[PARTNER] Philippine Airlines and Wells Fargo Join Philippine International Aid on "Giving Hope to the Children"

Philippine International Aid (PIA), together with Philippine Airlines and Wells Fargo, presents “Giving Hope to the Children,” a luncheon fashion show fundraiser on Sunday, November 23, 2014 at Hyatt Embarcadero featuring the designs of Criselda Lontok, with a special participation of Rustan’s. The event also features a Christmas bazaar and auction. Emcees include KPIX/CBS-5 news anchor Veronica de la Cruz and veteran journalist Lloyd LaCuesta.

One of Rustan’s top designers, Criselda Lontok has dressed Manila’s crème de la crème through her contemporary fashions. Her new collection features a series of black and white apparel, inspired by the glamorous women of Hollywood of the ‘50s, like Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly, Elizabeth Taylor and Katherine Hepburn.

Philippine Airlines is providing the airfare for the designer and choreographer, and donating two business class tickets for the live auction. Galleria Park Hotel is providing the accommodations for them. Wells Fargo highlights its partnership with the Filipino community by commemorating its 20 years of remittance service to the Philippines. The holiday fashion show is PIA’s annual fundraiser.

PIA is on its 28th year of providing educational assistance to disadvantaged Filipino youth in the Philippines and in the San Francisco Bay Area.  PIA is a volunteer organization.
