Due to the ongoing pandemic crisis, large events are forbidden by law. Rather than push through with what was supposed to be a grand celebration for his 75th birthday, our dear friend businessman Sonny Tanchanco — popularly known as the Salsa King during his disco days — and his partner, former model and actor John Gaddi, decided to hold a small gathering for family and close friends while observing social distancing at their Magallanes residence.

The sumptuous dinner included a small program featuring numbers from dear friends Dr. George Sarakinis, Ping Valencia, Chuchi Villar, Milo Bondoc and businesswoman Emmy Gonzalez. This was highlighted by touching numbers from the celebrant’s children JP, Brian and his wife Jade, and only daughter Jonina who surprised everyone with their musical prowess.

Providing the music was Marcy David together with singer Lilybeth Garcia who sang popular songs.

As an added surprise, an impromptu fashion show was presented featuring the colorful PPEs designed by Club Bulakeno Former President Milo Bondoc, which is part of a fundraising project of Unity Philippines.

This was indeed a memorable evening as friends reunite to show love to our treasured friend. Happiest of birthdays to you, dearest Sonny, and more celebrations to come.
