GPO & Tumon Sands Plaza Celebrity Talent Show Gala (Nov. 22):
On Friday, Nov. 22nd at the Hyatt Regency Guam Ballroom, local celebrities showcased their talents for the second annual GPO & Tumon Sands Plaza (TSP) Talent Show Gala, which raised funds to benefit non-profit organizations as a way of giving back to Guam’s community.
The beneficiaries this year were Kamalen Karidat (Ministry to the Homeless), Make a Wish and Para I Probechu’n I Taotao-ta (PIPIT). Kamalen Karidat was founded in 1993, helping those in need of food, clothing and other resources. The Make a Wish Foundation provides wishes for children who have been diagnosed with life-threatening medical conditions. These wishes encourage those affected to want to fight harder or experience a life-changing moment at least once in their lifetime. PIPIT perpetuates Guam’s rich Chamorro culture through dance and language.
Among the performers were Ann Marie & Juan Muna, Tony & Audrea Sgro, Ben Estavillo, Ryan Tiong and Senator Régine Biscoe Lee. The crowd enjoyed talents from singing and dancing to flairing and competitive eating. Through this fundraiser, GPO & TSP contributed over $15,000 to the beneficiaries in continued support of their unique roles and work for the island.
