THE well-loved Fanny Uy is known as a pillar of strength not only to her family but to her dear friends.
Her stern demeanor is instantly softened by her well-known philanthropy.
This combination of magnificence and magnanimity gathered Cosmo Iloilo’s crème de la crème from the business, social and political worlds to toast her 80th birthday celebration at the elegant Jade Ballroom of Grand Xing Imperial Hotel recently.
Warmly welcoming everyone to Fanny’s milestone celebration were her children led by Dr. Roland Uy and children, Dr. Fanny Marian Uy, Dr. Cecilia May Uy-Tan, Dr. John Roland Uy, Carl Joseph Uy along with Marilou Uy-Chua and husband Jerry Chua and their children John Santi Chua, Audrey Marie Chua, Jerric Martin Chua; Robert Uy with wife Jane Chua-Uy and children Richard Jason Uy, Robin Jarvis Uy, Ralph Justin Uy, and Renzo John Uy; Roger Uy with wife Meg Garcia-Uy and children Steven Uy and Josh Uy; and Fanny’s youngest son, Ronnie Uy with wife Joydee Young-Uy and their children Ryan Justin Uy and Raphael John Uy.
Awesome hip-hop dance numbers performed by the celebrant’s grandsons brought the house down.
Not to be outdone, the Uy family’s close friends, sisters Pane and Beverly Rosales, performed a scintillating jazz number and an outstanding flamenco dance.
Beaming in the pink of health and ageless beauty, the celebrant wore an elegant peach gown by Manila-based fashion designer Larry Espinosa.
She was met with red roses, hugs and kisses by hundreds of well-wishers as she went around the venue to greet one and all!
To Tita Fanny, here’s to more years of celebration! Cheers and God bless!
