If you managed to drop by the Toyota Classics charity concert on November 7, then congratulations—you are part of history.
The event sold more than P2 million worth of tickets. That’s a new record, and double the amount from the previous year.
On top of the impressive sales figures, Toyota Motor Philippines (TMP) also donated one 29-seat coaster and more than P1 million to support our country’s Paralympic athletes for their transportation and training requirements. The proceeds were also for the benefit of TMP’s ‘Start Your Impossible’ hero athlete and Filipino gold medalist Ernie Gawilan.
“With better resources, the Philippines’ Para athletes can train and prepare better for their succeeding Paralympic competitions,” the company said in a statement, adding that the support will hopefully help the athletes bring the country more pride.
“With unrelenting commitment to corporate social responsibility and sustainable development, Toyota Motor Philippines shall continue forging new avenues to Filipino society.”
Last week’s event was quite a show: Not only was London’s Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment in attendance, Tony Award winner Lea Salonga performed as well. We’re already wondering what next year’s lineup will look like.
