Can a single photograph be worth almost US$ 25 billion* (or over a trillion pesos in today’s peso-dollar exchange rate)?
Sen. Chiz Escudero and Heart Evangelista’s wedding might have broken a record of sorts in having the most affluent men acting as godfathers. And, the photo, which has been shared on social media since the Feb. 15 wedding, serves as proof. Based on published reports on these individuals, specifically in Forbes Magazine, their combined net worth is US$25 billion or PhP 1.1 trillion.
Call that a wedding for the ages as the country’s richest men gathered for this single event. And probably, this bodes well for the Bicolano senator, who has a bright political future ahead.
And let’s brace for more such group pics in a few days, as the grand wedding reception will take place on February 18 at Blue Leaf Filipinas. ABS-CBN’s Karen Davila shared some photos of the prominent sponsors of the lovely couple.
In this post, Chiz and Heart are accompanied by Sen. Grace Poe, Grace’s husband Neil Llamanzares, Ayala Corp. president Fernando Zobel, and Megaworld Corp. chair Andrew Tan.
In what can be called the ultimate group shot, Mr. and Mrs. Escudero is accompanied by San Miguel president and CEO Ramon Ang, Zobel, Tan, ABS-CBN Publishing president and CEO Ernie Lopez (representing ABS-CBN chair Gabby Lopez), SM Prime Holdings president Hans Sy, and Cebu Pacific president and CEO Lance Gokongwei.
Also, New San Jose Builders owner Jerry Acuzar, Alphaland chair Bobby Ongpin, GMA-7 Pres. Atty. Felipe Gozon, former Rizal Rep. Jack Duavit, Viva Entertainment chair and CEO Vic Del Rosario and veteran actor Eddie Garcia are also part of the epic group shot. *The estimated figure is based on Forbes magazine’s list of the Philippines’ 50 richest of 2014.
