Race 20X250 awarding in Barangay Pagatpatan, Butuan City
It is one fine morning in the City of Butuan when the constituents of Baragangay Pagatpat gathered to witness the awarding of the “Race 20X250” winners.
The contest aims to help raise financial awareness through the use of a community forum www.empoweringfilipinos.com
. By referring at least 250 people, you get a chance to win a Lenovo Tab 3. The initiative also helps to spread awareness on risk protection.
The event was graced by GIZ’ Program Director Dr. Antonis Malagardis, Pru Life UK’s Channel Incubation Vice President Kenn Ramirez and Barangay Pagatpatan Barangay Captain Romanito Amante representing the Office of the City Mayor Ronnie Lagnada. The two winners from the Barangay were Mr. Lumdemer Burdeos who was able to refer 252 registrants and Mr. Sol Philip Delwan who referred 272 registrants into www.empoweringfilipinos.com
. Lumdemer, one of the winners, affirmed the power of social media by winning the contest through the utilization of his Facebook friends. He stated that if he was able to do it then so can others.
With a successful event, we expect an increased response from the barangay level in the City of Butuan. A hope that together we can continually bridge the protection gap in the local regions with the support of the local government, its constituents and the private sector.
