|Real Beauty at 40: Dermclinic’s 40th Anniversary Celebration|
Glitter and glamour graced the EDSA Shangri-la Hotel’s Isla Ballroom as it played host to Dermclinic’s 40th Anniversary last November 16, 2011. The grand event promptly commenced at 7 in the evening, starting with cocktails for the guests, among them distinguished politicians, MM Light of the World pastors, doctors, suppliers, loyal Dermclinic patrons, personal friends of Dr. Vinson B. Pineda, and representatives from print, radio and TV media, before being formally ushered in by the Halili Cruz School of Ballet. Event host extraordinaire Ms. Christine Caballero served as the event’s Master of Ceremonies, and graciously presented the special performances from the MM Light of the World Choir, the Black Theater Group, renowned local quintet The Company, powerful songstress Dulce, and the prestigious Philippine Philharmonic Orchestra.
Also on the bill was a feature presentation entitled “Milestone of Dermclinic: 1971-Present”, as well as a unique fashion show featuring professional models and Dermclinic’s own resident doctors showcasing Filipino designer Eric Pineda’s custom creations exclusively tailored for Dermclinic’s 40th Anniversary.
Finally, the 3-hour gala event culminated in the official presentation of former Miss Universe 4th Runner-Up and TV personality, Ms. Maria Venus Raj, Dermclinic’s new Brand Ambassador, after which she, along with Dr. Pineda and Dermclinic’s resident doctors onstage, and all the guests and performers, shared a well-deserved and congratulatory toast to the success of Dermclinic and to a new beginning ahead.
