Noel Bazaar, the long-running Christmas shopping event in the city, will open Nov. 22 at World Trade Center in Pasay City. It will run until Dec. 1 and will feature a wide array of gift and personal items from various merchants.
This year’s Noel Bazaar will include Dingdong Dantes and Marian Rivera’s “Celebrity Ukay-Ukay,” a fundraising project for the GMA Kapuso Foundation. It will sell items previously owned by Kapuso stars. Proceeds will benefit Kapuso School Development (KSD), Unang Hakbang sa Kinabukasan (UHSK) and Give a Gift: Alay sa Batang Pinoy Christmas Projects of GMA Kapuso Foundation.
There will also be special events such as The Search for Runway Duke and Duchess; Miss Campus Role Model 2013; GMA Variety Shows; Kiddie Fashion Show; Imaje’s Top Model; Enchanted Kingdom Circle of artists; Mamus Talent Haus Variety Show; Food and Beverage Demo; Philippine Flair Open; and Little Angels Show with Parents.
“Noel Bazaar has always focused on items for holiday gift shopping. We understand that gift shopping is different from personal shopping. People who are looking for gifts to give to their loved ones and friends want unique but affordable items,” says project director Mayose Bautista.
By catering to this specific group, the bazaar has allowed micro and small businesses to feature their products every holiday season, and has helped organizations raise funds for causes.
Aside from the GMA Kapuso Foundation, the bazaar’s beneficiaries include Bantayog ng mga Bayani, Gifts and Graces Foundation, Saints Peter & John Parish and Noel P. Gozon Memorial Clinic.
The Noel Bazaar series is mounted by GMA Network, GMA News TV, Philippine Daily Inquirer, Inquirer.net, Summit Media, PEP.ph, the Foreign Post, 97.1 WLS FM, DZBB and Radio High 105.9.
