Mayor Felipe Antonio Remollo accepted the award accompanied by Councilor Michael Bandal, Assistant City Administrator Dr. Dinno Depositario, City Sports Coordinator Ike Xavier Villaflores and Katherine Therese Aguilar.
Among those who presented the award to the delegation from Dumaguete City were Charles Lim, Founder of PSTA; Department of Tourism Undersecretary Benito Bengzon Jr. and Pauland Dumlao, Managing Director of Plan Bravo-Primetime Group Incorporated.
