Latest BPInoy Awardees
Whenever Filipinos leave their homeland or the Philippines to find greener Pasteur abroad, they do not leave actually the Philippines rather they took the Philippines together with them in their journeys abroad by showing and displaying their “pagka-Pilipino” among the foreigners they mingled abroad. Some become successful, some don’t.
But to those who make it abroad and makes the Filipino races shine, the Bank of the Philippine Islands (BPI) is quick to say “Thank You” to them by awarding them the BPInoy Awards which the Bank of the Philippine Islands (BPI) have conceptualized to give credits to those Filipinos who brings great pride to the Philippine in their successful journey abroad; which the Bank of the Philippine Islands (BPI) do it yearly.
Last year 2010,the Bank of the Philippine Island (BPI) have awarded two successful international Filipinos, namely,(1) Ms. Charice Pempengco for her very successful career as an international entertainer abroad, and (2) Dr. Manuel Cacdac, the founder and chair of Hydrocephalus Foundation of the Philippines, for giving free hydrocephalus surgical operation to many marginalized communities here and abroad.
“Through the BPInoy Awards, we are creating an avenue for Filipinos all over the world to connect, inspire and to celebrate distinct nationalistic pride in evrymen.BPI recognizes our deserving countrymen whose stories attest to the world that we, Filipinos, are globally competitive” –BPI VP Teresita Tan.
