Marking the start of an #AweSM 60 years celebration, SM gathered some of the country’s top celebrities and industry leaders, as well as its business partners, tenants and valued stakeholders for a colorful and star-studded launch part at the SM Mall of Asia.
SM Prime executive committee chairman Hans T. Sy, SM Investments Corp. vice chairman Tessie Sy-Coson, SM Markets vice chairman Herbert Sy, and SM Hotels and Conventions Corp. president Elizabeth Sy were present to welcome guests and to lead the anniversary toast.
In her welcome speech, Coson said, “While achieving the milestone of us turning 60 allows us to be nostalgic, it is not the history we are celebrating today. We are celebrating the future and we are ready and excited for what is in store. We thank everyone for being a part of our growth and we hope that you will continue to join us in this exciting ride ahead of us.”
Gracing the event were some of the country’s A-list celebrities and personalities including Vicki Belo and Hayden Kho, 2016 Asia’s Best Female Chef Margarita Fores, Anton del Rosario, Xian Lim, Gerald Anderson, Ruffa, Raymond and Richard Gutierrez with Sarah Lahbati, Bettina Carlos, Bituin Escalante, Radha, Ces Drilon, Denise Laurel, Frenchie Dy, Gabby Concepcion, Issa Litton, Lexi Schulze, Marlon Stockinger, Martin del Rosario, Andre and Daryl Chang, Tim Yap, and Ms. Philippines Earth winners Silvia Celesti Cortesi, Berjayneth Chee, Jean Nicole De Jesus, Halimatu Yushawu, to name a few.
