Jollibee’s one-of-a-kind and biggest birthday celebration was attended by thousands of guests all across the country making it the grandest event this year. The surprise party held at the Philippine International Convention Center Forum (PICC) in Manila was planned by the Jollitown gang, Hetty, Popo, Yum and Twirlie and was graced by the members of Jollibee Kids Club (JKC) together with their families and friends. 35 selected Jollibee branches nationwide joined the fun and momentous event through live streaming. Simultaneously, JKC members all over the nation, from Luzon to Mindanao were fortunate to be part of Jollibee’s historic birthday celebration.

Several highlights of the event:

- exciting party games and prizes
- interactive activities for the kids
- special song and dance numbers
There were also celebrities who graced and enjoyed the event like Ms. Christine Jacob-Sandejas who came in with her two kids, 11-year-old Gabbie and 4-year-old Jaime. “One thing that I really enjoyed was seeing all the kids have a wonderful time” she says. “That for me is what Jollibee is all about-bringing smiles to children, and really bringing the family together for some quality bonding time.”
She also agrees on encouraging individual approach to parenting for each child. “I have five kids and for me, all of them are different. As a parent, it’s important to get to know each child, spend time with them and know their strengths and weaknesses,” she says.
Anya, 8 y.o. and Nio, 3 y.o., kids of Tin-Tin Bersola-Babao were also present in the event wearing Jollibee’s color.
“My kids’ favorite part was when everyone surprised Jollibee onstage and his genuine reaction when he found out that his friends were there all along,” she says.
Ms. Tin-Tin was happy to see the delight in Nio’s eyes when he saw Jollitown come alive at the birthday bash. It served to enhance Nio’s reading experience of the Jollitown books and watching past Jollitown seasons since all the characters came alive in front of his own eyes.
