Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray Pays Courtesy Visit To PLDT Chairman & CEO Manny V. Pangilinan

As part of her grand homecoming festvites, Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray made a much-awaited stopover at the PLDT head office where she met with PLDT Chairman and CEO Manny V. Pangilinan.

During the courtesy visit, MVP expressed renewed commitment to PLDT’s partnership with Binibining Pilipinas Charities Inc. (BPCI) and Miss Universe Organization. Since 2014, PLDT has supported BPCI’s various causes and events, particularly the annual and highly anticipated Binibining Pilipinas pageant.

“We  are  one  with  the  nation  in  celebrating Catriona’s victory,” MVP said. “Her resounding success proves what we’ve always known—that Filipinos are truly world-class. We look forward to continuing our fruitful partnership with BPCI and Miss Universe Organization, and empower more amazing Filipinos to shine on the global stage.”

PLDT  employees and  officials warmly welcomed  the  homecoming  queen while Catriona took time to entertain them and take pictures with them, even showcasing her world-famous signature ‘lava walk.’

The courtesy visit to PLDT was one of the highlights of Catriona’s triumphant return to the country. A true queen with a mission, she also found time in her hectic schedule to visit two charitable organizations that she supports: LoveYourself Foundation for HIV/AIDS awareness and education, and Smile Train for underprivileged children who were just too happy to see her in person.
