CONGRATULATIONS Krisgelle Roc Maramot, Miss Philippines Canada 2014 You made us all proud!
Last June, 2014, Krisgelle won the coveted title of Miss Philippines Canada 2014 at last year's Pinoy Fiesta & Tradeshow sa Toronto at the Metro Toronto Convention Center (http://bit.ly/1xxZ87n). She was among 11 remarkable candidates who not only personified Filipina beauty, but who joined the pageants for a good cause... to have fun and help the poor!
As winner of Miss Philippines Canada 2014, Krisgelle won a trip to the Philippines to experience the true beauty and culture of the Philippines! While reconnecting with her roots, she visited the houses donated by PCCF and was armly welcomed by its grateful residents. Building houses for the poor and the needy and afflicted by leprosy was a very worthy cause by PCCF.
Krisgelle met with various dignitaries, she was a special guest at a popular GMA PinoyTV show, but one thing she did that she will never forget, one thing that she did that will last more than her lifetime.. she planted a tree! A simple task to help sustain the environment.
It was truly an experience of a lifetime for Krisgelle and her Mom!
PCCF president, Romy Rafael declared, "We can only help if our events like Pinoy Fiesta and the pageantry are successful, we have to work harder, we need everyone's support, we have to be united to be able to help the poorest of the poor, we have to have fun and help at the same time."
We are now recruiting candidates to join us in 2015... JOIN A PAGEANTS WITH A CAUSE!

Invites for the PCCF pageantry was way too much to handle, what are you going to do when a huge and prestigious mainstream international event like the Scotiabank Caribbean Carnival and the biggest Filipino Canadian annual religious event , the Canadian Martyr's Shrine Pilgrimage in Midland have both invited your beauties to grace and perform on their occasion?
The always sought after beauties made the decision to bring Miss Philippines Canada 2014 Krisgelle Maramot to the Midland Pilgrimage and the Miss Teen Philippines Canada 2014 Adrienne Eduria and Mrs. Philippines Canada 2014 Velona Daliva to the Caribbean Carnival. It was a great day for the beauties , although their events took place far apart, all of them had a blast from their experiences, a truly experience of a lifetime indeed.
Congratulations to all of them for being great ambassadors for the Philippine Canadian Charitable Foundation and the whole community.

What is a Fiesta without a band. Pinoy Fiesta was once again the recipient of the band extraordinaire Philippine Heritage Band's rendition of various band music favourites, as they led the ever exciting Santa Cruzan in Toronto, full of beauties from the Miss, Little Miss and Mrs. Philippines Canada pageantry.

GMA International, the business unit that operates and distributes GMA Network’s international channels – GMA Pinoy TV, GMA Life TV and GMA News TV International – is poised to delight its Kapuso audience abroad as it brings Kapuso Premier Actress Lovi Poe to the 2014 Pinoy Fiesta and Trade Show sa Toronto this June 28.
Sponsored by GMA International and the Philippine Canadian Charitable Foundation (PCCF), the event is one of many celebrations around the world in commemoration of Philippine Independence Day. The program includes a performance by Lovi as well as a meet and greet with her fans.
The event will be held at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, Hall A, North Building from 9:00 AM – 11:00 PM.
This month, Lovi returns to international television screens as she breathes life to the character of Shiela Salazar-Real in Ang Dalawang Mrs. Real, currently airing on the GMA’s flagship international channel, GMA Pinoy TV.
Compared to her previous TV roles, Lovi plays a totally different character in the series as she is required to be adventurous and strong-willed. Eventually her vulnerability as a woman who loved a man dearly will also be revealed.
“My character here as Shiela has a strong personality and is a bit boyish. Kasi in ‘Akin Pa Rin ang Bukas’, medyo weak yung character ko, naging strong na lang siya towards the end,” said Lovi. “But this one, strong siya in the beginning pero nung nalaman niya yun ginawa ng asawa niya… siyempre pag tayo naman mga babae kahit gaano pa tayo ka-strong but once we get our hearts broken, may time na tumitiklop tayo and that’s what’s going to happen.”
With the international premiere of their series, Lovi is also looking forward to reaching out to their fans abroad. “I’m really excited na mai-share yun sa kanila. At least it will make them feel a lot closer to us here pag may pinapakitang shows from the Philippines,” she says.
Playing the leading man in the series is Kapuso primetime king Dingdong Dantes as Anthony Real as the man Shiela fell in love with and married. However, everything will change when she finds out that she is not the only Mrs. Real; that her husband is also married to Millet portrayed by the Diamond Star Ms. Maricel Soriano.
