In celebration of this year’s Araw ng Maynila, the city government of Manila, under the decree of Mayor Joseph Estrada, is holding a beauty-and-brains search where the best of the best will be ultimately crowned “Miss Manila”.
THE City of Manila and MARE Foundation, together with Viva Live, partner to crown the next Miss Manila 2016.
The 24 Manileña beauties were presented to media last June 15 at Diamond Hotel, with Mayor Joseph “Erap” Ejercito Estrada in attendance.
On its third consecutive year, the search is looking for a woman of empowerment, social awareness, and grace.
The grand coronation night will be held on Araw ng Maynila, June 24, 7 p.m. at the Philippine International Convention Center (PICC) with delayed telecast on TV5.
The pageant will be hosted by Edu Manzano and KC Concepcion.
Proceeds of this year’s pageant will benefit MARE Foundation, a non-profit institution headed by Chairperson and Pageant Director Jackie Ejercito.
The pageant is organized to raise funds for the city’s socio-civic projects that benefit the poorest of the poor. Miss Manila 2016 will hold its coronation night on June 24, the highlight of the capital city’s celebrations for its 445th anniversary.
The winner will receive 500,000 pesos, and a contract with Viva. She will also represent the City of Manila in different functions and events.
