The Quezon Tayabas Association (QTA), one of the most enduring civic groups in the country, recently celebrated its 95th founding anniversary at the Grand Ballroom of Sofitel Philippine Plaza.

The event’s highlight was the rigodon de honor led by QTA Joanna Suarez and Ronnie Padillo.  All the women participants outdid themselves in their Filipiniana fineries, while the males wore the traditional barong. The rigodon was well choreographed by Dala Pia and Budjing Danao.

Seen at the plush event were BUHAY Party List Rep. Lito Atienza, Pangasinan (3rd District) Rep. Rosemarie “Baby” Arenas, COOP NATCO Party List Rep. Tony Bravo, AGBIAG Party List Rep. Michelle Antonio, AASENSO Party List Rep. Ted Montoro, Iligan (Lone District) Rep. Fred Siao, former Presidential  Political Adviser Francis Tolentino, former Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque, and Fr.  Jerry Juarez from Quezon, who gave the invocation.

This year’s beneficiary was the Quezon Medical Center. The QTA gave the hospital some 200 much-needed mattresses.

The other highlight was the presentation of the QTA’s Lakambini 2018 muse Syndey Padillo, who was escorted by Kiel Quimundo.

Cheers, QTA for helping Quezon Medical Center with their needs!
