  • ABS-CBN Chairman and CEO Eugenio “Gabby” Lopez III and ABS-CBN Foundation Managing Director Regina “Gina” Lopez were proclaimed Outstanding Manilans in an awarding ceremony held at The Manila Hotel last June 24. Mr. Lopez was named Out­standing Manilan for Telecom­munications and Broadcasting for dynamic leadership of ABS-CBN, the country’s largest multimedia conglomerate. Through ABS­CBN, he was cited for having pro­vided Filipino professionals and workers meaningful livelihood and promoted public welfare through imparting objective news and in­formation.

    abs-cbnMs. Lopez, on the other hand, was recognized as Outstanding Manilan for Environmental Ad­vocacy for her creative and inde­fatigable efforts to better the en­vironment such as the Pasig River clean-up campaign “Kapit Bisig Para sa Ilog Pasig” and her initia­tives for waste management and environment conservation which all “redound to the benefit of Ma­nila.”

    She was also noted for “her sin­cere love and concern for under­privileged Filipino youth” with the establishment of the ‘Children’s Village’ and her active participation in ABS-CBN Foundation’s life-changing projects like Bantay Ka­likasan, Bantay Bata 163, and the Bayan Foundation.

    Manila City mayor Alfre­do Lim personally awarded the Lopezes during the awarding ceremony also attended by other honor­ees from other fields. The Lopez siblings’ twin recognitions only prove how ABS-CBN is commit­ted to public service and nation-building as much as it is dedicated to broad­casting excellence.

    The awards are part of the celebration of the 438th anniversary of the City of Manila and given annu­ally to recognize and award men and women who have contributed extraordinary and invaluably to the ben­efit and development of the City of Manila and its people and whose achieve­ments have substantially contributed to the honor and prestige of Manila as the country’s capital.
