April 25 was a day of celebration, joy and gratitude for the Prime Orion Philippines, Inc. (POPI) Group of Companies.
To mark its 25th Listing Anniversary, “Sama-Sama sa POPIESTA – Family Thanksgiving Day” was held on 25 April 2015 at the spacious Tutuban Mall Exhibit Hall (TMX) located at the 3rd floor of the Prime Block Building. Close to 700 guests – employees and their families trooped to TMX on that fine Saturday morning and were greeted by the lively and energetic Ati-Atihan opening number followed by the equally bouncy Zumba session led by Tutuban’s very own Aerobics Group.
In his welcome remarks, Mr. Yuen Po Seng, POPI President, reminisced about the company’s beginnings with great pride and honour, and how it has grown over the years through the hard work and dedication of its employees. He especially thanked the families who came to celebrate with their parents, husbands, wives, siblings working at Prime Orion. Mr. Po Seng expressed great admiration and gratitude for “the man behind the success of Prime Orion”, Mr. David Go, President of Tutuban Properties, Inc., whose inspiration and leadership steered the company to even greater heights.
Food carts, games and face-painting were big hits among the younger set, and kept the children amused and entertained, and their bellies full.
Other highlights of the fun-filled day were the Laser Magic Show by JB dela Cruz who wowed the audience with his fantastic display of lights and colours, the Silver Box Band which provided great live music and the exciting raffle.
Mr. Edwin Silang, AVP of Group HR and Chair of the Organizing Committee, closed the event by giving thanks, not only for the food and cheer, but for the opportunity to re-connect and share with employees across the POPI Group, alongside their families who came and celebrated this remarkable day.
The subsidiary companies of POPI are Tutuban Properties, Inc., Orion Property Development, Inc., Orion Maxis Inc., FLT Prime Insurance Corporation, Lepanto Ceramics, Inc. and Orion Solutions, Inc..
