Blown Away

Last night was a blast, for the lack of a better word. Spotted: Seventh High, The Fort. I went to the event of The Red Whistle's charity auction last August 31, 2011. Proceeds of the event would be directed to the programs for mobilization planned until the end of this year.

The event started out with the basic HIV 101 of the guests who wanted to be educated about the virus. People got introduced to the group and were given information by the counselors before their own red whistles were handed out.

The auction night was started off by JM Rodriguez as he welcomed his co-hosts for the evening Krista Kleiner and Shahani Gania.

Designers who donated include Joey Samson, Frederick Peralta, Rajo Laurel, Nat Manilag, Francis Libiran, Tina Daniac, Eric delos Santos, John Paras, Mikee Andre and our Filpino designers abroad X’s Jasler of Jail Jeans (Singapore) Michael Cinco, Albert Andrada and Bandoix Flores Nebria of Dubai. Nonito Donaire Jr donated a signed boxing glove. Finally 100 pcs of leatherette encased stainless whistles that were hand sewn will be sold that night. These are designed by X’s Jasler of Jail Jeans, Singapore and 10 limited edition leather encased stainless whistles with swarovsky crystals were being sold as well.

The night was filled with wonderful music while a photo presentation of all the celebrities and advocates wearing The Red Whistle was shown.

I can't help but say that this was pretty much a successful and fun-filled night. I was definitely blown away.
