I personally think that building personal relationship and sharing good food and good drinks build trust and relationships – be it personal or business. Although it is not widely advertised, I am glad to know that the German Club Manila has helped the poor and victims of calamities.
“This strong commitment towards Philippines and its people is being upheld and further intensified to this date by the Club’s over 500 members. As in all our events, a considerate part of the proceeds of the Oktoberfest will go to our charity projects” says Per-Andre Hoffman, German Club Manila President.
It was a rainy morning when we got to Sofitel but the sun suddenly appeared to greet the fun fair. The changing weather didn’t sway the fun vibe of the beer fest! It was awesome to dance to traditional Bavarian Oktoberfest music and German party songs! The kind that I have only learned from my friend in Austria! (hello Sabine! I miss you!).
PS. I heard they are raffling off over a million worth of prizes (proceeds go to the German Club’s welfare projects)! Cheers for good food, good drinks and good causes!
