Well hello there, reader! It’s been more than two months since I posted anything on my blog. So from now on, I’ll try to be more active. Before I talk about my actual topic for this post, I would like YOU to comment below about what you want me to write on (if there’s anything and if people actually read this).
Anyway, for my fourth entry, I would like to introduce to you my company, Cross and Arrow Events Management. So here’s an overview of what Cross and Arrow is all about.
1. Where did the name “Cross and Arrow” come from?
Honestly, it didn’t really take me long to think of a name. The name that I chose represents two things that are a big part of my life. First, the word “cross” represents my faith. Yes, I am a Christian. A follower of Christ. A Disciple. For me, this will always come first. No matter what happens, I’m a follow of Jesus first. 🙂 (Look out for my entry for Easter. Haha!)
Next, the word “arrow” represents where I go to college, De La Salle University. La Salle’s basketball team is called the Green Archers. Archers have bow and arrows. So hence, the word arrow.
2. What is the mission of Cross and Arrow?
Cross and Arrow was established in September 2011 for one main reason. Since I’m too lazy to type and explain everything in detail, I’ll just copy-paste the description found in the Facebook page (www.facebook.com/crossandarrow).
” It follows the footsteps of Beginnings at Twenty Plus, Inc. in promoting OPM. It aims to cater to the interests of the young generation, especially in bringing back and passing on the essence of Filipino Music.”
So basically, our main goal is to promote and support OPM. (Who’s with me?)
3. What have we done so far?
Cross and Arrow’s first ever event/project (along with Twenty Plus, Inc.) was a major concert at the Aliw Theater. It featured BBS and Kean Cipriano with Raimund Marasigan, Jay Durias, Buddy Zabala and other notable artists from different bands as guests. It was entitled One Stage, One Night, and it’s vision/mission was to promote and support OPM, especially to the youth.
Since then, the company has organized/produced three small events, two benefit events: Mission Possible and Mission Possible 2 (held in Grilla, Libis and 19 East respectively) and one gig production: Ground Zero (Amos Cafe, Kamias, Q.C.). All three events featured different up-and-coming bands.
4. What are the plans for the future?
I hope to produce more concerts and events with our mission as its purpose. However, I would also like to open Cross and Arrow’s services to individuals or groups who wish to mount events. Either way, Cross and Arrow would like to continue to create more events that will entertain and benefit other people.
5. How to contact Cross Arrow
Yes, this is the part where I shamelessly advertise ways on how to contact my company.
1) Through the Facebook Page. Just leave a wall post or send a message and I’ll try to reply to you as soon as I can.
2) By sending my an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
3) You can also text me, but I don’t want to post my number here. So you’ll have to find ways on how to get my number. :>
I guess that’s it. I hope I didn’t forget anything. By the way, if you find typos or grammatical errors, please forgive me. It’s already 5:15am as of this writing. (yes, I’m an insomniac)
Thanks for reading this far. I promise to write more entries that are more interesting than this (and with better writing).
UP NEXT: Easter Entry (Hopefully) and a post about a band that I manage. 🙂
