Blessings poured once more in the 7th and season-ender episode of “Grateful Tuesdays” when Ilocos Sur Mayor Chavit Singson gave out P200,000 to four lucky and outstanding citizens. 

Chemist Pinky Tobiano’s show “Grateful Tuesdays” gave recognition to the stories of a grandfather, a son, a father and a mother who have shown industry, perseverance and resilience amid poverty and crises.

The winners/honorees had a chance to talk to Singson who appeared via Zoom and sought advice on how to survive in their present situation.

But emotions were further stirred when Singson announced that each of them would receive P50,000 cash incentive. Singson was interviewed by Tobiano and co-host Yeng Constantino.

Singson also announced the good news about Gracia Telecom which will solve the citizenry’s problem on the Internet and debit cards.

The mayor also announced his program will grant five full college scholarships to deserving students. “Grateful Tuesdays” will select the five beneficiaries.
