With the theme: “Bayanihan and Gift-Giving,” the agency has allocated P26.7 million to fund its grand gift-giving mission that runs from Nov. 29 to Dec. 20, 2012. PAGCOR’s Pamaskong Handog event began in December 2010 under the initiative of the agency’s new management as part of its core commitment to reach out to the less privileged sectors of society. The successful staging of the “Pamaskong Handog ng PAGCOR: 12 Days of Christmas” in 2010 inspired the PAGCOR management to make the event a yearly tradition.
