Renee C. Bacani, Vice President of Ortigas Malls; and Atty. Michael David I. Abundo, Vice President and Head of Corporate Resources.


It’s officially the holidays and Ortigas Malls welcomes back its guests with meaningful and genuine experiences perfect for the cool, festive atmosphere, by launching its heartwarming holiday event of the year, the Christmas with the Stars online fundraising concert.


As the local entertainment and performance industry continues to grapple with the effects of the pandemic, Ortigas Malls teamed up with the Kilabotitos—Ogie Alcasid and Ian Veneracion—to create a fundraiser for the benefit of the Independent Production Workers Group (IPWG).


IPWG is an organization that provides assistance to creatives who work in live events--concerts, theater, etc.--and represents thousands of workers in the entertainment industry. To date, 70%-80% of these workers are still struggling to find work.


“It’s been oft-repeated that Christmas is not only a season for joy but is also a season for giving. We wanted to combine both with Christmas with the Stars—not only will our mall-goers and fans be treated to a night of good music and good company, they will also be able to help our live entertainment production workers get back up on their feet,” said Arch. Renee Bacani, Vice President for Ortigas Malls during a launch event held on November 4 at Greenhills. 



To unveil the fundraising concert and the various holiday activities in store for the community, Ortigas Malls treated media guests and esteemed patrons to a night market-themed event in Greenhills, San Juan City. The fun-filled night consisted of a night market, food trucks, and a joyous parol exhibit that gave guests early holiday cheers. The event was graced by San Juan City Mayor Francis Zamora.


“With the holidays upon us, it is our hope to spread cheer through simple yet meaningful events that we're sure our patrons will love and make them remember that they will always be part of the community at Ortigas Malls,” Bacani added.


CHRISTMAS WITH THE STARS FUNDRAISING CONCERT

Christmas with the Stars, scheduled on December 11, 8 pm. online, will be headlined by Ogie Alcasid and Ian Veneracion alongside the best OPM singers and performers in the country.


Every P1,000 single or accumulated receipts from any establishment in Ortigas Malls entitles a customer a free ticket to the online concert and support the cause.


The concert will be accompanied by online mini-concerts every Friday starting Nov. 12 on the Ortigas Malls social media pages so patrons can shop safely, enjoy music, and donate for the recovery of live performance workers.


ORTIGAS COMMUNITY CARD

Aside from the fundraising concert, Ortigas Malls also unveiled its first-ever loyalty card—the Ortigas Malls Community Card. This loyalty program is designed to give mall-goers and shoppers a VIP experience across its malls. Its exclusive privileges can be used in Greenhills, Tiendesitas, Estancia, and Industria.




“After many months of being cooped up in the safety of our homes, it’s nice to feel connected to a community once again. We would like to share this experience with the patrons of Ortigas Malls so they may find a trusted program that adds value to their lifestyles, through the use of the Ortigas Community Card,” said Arch. Bacani of Ortigas Malls.


The rewards program allows members to enjoy real time perks--from free parking, carwash, free use of Shopbox, free shopping fee from My Home Dashers, and discount coupons from Ortigas Malls merchant members.


“This is our way of giving back to the community and is only a teaser of more perks, privileges, and functionalities coming for our Community Card members,” said Bacani.


Register for an Ortigas Mall Community Card through the Ortigas Malls Mobile app for free.


GREENHILLS NIGHT MARKET

Christmas is all about spending time with friends and family, something that has been limited during the months spent in lockdown, which is why Ortigas Malls sought to make up for time lost with the opening of the Greenhills Night Market.


Enjoy al fresco dining in a safe environment with over 50 food stalls and food trucks and colorful parols exhibit all while enjoying the beats and the vibe from the nightly DJ.


With the night market located smack dab within the ultimate shopping destination, Greenhills, patrons can conveniently do their holiday shopping while savoring the flavors and offerings of the night market. The night market runs from Nov. 4, 2021 until Jan. 7, 2022 from 4 pm to 11 pm. Entrance is free.



With the grand launch of the Christmas with the Stars concert, Ortigas Community Card, and the other fun events lined up, mall-goers and shoppers can find their way back to the things they enjoy, at the same time discover new and rewarding ways to have fun with the ones they love.
