Civic-oriented lady, exotic beauty Marissa Fenton celebrated her birthday on August 6 at the Makati Garden Club. Despite the bad weather, 80 of her close friends braved the rains to celebrate this special day with her. With the turnout of guests, it was obvious that she is well-loved by her colleagues from the different civic organizations that she is involved with, like the Inner Wheel Club where she was former president, Rotary Club, Zonta Club, FCCP, SCEI and good friends from Manila’s high society.
Chef Robert Lilja prepared a five-course menu which the guests enjoyed. Music was provided by Nonoy Lopez and his band, where guests sang along with him like Atty. Rene Puno and lovely wife Ann, Nympha Valencia, international photographer to the rich and famous Rupert Jacinto and charming wife Tina.
Jazz singer Lillibeth Garcia sang several danceable tunes where guests unashamedly gyrated to, like Jun Valenton and Mona Serevilla, Apple Mateo, Nancy Bismonte, Dan Legaspi, Nini Pinlac, Rosanna Peña, Emma Nieto, Glo Alcala, Kathy Park, Patty Jalbuena Johnson, Chuchi Villar who at one time also sang with Nonoy and his band, John Gaddi, Sonny Tanchanco, Alice Villanueva, Rene Andrews and Mariliese Evaristo who brought her mom Dona Pinang Saldana and danced with gusto with Dr. George Sarakinis.
Guests who chose to just enjoy watching the dancing crowd were Beth Tagle and friends, Dra. Ellen Binay, Nini and Abe Licaros, Jun and Nene Leonor, former Gov. Chavit Singson, Lovely Jazz Carreon, former Miss Universe Margie Moran Floirendo, lifestyle columnist Joy Fong and Rita Dy. Late arrival was international DJ John Robinson.
The party lasted way past midnight and even when the band stopped playing, guests stayed and just continued the merrymaking. To Marisa, you really know how to party.
Till the next birthday!
