The Search is On

Fifty-four young women have been unveiled in the press conference and presentation of candidates in one of the most prestigious pageants in the Philippines, the Binibining Cebu 2018.

Wearing the stunning red dress created by Cary Santiago, the candidates were walking proudly on stage at SM Seaside City Cebu this afternoon. The candidates come from the 44 municipalities and 9 cities (Cebu City broken down into two) in the Cebu province.

Binibining Cebu welcomes single mothers

In its second edition and for the first time, the Binibining Cebu has opened its doors to single mothers pointing out that having a child is an empowering process that permits a woman to practice her honorable authority, choice independence. In addition, whether by choice or fate, nurturing a child single-handedly sets her as a model of bravery, aptitude, and determination.

Present during the press conference and the presentation of the candidates are Bb. Cebu Charity Maria Gigante, Bb. Cebu Tourism Samantha Lo and Bb. Cebu 2017 Apriel Smith. Also present in the event is Mr. Raymond Tio, the project Chairperson, Mr. Kenneth Lim, President of Binibining Sugbu Charity Foundation, Inc. and Sacred Heart School for Boys Batch 1985 Foundation, Inc., Kenneth Cobonpue, creative director, Cary Santiago, pageant chairperson, Victor Hao Cuenco, artistic director.
