This year marks the 75th Araw Ng Dabaw celebration for all Davaeoños.
One of the highlights is the search of the Mutya ng Dabaw which was held last
March 14, 2012 at the Davao City
or the Almendras Gym. Marriane Mae Te, a 21 year old print model and an AB
Hotel and Restaurant Management graduate of the Philippine Women’s College was
crowned as the Mutya ng Dabaw 2012. Miss Dorothy Maruel Ibañez, a registered
nurse was crowned as Diwa ng Davao
or first runner up. Miss Jhoanna Myles Te, a registered nurse also was crowned
as the Sinag ng Dabaw or second runner-up. An AB Communication Arts graduate
from the University of the Immaculate Conception, Maria Theresa Tan bag the
third runner-up or the Pag-asa ng Dabaw, while Miss Jazzel Therese Gomez an
Ateneo de Davao University law student bag the fourth runner-up.
The coronation night ended successful and everyone is invited to celebrate
with us. As Marriane Mae Te said “living in Davao
is close to perfection as it is the only place that offers the beauty and bounty
of the highlands and the islands”.
