The cast of Hawak Kamay starring Piolo Pascual, Iza Calzado and Nikki Gil

It was a hot afternoon but that didn't stop us from going to the family day of the "Hawak Kamay" (Holding Hands) cast at Hospicio De San Jose in Manila. It's a shelter for abandoned kids and elderly people managed by the Sisters of Charity, bless them for doing this! It was simple and well attended. Tons of sponsors were also there showing support for the cause and the artists of the show. The show stars Piolo Pascual who will play the role of Gin, a frustrated singer, a drunkard and a man with no direction... who later finds himself taking care of orphaned kids. Iza Calzado plays Atty. Bianca Magpantay, Nikki Gil will be Meann who will play as the two ladies in his life.The kid superstars Zaijian Jaranilla will play Emong, Xyriel Manabat plays Dara, Andrea Brillantes plays Lorrie and Yesha Camile (of famed Promil Ishine) will play Ningning.

Andrea Brillantes danced a bit for the kids, Xyriel Manabat sang and danced for the lolas and Zaijian Jaranilla sang and danced with the others to start off the program. You can really see that the orphans and elderly women enjoyed it because their smiles were priceless.

Piolo Pascual went in front and sang with the kids, I could hear the elderly women and shelter staff giggle a bit when he did that. 

Axel Torres was there too, he'll be playing the role of Benj. He just came out of the Big Brother house and he's already got a project this big! He was really happy. I congratulated him when he was about to go out of the venue and he said a simple "Thanks!".. I like it when they do that.

Here's the trailer:

It will show this July 7th replacing the program Mirabella which will end on the 4th of July. It's a family series that will show a different light on what a family is and how a man will strive to make this work even if he's struggling to make ends meet. So make sure you don't miss it!
