Just a few days ago, dozens of personalities from the media, (mostly bloggers) were treated a sample of the high-value catering services like corporate catering, private catering, wedding and a children’s party. Held at the Oasis Manila Pavilion, each of the services was showcased and gave us a worm’s eye-view of each event as we leapfrogged from one showcase to another.

Each event were made up of custom menus to suit a particular like or budget. They offered full service including beautifully displayed and delectable dishes as well as beverage, staffing and equipment. The canapés and desserts were delicious and glasses were constantly topped up or replaced with new filled servings. The staff were very polite and showed great initiative and organisational skills.

PRESS RELEASE:

Make Your Dream Event Happen with Hizon’s Catering

Hizon’s Catering has been in business since 1987. Chances are you’ve attended an event they’ve catered for or you may have even hired them for your own celebration at some point.

Name the occasion and Hizon’s Catering has been part of it. Personal milestones such as baptism, graduation, wedding, and anniversary? Check! Birthday celebrations? Oh yes, with all sorts of themes to boot, ranging from the usual cartoon character-centered concept for kids and a simple SPArty for the debutante to a musical extravaganza for the rocker in the family and a lavish ball for the golden girl!

On the corporate front, Hizon’s Catering has extended its services to countless product launches, conferences, seminars, and festivities that mark the season like Easter, Halloween, and Christmas.

You want it casual, formal, or something in between? Hizon’s Catering can execute it for you. They can accommodate the meal service of your choice. Buffet is quite popular but they also frequently do cocktails. Sit down service is an option too.

“We have really good food,” guarantees Hizon’s Catering General Manager, Joseph Hizon. “We invest a lot in developing the menu, in the preparation of the food, and in our equipment. We make everything from scratch. As part of our culture, we don’t allow instant food and flavorings in our kitchens,” he adds.

Joseph Hizon, Hizon’s Catering General Manager.

The biggest event they’ve handled had a whopping 15,000 guests but they can cater intimate get togethers of 50 persons as well. Menu packages start at P450 per person.

“We are not the cheapest but you get a lot for what you pay for, that’s what we’re known for, what we give you is of good value,” shares Joseph. “We take care of everything. Aside from the usual food, tables, chairs and waiter service, we can also handle the amenities. These are the small things that you don’t want to bother with like the bridal car. If you’re looking for a hotel in the area, we can put that in the package too,”. They have a team of event planners headed by Cheska Pineda and an event planner is assigned to every client to coordinate all the details, even the styling. “We don’t mark-up on it, it’s like an added service,” he points out. Having to deal with just one person lessens the headache and makes all the difference.

Hizon’s Catering always goes the extra mile to make your dream event happen. They even help those who are not their clients! Through their website, they are able to share their expertise with everyone. If you log on to www.hizonscatering.com and access the blog section, you will find tips for different types of parties, from conceptualization to implementation. The website also contains a list of churches and event venues, with photos and basic information about each. “We’ve made it easier for you!,” emphasizes Joseph. Incidentally, Hizon’s is the caterer accredited by the most number of venues in Metro Manila.

The event was made possible with the support of Oasis Manila, Advent Light & Sounds, Sentimental Groove Band, Bars Datiles Design Props, Star Balloon, Enzuno Cakes, The Photoman, Keon Salon, Jerome Yu LED Projector, and Myra Lorenzo who emceed the program.

 

Siargao International Marathon: July 23, 2017

Yes, this paradise island is part of Mindanao which is now under martial law as declared by President Duterte since a week ago, where Philippine military troops are still clashing with militants under the terrorist group Maute in Marawi.

However, Siargao Island is far removed from the present going-ons in Marawi and is known to be a peaceful and insurgency-free place with many tourists, both local and foreign trying to strut their wares in what the island is known for, surfing! Aside from hosting several international and local events in surfing, Siargao will also host an international marathon to be held on July 23, 2017.

The Siargao International Marathon (Run For The Mangroves) 2017 is a fundraising campaign organized by the Municipality of Del Carmen together with Runrio Events, Inc. and Open Space Media Inc. for the benefit of their mangrove rehabilitation in Del Carmen. This is the 1st Siargao International Marathon following the success of the first Siargao It Up! Marathon last year.

I’m very optimistic that this turbulence happening in Mindanao will end very soon and martial law will be lifted way before the event proper. Here’s to peace in Mindanao!

