Watch for a cause: P1 from cinema admission fees to go to QC Red Cross


The Quezon City chapter of the Philippine Red Cross will benefit from a P1 increase in the admission fees of cinemas in Quezon City this month.

This after Mayor Herbert Bautista signed City Ordinance 2781-2018, which imposes a P1 hike on the admission fees of all cinemas in Quezon City for January.

The ordinance, authored by Councilor Eufemio Lagumbay, is aimed at helping the Philippine Red Cross’ Quezon City chapter implement its programs and activities.

The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) has been active in the country since 1959 and established a permanent presence in the Philippines in 1982.
