Security Bank held its yearly celebration of the Moon Festival with a series of Mid-Autumn Client Appreciation Dinners for its valued customers in various areas. The Moon Festival is a popular lunar harvest tradition observed yearly by the Chinese to celebrate togetherness and good fortune.
Security Bank holds its own version of this tradition every year – the perfect time to celebrate the lasting partnerships with its clients. The key highlight of every Moon Festival event is the traditional dice games, in which every player gets to bring home exciting prizes. For this year, the bank held four Moon Festival events in Baguio, Cabanatuan, Muntinlupa and Ortigas.
Security Bank President and CEO Alfonso ‘Yogi’ Salcedo, Jr. cited the significance of these gatherings in keeping close ties with loyal customers. “Just as the Chinese spend the Moon Festival through family reunions and bonding, we at Security Bank also take this opportunity to renew our bonds with our clients to celebrate years of fruitful partnerships. It’s our own simple way of giving thanks and showing how much we value our relationships with them.”
