Even the Friday payday traffic could not stop the 11th MercedesTrophy Sponsors & Champions Night from kicking off last April 15, 2016 as Auto Nation Group, Inc. held this annual gathering to acknowledge their treasured sponsors and champions from the previous year.
Guests were treated to mouthwatering cocktails from expert in-house chefs of Makati Shangri-La. Felix R. Ang, President of Auto Nation Group, Inc. opened the intimate ceremony attended by ambassador friends, representatives from the tournament sponsors and players who have made a mark in last year’s MercedesTrophy. ANG executives and other special guests were also present. The event was also graced by Shangri-La’s Area General Manager Alain Borgers and Makati Shangri-La’s Resident Manager Nicolas Chammaa who shared a few words to welcome everyone. The much-awaited Putting Challenge, which was situated in the patio garden, excited the participants as they demonstrated their putting skills while enjoying shots of Johnny Walker Gold Label Reserve and Asia Brewery’s Brew Kettle and Asahi beers, while cigar afficionados lit expensive maduros courtesy of the famed cigar maker Tabacalera Incorporada.
The MercedesTrophy Philippines has always been well-supported by Makati Shangri-La. In this year’s upcoming MercedesTrophy Invitational, they will feature the Sage Bespoke Grill during the tournament proper at Santa Elena.
