Last Saturday, SANTA SPECIAL 2011: A Christmas Tribute for Cancer Warriors finally pushed through. It would not have been possible without the many people who did not hesitate to volunteer. Here are a few pictures from the tribute party, held at Shift Bar in Makati.

The Face Plays Photobooth provided free pictures for everyone to take home with them. (Thanks to Ken and to Paola and her mom who are such troopers!)
