The 47th Consular Ball, which seeks to promote acquaintanceship, fellowship and camaraderie, was held at the Grand Ballroom of the Conrad Hotel Manila in Pasay City.

The grand event chaired by Consul Helen Ong and co-chaired by Consul Betty Ang is also mounted for the purpose of providing charitable funds for the Corps’ social development projects and advocacies, such as its scholarship programs, and partnership with different government agencies and institutions

The event, which is a night to remember, was highlighted by its fine selection of food and exquisite wines, fabulous raffle prizes from generous sponsors, entertainment from Marcy David Band and Replay Band, and the turnover of leadership of the outgoing Dean and Consul General Sergio Ortiz-Luis, Jr. to the incoming Dean, Consul General Javier Martin Garcia.

Besides the attendance of diplomats and distinguished government officials, also seen at the glamorous event were Nikki Tang, Rose Ong, Michael Ang, beauty queen and former counselor Nini Licaros, fabulous interior designer Cocoy Cordoba, power couple Caloy and Irene Montemayor, businesswoman Emmy Gonzalez with daughter Andrea, paper queen Connie Haw, and jet setter Bong Prada Lim.

Bravo Consular Corps of the Philippines!
