The SM Development Corporation (SMDC) is so far this year’s biggest Kadayawan sa Davao Festival sponsor.
Assistant City administrator for Administration and Lawyer Tristan Dwight Domingo confirmed SMDC’s turnover of a check worth P3 million for the festival that is happening next month.
Domingo described SMDC’s act as a proof that the city has a good relationship with the private sector. Businesses, he said, do not think twice about sponsoring the city’s festival.
“This is a huge thing for our festival. This is the first time that SMDC is sponsoring us and this is the highest sponsorship so far,” he said.
As the biggest sponsor, SMDC will get to choose which day during the festival is best for their activity.
Domingo has recognized SMDC’s role in the growth of the city and the Dabawenyos— as their investments translate into economic activities and employment.
“We are looking forward to their help in the economy of Davao City as they invest here,” Domingo added. CIO
