On September 15, 2023, alumni and guests gathered for a night of fun, camaraderie, and anticipation. What was the occasion? A lively beer pub event that also included the much-anticipated announcement of the AIM for a Million raffle winners.
That evening's energy was felt. As old friends reconnected, and new friendships were formed over glasses of fine craft beer, laughter and chatter filled the air. The event's success was due to the hard work and dedication of the AAAIM BOTs, as well as the generous support of the sponsors and the enthusiastic participation of alumni.
The event was graced by the presence of AIM Vice Chairman, Mr. Eugene Acevedo (MBM 1987), who shared updates with AIM. He said that he will sponsor the next AIM Alumni Beer Pub and that he wants to meet more alumni and hear their stories about how AIM impacted their lives. Former AAAIM Chairmen and BOTs also attended the event to show support for the Association's cause.
The AIM for a Million raffle drawing was certainly one of the evening's highlights. Attendees waited with excitement for the lucky winners to be announced. Cheers ignited throughout the room as the winners were announced.
This successful beer pub and raffle event would not have been possible without the unwavering support of our sponsors, whose generosity contributed to an unforgettable evening: The Class of MBM 1973, The PTC Group, Virginia Foods Inc., R. Lapids Chicharon, San Miguel Brewery, Mr. Jed Reyes-Cuerva, MBA 2015 and Mr. Leslie Suntay, MBA 2005.
Kudos & our appreciation to our AAAIM Chairman Boy Tiukinhoy, MBM 1976 and IPC Junjun Dayrit, MBM 1977, our Special projects committee head, Nong Calanog, MBM 1986, and Adrian Cruz, MBA 2013, and our 2022-2023 & 2023-2024 AAAIM BOTs who passionately worked together to ensure the success of AIM for a Million Raffle and the AAAIM Beer Pub.
A heartfelt thank you to all AIM alumni who attended and supported the event. Your presence made the evening truly unforgettable. Events like these bring our AIM Alumni community together, allowing us to reminisce about the past while also making new memories.
It was a night filled with laughter, joy, and celebration, and it will be remembered fondly by all who attended. Here's to more successful events in the future!