EVENT DETAILS:

Event Date: July 23, 2017 (Sunday)

Event Venue: Del Carmen, Siargao Island

Event Time: 5:00AM – 12:00PM

RUNRIO RE-LAUNCHES ITS RUNNING TRILOGY IN THE COUNTRY

RUNRIO Trilogy Series 2017 promises to be the most exciting ever!

Manila, Philippines – April 28, 2017 – Running coach Rio dela Cruz of RUNRIO Events, Inc. announces the start of its running series in the country – the RUNRIO Trilogy 2017 at the Okada Manila in Paranaque City.

The series is expected to attract an average of 12,000 running enthusiasts per leg from all over the country.   The first of the three legs is set for June 25 and features a half-marathon run including 10Km and 5Km race. This will be followed by the second leg on August 13, where it will showcase Rio’s very own Afroman distance which is a 32Km run, with shorter distances – 21Km, 10Km and 5Km. The 32Km is considered by runners as the ideal race for first-timers who aim to finish their very first full marathon.

The third and final leg will cap the series on October 1 with a full marathon of 42Km that also includes 21Km, 10Km, and 5Km race distances. Runners who complete the highest distance of all 3 races will be honored at the RUNRIO Trilogy Awards Night.

The very first RUNRIO Trilogy was held in 2010 with the primary purpose of providing a progressive running program for those who want to finish a full marathon.  This year’s RUNRIO Trilogy, will also feature popular actor and running enthusiast, Dingdong Dantes as the event ambassador.

“We are excited to launch the RUNRIO Trilogy race series because there are many running enthusiasts out there who are looking forward to this event. This year marks the 7th year of RUNRIO Trilogy, whose main objective is to educate runners to train and race progressively,” said award-winning actor Dantes. “Aside from this, part of the proceeds of this year’s race series will go to YesPinoy Foundation to support the organization’s philanthropic works” added Dantes.

Dantes is the founding chairman of YesPinoy Foundation.

The announcement of the RUNRIO Trilogy series is part of RUNRIO Events, Inc.’s expansion program that will bring more running activities to the public in the coming months.

Runners can also expect bigger and more exciting races from the country’s premiere running events company as it looks to add more races in its portfolio such as trail running, obstacle runs, just to name a few.

RUNRIO will also be launching its new campaign “Heart to Finish”, which is expected to become the participants’ mantra for all RUNRIO races.

“We at RUNRIO understand that people join races not just to run. It’s more because of their desire and passion to be able to finish their 21k, 32k or 42k races with different motivations. We believe that if you run with your heart, anything is possible” said Coach Rio dela Cruz, President of RUNRIO Events, Inc.

One of the highlights of the media launch was the opening of the online registration while onsite registrations will be open starting May 6, 2017, at Adidas Greenbelt 3, Adidas Trinoma, Adidas Solenad 3, Adidas BGC and Toby’s SM MOA.

“I would like to invite all those who like running to join the RUNRIO Trilogy 2017. This unique running series will definitely provide runners a chance to train and prepare properly and a chance to show how far they can go when they run with their heart,” said Coach Rio dela Cruz, RUNRIO Events, Inc. President.

Soleus Cross Country Challenge 2: July 9, 2017

With the spiraling cost of race entry fees these days, one has to literally shop around for cheap races with main considerations being… value for money, right scheduling and a well organized race. But for me, other important aspects of a must-have in races are the scenery and camaraderie, all of which are present in trail running races.

Me and a lot of others have found to like the smaller, intimate races more and you pay a lot less in registration fees that you would in running those mega races in the metro. I like the laid back thing and that for me is definitely more fun!

One trail race this coming July 9, 2017 is the 2nd SOLEUS Cross Country Challenge which will have 21k and 12k distances at very reasonable fees. I was able to run the inaugural race last year and based on my experience, i can thoroughly recommend this great trail run. Starting from the Mt. Sinai Ten Commandments wall in Pintong Bukawe, San Mateo, Rizal, the hilly route travels virtually along mountain passes, river crossings, small villages, pristine greenery— usually bathed in glorious sunshine!

If you’re up for spectacular scenery and varied terrain, then this trail race will not disappoint! The race’s impressive start and finish on top of a mountain over-looking the vast Sierras will definitely add to the wow factor!

Here are the details of the race:
