Around 500 employees and guests easily filled up the auditorium of the Tektite Towers in Ortigas.
Energy was at an all-time high as employees joined party games and lined up to try their luck at the prize roulette.
Bosses Vic del Rosario and Tess Cruz drew the major prizes which reached up to 10,000 pesos. The biggest surprise of the night was when Boss Vic added even more money to the prize pool, bringing the total prizes up to half a million pesos!
