LUNA, LA UNION – The Home Development Mutual Fund (HDMF) otherwise known as the Pag-IBIG Fund in La Union will sponsor anew a mass wedding in time for the Valentine’s Day.

Rachael H. Gallano, supervising marketing specialist of Pag-IBIG Fund – La Union, said the mass civil wedding on February 14 dubbed as “I Do, I Do Araw ng Pag-Ibig” will be in partnership with the local government of Luna.

“This is a nationwide project of Pag-IBIG Fund to help couples save time and money for their wedding. In La Union, the wedding of 110 couples will take place at the popular Luna watch tower,” Gallano said.

To be able to tie the knot, Gallano said one or both of the couples must be a Pag-IBIG member. If not, they are required to apply for membership and remit an initial P100 savings.

Pag-IBIG Fund will sponsor the decorations and set up of the venue which will be Moroccan-themed, symbolic rings, headdress and bouquet of the bride, as well as snacks.

The municipality of Luna, on one hand, will shoulder the marriage license fee, stage, lights, and sound system. Mayor Vic Marron will officiate the wedding.

Expenses for the wedding gown or suit and required documents such as birth certificate and certificate of no marriage will be handled by the couples.

“Cash and vacation packages will be raffled off in lieu of the house and lot to benefit more couples,” Gallano informed.

Interested couples may register at Luna Municipal Social Welfare Office or the Pag-IBIG office at Government Center, Sevilla in San Fernando City, La Union. JNPD, PIA-1 / ABN
