Emerald Suites Hosts Venue for Gugma Sa Kabataan 10th Year-End Gift-giving and Thanksgiving Party


After a successful 9 year run of giving smiles and hopes to Gugma sa Kabataan Inc., XU-CON 2010 Batch has undeniably made its 10th year of Gift-giving and Thanksgiving Party a success and the most memorable one yet to note last December 30, 2016. With Emerald Suites as the sponsoring venue, the 32 children aged from 9 to 17 get to have a new and exciting experience as they were able to celebrate the annual event outside their comfort zones at Gugma ng Kabataan Inc..

However, it was the other way around as soon as the children handed over their banner as their way of thanking their manita: Santa Ate(s) and Kuya(s).
