Kids Fiesta was U! Happy Events biggest event by far. This time we choose, a Christian group of missionaries, Kids International Ministries (KIM). KIM has been helping Filipino children for 3 years now. The center, New Faith Family Home was the venue for the grand event… and the Kids of Cuattro, its surrounding community, our beneficiary.

The event started with a Fun Fest. As many as 700 kids and volunteers arrived with food stations, face painting, 3 street magicians and 3 clowns greeting them. My partner JB, a renowned magician himself, was my co-emcee for the 5 hour event. We started with testimonies and advice from Bea Saw and Mikee Lee, winners of Pinoy Big Brother. It started formally with God’s grace and Mr. Jeff Long, founder of KIM welcoming everyone.

3 more popular artists- Yeng Constantino, Anne Curtis and Drae Ybanez surprised the kids with their talents. Yeng for one was a big hit as hundreds of kids rushed on stage to sing and dance with her. Anne, on the other hand, did her first ever testimony as a Born Again Christian. She said “Kids, make God your best friend through prayer”. “Prayer is very powerful”. Drae, former Philippine Idol finalist, boosted the crowd with his hit songs.

There were also Butch and JB for their magic show, Jo-e’s friends with their 3 Dance presentations- Hip Hop, Pinoy Pop and Jazz Ballet. The day ended with distribution of goods, headed by the IBM volunteers. Almost 250K worth of goods were given to all the kids and volunteers.

Guys, we thank you for making this event truly memorable for everyone. Like we said, in the event, “Come Back!” These Kids need you…
