The Most Elegant Circus in the World, Varekai: Cirque du Soleil
Unified by one shining symbol, two global icons come together to invite you to a brilliant experience.
Sun Life Financial is a proud sponsor of Varekai™ by Cirque du Soleil® which opens on June 22 under the Blue-and-Yellow Grand Chapiteau at the Luneta, across the Quirino Grandstand.
Pronounced as ver·ay·’kie meaning “wherever” in the Romany language of the gypsies, Varekai brings you into a captivating forest inhabited by whimsical and enchanted creatures.
In celebration of its 116th year in the country, Sun Life is giving away 116 tickets to lucky winners thru the “Experience the Sun, Experience Cirque du Soleil” promo. Interested parties must log-in to www.sunlife.com.ph and answer a simple question about Sun Life. Moreover, participants may upload a video sharing any experience they have with the Company for a chance to win a free trip to New York City, USA.
The online promo can only be accessed from sunrise to sunset (from 6am to 6pm), Mondays through Fridays, from May 23 to June 17, 2011.
“We’re thrilled to be a sponsor of Cirque du Soleil and align their awe-inspiring tour de force performances with Sun Life’s brand,” says Sun Life Philippines President and CEO Riza Mantaring. “Both of us share the sun as our core symbol and we both trace our roots back to Canada. We look forward to showcasing how bright life is under our sun and sponsoring Varekai is a preview of that.”
“We’re very excited to have Sun Life Philippines on board as an official sponsor, “says Ross Meltzer, Corporate Alliances Director at Cirque du Soleil. “The sponsorship is a great match for both of us, as Cirque du Soleil seeks partnerships with companies who share the same attributes, such as excellence, performance and engagement.”
