Kapuso abroad in Canada had the time of their lives when they got the chance to bond with no less than actor Dingdong Dantes as he joined the celebrations for the Philippine Independence Day as well as the Filipino Heritage Month there.
Dingdong’s first stop was in Toronto last June 22 for the “Pinoy Fiesta and Trade Show Toronto” organized by the Philippine Canadian Charitable Foundation (PCCF).
During the event, which was held at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre Hall, Dingdong crowned the newest Miss Teen Philippines Canada 2019 and Miss Philippines Canada 2019. He also performed OPM songs for the Kapuso abroad who gladly sang along with him. The crowd got even more excited when the A-list actor serenaded a lucky audience on stage.
“We would like to thank everyone for coming to the ‘Pinoy Fiesta and Trade Show Toronto’. Their support helped us complete a 30-house village in Tala, Caloocan and donate to different beneficiaries in the Philippines. This event would not be possible without GMA Pinoy TV, our community partners, and the hard-working volunteers,” PCCF Public Relations Officer Fred Tomas shared.
After the Toronto festivities, Dingdong went to Vancouver on June 29 to perform at the “Pista ng Bayan 2019” organized by the United Filipino-Canadian Associations in British Columbia (UFCABC).
After his performance at the Vancouver Art Gallery, the Kapuso Primetime King personally thanked his fans through a special meet and greet event. Under the heat of the sun, the Kapuso abroad were all smiles while taking selfies and singing with him. The StarStruck host was even game to take more photos with other Pinoys he met at the airport in Canada before heading back home.
“Kapuso artist Dingdong Dantes did not disappoint his myriad of British Columbian fans, with some who even traveled for hours just to see him. He was very welcoming and down to earth. Salamat sa Kapuso Network and we are looking forward to more collaborations in future Pista ng Bayan events,” said UFCABC Advisor Board Member and Pista ng Bayan Vancouver 2019 Program Director Cliff Belgica.
“The long flight to Canada was worth it because when we got there, we really felt the warmth and excitement of our Kapuso abroad. It’s just right for me to return that much love and energy to them. Nagkantahan kami and we really had fun. Thank you so much GMA Pinoy TV for giving me the opportunity to meet and talk with our Kapuso in Toronto and Vancouver. I really hope I get to see them again soon,” Dingdong shared how much he enjoyed his Canada trip.
