Edwin D. Reyes – 2017 BMW Friend of the Marque

BMW (Bavarian Motor Works) founded in 1916 as an aircraft engine manufacturer from Munich, Germany grew to become a motorcycle and engine manufacturing firm in the 1920’s. By 1928, the company ultimately went into building automobiles and has become one of the world’s leading manufacturers of premium automobiles and motorcycles. It’s entry in the Philippine market in 1993 delighted brand aficionados and enthusiasts. Since then, BMW in the Philippines has become one of the most sought after premium automobile brand in the country.

The success of the BMW Marque, signaled BMW AG to recognize brand owners worldwide by creating an official BMW Clubs Community. The clubs are subdivided by continent and region (Europe, America, Africa, Australia and Asia Pacific). Each BMW club is independent of BMW. Locally, the BMW Car Club of the Philippines (BMWCCP) is the only official car club of BMW in the country recognized by the International Council of BMW Clubs. Established in 2001, BMWCCP is under the Asian umbrella of the BMW Clubs Community.

BMW AG recognizes individuals who feel an affinity and passion for their brand – enthusiasts who value BMW not merely as a manufacturer of high quality products but equally as a friend and partner.

Last December 2017 in Taipei, the German automaker awarded the prestigious “BMW Friend of the Marque” recognition to a Filipino – Edwin D. Reyes. This title and recognition is the first ever to be given to a BMW enthusiast in South East Asia.

Edwin served as the immediate past president of the BMW Car Club of the Philippines. During his five year term of office (2010-2015), he instituted program of activities that brought the BMW Marque closer to the hearts and minds of the Filipinos. Activities that not only catered to brand enthusiasts but programs that also involved Community Service Related projects. Partnering and giving support to the Philippine Red Cross, The Shepherd of the Hills Children’s Foundation and the World Wildlife Fund Philippines.

Edwin says that when we have the capacity and resources to do more for the improvement of others we should do all we can. We should always be a positive inspiration, a ray of light and a symbol of hope.

With numerous accolades under his belt including the prestigious 2016 BMW International Club of the Year Award given to his club (BMWCCP), the recognition and title is very much deserved for all his hard work and accomplishments. Another gentleman that we can be very proud to call a Filipino!

March 7, 2018, The Cliffs Golf Club goes into drive as people come in to be part of this year’s golf tournament. Golf lovers, near and far, came in to Poro Point – San Fernando, La Union, to participate in the said tournament and enjoy the rest of the events set for the day as part of the annual light festival or more known as Sillag Festival.

The golf tournament is set into place by the Poro Point Management Council (PPMC) with The Big Difference Communications as media partner and in participation with Thunderbird Resort and Casino. Along with it is the support of the Tourism Promotions Board under the helm of Director and Chief Operating Officer, Mr. Cesar D. Montano and that of the Department of Tourism. Sponsors of the event are as follow: Mc Donald’s, Skin White Lotion, Chocovron, 8 Layers Technologies, Inc., Paul and Harris Cafe, Mc Ilhenny Co Brand Products – makers of Tabasco, Folgers, Cara Ole and Mega Creations. Premium golf items are also up for grabs every raffle moment as the tournament progresses.


Set during the 2nd day of the 3-days festivities, the golf tournament is something of a tone-down but still energized event when compared to all the lights and fun fare activities for the day. What set this apart is the subtle dynamic energy that you feel as the game develops. As each player goes for a swing, you feel the excitement of hoping for a hole-in-one scenario or an impossible shot made possible at that time. Fun and friendly competition is simply the theme for the day.

Sillag’s golf tournament is one of the looked out for event in the festival. This year the expected number of players has increased. Joining this year’s golf tournament are Vince and Patricia Hizon, Anthony Suntay, Garry Lim, Epi Quizon and Rocco Nacino just to name a few. Same as the previous years, the golf tournament is expected to draw in watchers of the sport just to have a glimpse of known players and game development.

With the tee off set and putters, drivers and clubs all ready to be swung at a minute’s notice, we expect balls to fly true and far as the tournament progresses and a winner is declared.
