Backyard Grill At The Park Goes to Loyola Grand Villas

There is something about the balmy wind of summer that immediately urges one to create a lasting memory filled with fun and excitement. While some opt to leave the metro for an escapade, there are those who choose to stay and bask in the warmth of the season with the company of family, close friends, and neighbors.

Hinge Inquirer Publications (HIP), a member of the Inquirer Group of Companies and the publisher of the country’s most popular free magazines, connects with the community through one of its signature events, Backyard Grill At The Park. Launched last year, this event has become synonymous not only to good food and great entertainment, but it has also been known as a fun and gracious way of giving back. “Instead of asking for a premium for being part of this event, we make all concessionaires donate 30% of their profit to a charity of their choice,” says Bea Ledesma, Group Publisher for HIP. “HIP is the pioneer of this kind of event and we take pride that people are always ready to join us in our worthy cause,” she continues.


After its successful legs in Ayala Alabang and Urdaneta Village, Backyard Grill At The Park now goes north to The Gardens at Loyola Grand Villas in Quezon City, on April 25, Saturday, 4:30 p.m. Apart from the delectable offerings from Scarsdale, Frango’s, Malcolm’s Burgers, and Kalookies, there will be activities such as arts and crafts, DIY, and a giant Jenga to keep kids and kids at heart entertained. Music courtesy of indie pop duo Reese and Vica will definitely round up the summer mood.

Backyard Grill At The Park has been of service to a number of charitable institutions like White Cross Orphanage, Museo Pambata Foundation, Inc., Futkal, and Move.Org to name a few. Backyard Grill At The Park is brought to you by HIPEvents, and is made possible by Crate & Barrel, Robinsons Land Corporation, and Hinge Inquirer Publications.
