At the historic installation of newly-elected City Council members at the City Council Chambers of Daly City’s Civic Center, TFC was named Mayor’s Business of the Year.
According to Mayor Juslyn Manalo, TFC provides entertainment and offers shows that reflect the Filipino culture and values. But more than that, Manalo adds that “it’s really through the work they’ve done for the community. For the past two years they’ve partnered with the city of Daly City to do the Filipino American History Month celebration and it’s wonderful to partner with a business that cares about the community. We see a long-term partnership with The Filipino Channel and it’s an honor to present this award to them.”
ABS-CBN Global Head of Corporate Affairs & PR Nerissa Fernandez accepted the award on behalf of Global COO Olivia De Jesus and North and Latin America Managing DirectorJun Del Rosario.
In her speech, Fernandez quoted the late Chairman Emeritus Don Eugenio Lopez, Jr. when he was asked if ABS-CBN is about values first or service first?
“ABS-CBN is about values first because values comprise the soul of service,” she related. “Daly City provided us a business environment wherein we could freely put into practice our cherished corporate values.”
In attendance at the ceremonies were California State Senator Scott Wiener and Assemblymember Philip Ting of the California Legislature, both of whom also presented TFC with Certificates of Recognition.
Other attendees of the Special Meeting of the City Council were Congresswoman Jackie Spier, San Mateo County Supervisor David Canepa, former San Francisco mayor Willie Brown.
