Pangilinan and Jenny Chico of NLEX-SCTEX took part in the awarding ceremony.

Close to 500 participants joined the event hosted by Alviera, which is an 1,800-hectare sustainable estate by Ayala Land and Leonio Land that features a diverse mix of residential dwellings, commercial districts, industrial parks, institutions and leisure facilities located close to the Porac exit of the SCTEX.
