Ms. Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach with Jonas Gaffud.
Beauty Queen maker Jonas Gaffud is scheduled to come to Cagayan de Oro next month with his training team to conduct a workshop for Miss CDO candidates and other aspiring local beauty queens.
The Miss Cagayan de Oro 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. He will also sit as one of the judges for the Miss Cagayan de Oro Pageant on August 13 at the Atrium of Limketkai Center.
Gaffud is known for his award winning team of beauty queens and trainors. Among the beauty queens he took under their wing are Megan Young (Miss World 2013), Ariella Arida (Miss Universe 2013 – 3rd Runner-up), Janine Tugonon (Miss Universe 2012-1st Runner-Up), Shamcey Supsup (Miss Universe 2011 – 3rd Runner-up) and Venus Raj (Miss Universe 2010 – 4th Runner-up) and most recently, Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach who carried Cagayan de Oro as her hometown during the Binibining Pilipinas pageant in 2015.
“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,” said Gean T. Cesar, head of Miss CDO organizing Committee.
There will be a presscon to be held for Gaffud and his team, as well as other tourism related activities during his entire stay in the City. (Press Release from Miss CDO Organizing Committee)
