The trophies were received by Cuyo mayor Andrew Ong and Balanga City Administrator Rodolfo de Mesa, representing Mayor Francis Garcia. Each delivered his acceptance message, thanking LCC for inspiring them to push their programs further through the Awards. Both vowed sustainability of their existing programs and creation of new ones that are deemed beneficial to the community and the population as a whole. The program came to a close at four in the afternoon.
