BONGGA ang parangal na matatanggap ng Beautederm CEO and President na si Rhea Anicoche Tan sa gaganaping virtual awarding ceremony ng 4th EDDYS (Entertainment Editors’ Choice) na pinamamahalaan ng Society of Philippine Entertainment Editors (SPEEd). Kabilang si Ms. Rhea sa awardees sa ilulunsad na Isah V. Red Award bilang pagkilala at pag-alala sa yumaong founding president ng SPEEd na si Isah V. Red.
Makakasama ni Ms. Rhea sa mga unang tatanggap ng IVR award sina Senator Bong Revilla Jr., Angel Locsin, Kim Chiu, Ramon Ang, at Claire de Leon-Papa ng Unilab. Bibigyan sila ng parangal para sa kahanga-hanga at walang katulad na pagbabahagi ng tulong sa mga Pilipinong naapektuhan ng global health crisis.
Paliwanag pa ng SPEEd president na si Ian Farinas, “This recognition is given to individuals like him — a dynamic and spirited renaissance man with a deep love for God, country and community — who beyond the realm of entertainment has so enriched and made a difference in the lives of many, in his most colorful, gregarious and inimitable way.”
Kaya naman labis ang pasasalamat ni Ms. Rhea sa SPEEd sa kanyang post sa Facebook, “I thank my dearest friends from SPEEd for honoring me with the highest recognition of the annual EDDYS — the Isah V. Red Award!
“Tito Isah Red was so full of life and he embodied fortitude, excellence, and 100% dedication to his work as one of the country’s most respected entertainment editors. He was also fiercely loving and had a very kind heart.
“As he created a colorful and indelible difference to the world, I hope and pray that I too could emulate the amazing qualities he championed in making my own mark with the same gusto and flair for life that he exuded when he was still alive.
“This award humbles and inspires me to carry on in my life’s journey.
“Thank you very much SPEED from the bottom of my heart.”
