Two Makati residents who recently celebrated their 100th birthday received P100,000 from Mayor Abby Binay in recognition of their contributions to the city.

Binay visited Esperanza Jacinto of Barangay Bangkal and Eugenio Palileo of Barangay Magallanes at their homes to personally give the P100,000 check and a plaque of recognition.

The mayor said it was an honor for her to meet and talk with the centenarians, who led enriching lives.

Jacinto was an entrepreneur who provided for her family through a small store.

Palileo, meanwhile, served as first lieutenant at the United States Armed Forces in the Far East (USAFFE).

Makati centenarians are entitled to a P100,000 cash gift and a plaque of recognition from the city government by virtue of City Ordinance No. 2012-099.
