Laag Heroes organizing Francis 18th Birthday

PROGRAM: 

Lance: Good evening everyone! Welcome to The Bellavista Hotel Lapu-Lapu City! Welcome to a night of pastel colors in celebration of a wonderful life for a girl who is now turning into a fine lady. All of you who are here tonight have watched her grow over the years into the wonderful person she is now. As a jumpstart, let us all welcome and acknowledge the ever supportive and loving family of our debutant:

Viola: Without them, her life would be empty and unhappy. Let us all give a big round of applause to honor all the people whom she truly loved. Sabi nga, marami tayong mahahanap na kapuso, pero iisa lang ang ating kapamilya.

Mother: Mama Luz
Sister: Churchill and Chique

Let us put our hands together, as we welcome the main highlight of this celebration, and as she stepped into a higher level of life, ladies and gentlemen, our debutant, FRANCIS MAGALONA- ARCENAL!

The love of a family will always be God’s greatest blessing. Sabi nga nila, in life we can have several friends, classmates, and social circles, but there is only one family who is always willing and ready to welcome us no matter what. Ladies and gentlemen, to answer the question kung saan nga ba nagmana si Francis, here’s Mama Luz. to welcome all of us to their lovely daughter’s 18th birthday party.

-Welcome Remarks – Mother

VIola: Before we formally start with the celebration let us all stand for the invocation to be sung by Toby Lee.
-Toby will sing The Prayer

Emcee: Thank you Toby for that glorious song to praise our Lord.


18 CANDLES and Wishes:

And to continue with the program,  To represent Francis’s Circle of Important People of her Life, let us welcome the following persons who will share their wishes and offer Candles of Enlightenment which symbolizes friendship. Of course these people will be the ones who will give her advices and kind words along the way on how to become a perfect woman.
They then each light a candle that symbolizes light—light that will guide Francis on her life journey. Once all 18 candles have been lit, they are placed on the debutante’s birthday cake and blown out.

“18 candles will be lit up by 18 of the debutante’s closest friends and relatives. Every candle symbolizes a year of her existence.  Each one will be a visible reminder of Francis’ triumph over challenges in life… serves as eternal lamp that brings her optimistic view of the world she’s about to enter and a guiding light that gives her a sense of direction.”

  2. Ninya - For good health
  3. Lesley - For financial independence
  4. Verna - For spiritual enlightenment

18 ROSES:
Like a flower that blooms and exudes its sweet scents to attract bees and butterflies, the debutant will be swarmed  on by 18 equally gentle bachelors and with the brothers. Let us invite them to come into the center-stage.

Circle of 18 gentle bachelors who will offer to her roses that symbolize love. Love which Francis has for her family and all the people in her life. Each bachelor after giving Francis a rose will dance with her for about 1 or two minutes with the background music dedicated by each guy to the debutante… let us start with…

  1. Keith
  2. Paulo
  3. Christian
  4. NJ Rosal
  5. Charles
  6. Ronald
  7. Christos
  8. Alfred
  9. Ryle
  10. Troy
  11. Christoph
  12. Dzone
  13. Peter
  14. Junrey
  15. Jhan
  16. Romeo
  17. Carl
  18. Chris

Emcee: The last dance is of course reserved to the forever most handsome and most supportive guy in her life. To dance with our debutant, Francis 18th  ladies and gentlemen, Kuya Chris Arcenal!

18th birthday marks the end of teenage and the beginning of adulthood. It is a very special day in every one's life because on this a person cherishes the old moments filled with love, care and shelter but now the person is moving towards adulthood where she will be loaded with responsibilities and independence of thought and expression. As the debutante receives her 18 roses let it be a reminder that like the rose life is beautiful,however, there are thorns that signify that life isn’t that easy for there are problems to be faced. It is up to her how she will handle these hurdles with the support of her family and friends.
