The magnificent finished products were later auctioned to selected guests after the dinner, hosted by the organizers Marlene Ong, owner of MOs Design, a high-end furniture store and art gallery, in partnership with marketing company, GeiserMaclang. Proceeds of the auction were donated to Autism Society Philippines to support its programs and services.
