RLC gets into the Christmas spirit
BUSINESS CHIC - Johnny Litton (The Philippine Star) - December 10, 2018 - 12:00am

Robinsons Land Corp. (RLC), led by president and CEO Frederick Go, is getting into the holiday spirit with the Giant Lantern Caravan held at Robinsons Malls nationwide. This year, the first leg of the caravan was held at Robinsons Galleria where mall- goers enjoyed various types of lanterns on display as well as special performances at the mall’s activity area. The caravan then made its way to Robinsons Galleria Cebu, Robinsons Magnolia and Robinsons Place Antipolo. One of the highlights of the festival is the annual Giant Lantern Competition where participating barangays exhibit their biggest, brightest and most colorful Christmas parols. The Giant Lantern Caravan is an exhibit of mini-replicas of the giant parols from the city of San Fernando, Pampanga, the Christmas capital of the Philippines. Kudos to Robinsons Land Corp. for making Christmas extra special for Filipinos! The Giant Lantern Competition 2018 will be held at Robinsons Starmills Pampanga on December 15, and the celebration continues with nightly exhibitions of giant parols at the mall on December 16-21, December 25-30 and January 1-2.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas as Robinsons Galleria, under the seasoned leadership of Robinsons Land Corp. (RLC) president and CEO Frederick Go, recently lit up its giant Christmas tree. Standing 32-feet tall, Robinsons Galleria’s gigantic European fir tree is the perfect backdrop for Instagram-worthy moments with family and friends this holiday season. In true festive spirit, the Orchestra of the Filipino Youth played iconic OPM Christmas songs and Robinsons Malls also invited kids from the Makabata School Foundation, Inc. who received early presents from RLC. Robinsons Malls also launched its newest project, The Gift of heART, which aims to help the underprivileged members of society by selling donated artworks from well- known and budding Filipino artists at special prices. All of the proceeds from the exhibit will be given to The Gift of Change beneficiaries. It truly is the season of giving! Congratulations to Robinsons Land Corp. for a successful tree lighting ceremony!
