Avida Land, one of the leading mid-market real estate developers in the country, recently celebrated Grand Neighbor Day with a series of fun and exciting activities that brought families, friends and communities together, hoping to rekindle the spirit of neighborly values among residents.
Now on its 2nd year, Avida’s GND celebration adapted the theme “Better Together” in enjoining seven of its communities nationwide encompassing both condominium and house and lot communities. Among the communities that joined include San Rafael Estates and San Antonio Heights in Batangas, Avida Village Northpoint in Bacolod, Avida Towers Vita in Vertis North, Avida Towers 9th Ave in Bonifacio Global City, and Centrio Tower in Cagayan de Oro.
“We are delighted to have hosted once again the Grand Neighbor Day where we were able to further forge a deeper sense of neighborliness amongst our residents and communities. This has been our formula for a great neighborhood, to foster good relationships because it’s always better together. That’s what make Avida stand out as a real estate developer,” said Avida Marketing Head, Tess Tatco.
The celebration was kicked off with residents reciting the Grand Neighbor Pledge, a hallmark tradition which encourages residents to rekindle among themselves, the spirit of ‘neighborly values’ or pakikipagkapwa.
Avida residents were then treated to the fun and exciting activities that encouraged residents to reach out to new friends next door.
Among the activities were community building games, which truly proved to be effective as it created a sense of trust and security among the residents. Meanwhile, kids and kids at heart also enjoyed a Halloween Trick or Treat in celebration of Halloween.
Kids and kids at heart also got to try their painting skills with the Avida ‘Wall of Smile’, installed in all participating communities. The participants were also able to snap creative poses using the life-sized window frames that they then shared on social media.
Adding to the success of the celebration is the Dati Puti Perfect Adobo Challenge in partnership with NutriAsia. The cooking competition was hosted to the communities in Batangas, Metro Manila and Bacolod, which paid tribute to the beloved traditional Filipino dish “adobo” using the perfect pares of Datu Puti Toyo at Suka.
The residents were challenged to create their most creative and innovative version of adobo using the Datu Puti products. Winners received home appliances as their prizes. And in addition, all participants meanwhile received a Datu Puti Adobo Series Pack.
“The activities for this year’s Grand Neighbor Day were all crafted with the “Better Together” thought in mind. And we were really glad to see the Avida residents interacting and having fun at the same time. This way, we hope that the residents have forged a mentality that there’s a neighbor next door that they can count on anytime,” stressed by Tatco.
“A positive and happy community is the kind of place people would want to be in. That’s why creating initiatives such as the Grand Neighbor Day is our way to build a sustainable community of inspired and motivated people. And through this, we hope to attract potential residents who would want to be part of the Avida family. This year was huge and we can’t wait for the next Grand Neighbor Day to begin as we are doubling our efforts to reach more people out there looking for their dream home,” concluded by Tatco.
