In line with its commitment to support the Philippine Department of Tourism’s “It’s More Fun in the Philippines” campaign internationally, VuQo has sponsored the International Gala of this year’s “Memphis in May International Festival: Salute to the Philippines” at the Peabody Memphis Hotel in Tennessee.
VuQo participated in the black-tie gala upon the invitation of DOT Secretary Ramon Jimenez. Philippine Ambassador Jose Cuisia, the Consuls General from San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago, and New York, as well as other dignitaries from the Philippine Departments of Tourism and Foreign affairs, were hosted by the local mayors, council persons, and Tennessee legislators. The international crowd was treated to a special dinner prepared by Philippine Chef Claude Tayag, as well as the “Midnight Flight to Manila” specialty cocktail made with VuQo Premium Vodka, blue curacao, and pineapple juice.
As an honored country , the Philippines will be featured in a comprehensive community-driven event to showcase the Philippine arts, culture, tourist destinations, business opportunities, and culinary traditions.
The Salute to the Philippines continues throughout the month of May.
