“WE are honored to sponsor the Miss Filipina International since its ideals of nurturing women who are beautiful inside and out perfectly align with iSkin’s commitment to build confidence with services that refresh and re-energize,” said Richard Maghanoy and Imee Ong-Maghanoy, owners of iSkin Beverly Hills, in a recent joint statement.
Miss Filipina International (MFI), now owned by Geoffrey Jimenez, chairman of the board of directors of Worldwide Media Entertainment Corporation, lauded the sponsorship of iSkin, which has a penthouse spa in Beverly Hills.
In addition to the previously announced top prize of either a BMW 3 Series car or a $10,000 cash prize, the winner will also receive a $10,000 gift certificate from iSkin Beverly Hills in the prestigious pageant that will be held on August 5 in The Beverly Hilton’s International Ballroom, the venue of the Golden Globe Awards, the Academy nominees luncheon, Clive Davis’ pre-Grammy party and other events.
Other prizes include $5,000 cash and a $10,000 gift certificate from iSkin for the first runner-up, who will be crowned Miss Tourism; and a $2,500 cash prize and a $5,000 gift certificate from iSkin for each of the second, third and fourth runners-up.
“Having iSkin on board is another big step in our commitment to give the best incentives to Filipinas all over the world to join,” said Jimenez, a Filipino American community leader, arts and culture patron.
MFI also offers the exciting incentive that the top three winners will be eligible to compete in Miss Universe Philippines (MUP) next year.
