OH YES, IT’S JOHNNY! - Johnny Litton (The Philippine Star) - June 23, 2018 - 12:00am

International luxury brand Jewelmer, under the seasoned leadership of group chairman Manuel Cojuangco and group president and CEO Jacques Branellec, invited an exclusive group of pearl-loving ladies at an afternoon tea event held at the brand’s main office in Makati City. The ladies were in for an extraordinary treat as Jewelmer EVP and deputy CEO Jacques Christophe Branellec gave a pearl talk, wherein he discussed the careful process of cultivating the well-loved South Sea pearl—from breeding the oysters, to waiting years to be able to harvest a single pearl, and the world-class craftsmanship by Filipino designers behind every single Jewelmer piece. Also present were Jewelmer vice president for retail sales Euniza Capili, executive manager for retail sales Tess Catedral and communications and events manager Penelope Uy, who were glad to explain in detail how each piece of jewelry was created. With glasses of champagne in hand, everyone in attendance felt the hospitality of Jewelmer and the privilege to marvel at the stunning pieces up close.

Competing runners, fun run enthusiasts, families and pet owners gathered together for Run for ERUF Year 3. Hosted by Marco Polo Plaza Cebu (MPPC), under the seasoned leadership of general manager Brian Connelly and director of sales and marketing Lara Constantino-Scarrow, the annual Run for ERUF is in support of the Emergency Rescue Unit Foundation (ERUF). Runners came as early as 4 in the morning to participate in the Zumba warm-up session and were briefed on the race route by race director Joel Baring, and after the race was over, the runners were led to a cool-down exercise to lessen any potential muscle pain. More than 1,000 runners joined the four distance categories – 10K, 5K, 3K and 1K, and all of the proceeds of the event will go to ERUF.
