The local government of Cagayan de Oro is planning for a big homecoming for the newly crowned Miss Universe 2015, Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach but that is if the pageant organizers permits her to visit her second hometown.
Wurtzbach considers the city as her second hometown next to Manila even if she lives in the city for a short span of time, and even knowing that she doesn’t have a relative in the city. Pia Wurtzbach considered the city as such for she lived there before her parents separated.
“Just like the homecoming we had for her when she won the Binibining Pilipinas title, we are looking forward on holding another one to our Miss Universe,” Moreno said.
Pia Wurtzbach homecoming will be from January 23 until 28.
Rufus Rodriguez, Cagayan de Oro Rep. has written to the chair of Binibininng Pilipinas Charities Inc., Stella Marquez Araneta, complaining of why his city turn out to be left out of the Miss Universe’ tour for her homecoming this month.
“I read in various reports that her itinerary will include a press conference, charity work, a courtesy call on Malacañang, the Senate and the House of Representatives, a homecoming special at Smart-Araneta Coliseum and a grand parade starting at Araneta Center in Quezon City, stopping in Manila and Makati, then going back to Quezon City,” Rodriguez wrote. “CDO has been left out of her itinerary,” he said with regret.
“While I understand that her stay in the country will only be for a short time, a visit to Cagayan de Oro City will definitely enhance her experience and she will feel the love and pride of her fellow Kagayanons who will certainly roll out the red carpet for her,” he added.
Rodriguez also congratulates Pia for her victory and designating her as “Ambassador of Goodwill from the Philippines and Cagayan de Oro.”
