FOR their efforts in promoting forgotten Filipino Catholic values, the stars of Eat Bulaga’s “Kalye Serye” segment—Maine “Yaya Dub” Mendoza, Alden Richards and Wally Bayola—along with its producers were cited by the Catholic Social Media Summit version 4 (CSMSv4) on Sunday.
“[It is] because of the very inspiring message they give during the ‘Kalye Serye’ [about] virtues, values, chivalry, modesty, morality, respect for elders, etc. This is the kind [of show] that we don’t see on TV anymore,” said Mon Bandril, a member of the awards committee.
Mendoza thanked all their supporters after accepting the award. “Maraming maraming salamat po. AlDub you all. Maraming salamat, AlDub Nation. Para sa inyo po itong lahat!” Mendoza said during the ceremony at Santa Rosa City Hall Auditorium in Santa Rosa City, Laguna, formally ending the fourth installment of the two-day CSMSv4.0.
The Catholic Social Media Awards (CSMA) winners are:
Aldub Nation. Catholic Social Media Achievement Award for spreading “Kalye Serye” values online through inspirational posts and tweets.
Nicomaine ‘Yaya Dub’ Dei Capili Mendoza. Catholic Social Media Achievement Award for being influential among the young, especially the online community, in the propagation of Christian values.
Tape Inc. Catholic Social Media Achievement Award for producing the “Kalye Serye” segment which gives importance to promoting treasured Christian family values that transcend their homes and inspire other people.
Walter James ‘Wally’ Bayola. Catholic Social Media Inspirational Award for his conversion story being instrumental in spreading virtues, good values and morality in the online community.
Richard ‘Alden’ Faulkerson Jr. Catholic Social Media Award for serving as a role model to the youth, most especially the online community, in his portrayal of role that exercises chivalry and traditional Filipino courtship. The Eat Bulaga talents and producers are the first recipients of the CSMA. Alden Richards could not be present during the simple ceremonies because of engagements in Japan.
