After the 16 beauty delegates from 15 municipalities and the city of Tagbilaran were officially presented to the media, the selection of the Darling of the Press immediately followed. The results of the secret balloting based on the girls’ communication skills, charm and personality will be revealed during the pageant finals.
JCI Chocolate Hills Lady Jaycees Club President Queenie Melody Fullante and Be Grand Resort’s GM Anito Lanticse welcomed the press, the organizers & the candidates to the whole- day activity in Bohol’s grandest resort, Be Grand Resort.
And what a warm & grand welcome it was! A welcome befitting royalty! Be Grand Resort pulled no stops to ensure everyone had the most grandiose experience at the world- class resort. Truly beyond the expected.
