The Miss CDO Organizing Committee of the City Tourism Council, Higalaay Festival Committee and PLDT will bring the Aces and Queens team of Gaffud for a 2 day workshop and he will also sit as one of the pageant judges of Miss Cagayan de Oro Pageant on August 13 at the Atrium of Limketkai Center.

“This is by far one of the biggest happenings for our local pageant- having the word class beauty queen maker come to the City to share his expertise on runway coaching and personality development for aspiring beauty queens” says Gean T. Cesar, head of Miss CDO organizing Committee. There will be a presscon to be held for Gaffud and his team and other tourism related activities during his entire stay in the City.
