We could have danced all night

- Honey Jarque Loop - The Philippine Star

For the past 93 years, Casino Español de Cebu has celebrated “Dia de la Hispanidad” in commemoration of the feast day of Nuestra Señora del Pilar, Patroness of Spain. For the Hispanic communities all over the world, it is the time to remember and celebrate their ancestry and the multi-cultural heritage of their race.

At the reception line were the association’s board of directors led by its president Buddy Veloso, vice president Gabby Leyson, and his partner Tina Jordana, secretary Edgar Chiongbian and his wife Cely, treasurer David Chan and his wife Tess and director for social and cultural affairs Paco Jarque and his wife Monique.

Several ladies made a fashion statement in their outfits. Designer Tet Ko epitomized classic elegance in a beige lace dress while Josephine del Gallego, Ellen Zuluaga, Tess Chan, Maitina Borromeo and Susan Sala opted to wear definitive black dresses and gowns in varied chic styles.

Some of the dashing gentlemen in their impeccable tailored suits and exquisite embroidered barongs were Percy Llaban, Franz Ignacio, Ed Misa, Gilfer Alvarez, Mari Cañizares, Manol Larrañaga and Vic Torres.

The wonders of what one can do with yards upon yards of translucent fabric, which highlighted Spain’s national colors of red and yellow, were truly magical revelations that evening as they artistically complemented the centerpieces, fully decorated with a profusion of red roses.

The entertainment for the night was provided by On the Cover Band and Circle of 6 Band. The members and their guests danced all night. 

Viva España, mabuhay ang Pilipinas!
