It was also the place where they had a series of activities prior to the pageant’s big night. At Tierra Alta, the men had an elegant evening during the Governor’s Ball. At Saint Paul University in Dumaguete, they promoted both Masculinity and Responsibility.They also went into an adventure at the Apo Island marine sanctuary.
