It was a funfilled, flavorful and very spirited Christmas get-together jointly staged by Edge Davao and sister company Zion Accuprint Publishing Inc. last Friday evening at Yolks Flower Café and Cupcakery now located near the Ateneo de Davao high school campus along Acacia Street in Matina
Everyone made a huge effort in joining in their best candy-colored costumes and in performances that the party-goers enjoyed immensely. Participants showed team spirit in the Christmas presentation contest and in the best in costume compeitition.
Christian Jay Rafal (editorial department) and Rover Kaye Hamoy (production) shared first prize in best in costume for male category, while for Christie Samonte (marketing) and Dalisay Paran (admin) also tied in the female category in the contests that were decided by acclamation as the judges had difficulty in choosing the winners. For the Christmas presentation, production department dethroned the admin and marketing departments combined, last year’s champs, while the editorial team settled for the third place.
Of course, a Christmas party is not complete without the exchanging of presents and everyone were excited to get their gifts. Apart from the swapping of gifts, each officer, supervisor and employee also received a surprise Christmas present from Edge Davao editor-in-chief Antonio Ajero.
Olivia Velasco, president of Edge Davao and Zion Publishing, gave her Christmas and inspirational message and let everyone know how important their contributions are to the companies’ accomplishments. She also thanked and recognized the hard work of the employees over the past year and urged them to work harder in the coming year.
There was also raffle draw wherein some took home a television set, stove, and many more items.
As they say, all went home happy.
