The Yahoo! Purple Hunt 3.0 Family Edition is staging a Finale Event which will happen today, November 18, 2011, at the SM Mall of Asia Music Hall.
Fifty family teams who advanced from the preliminary four-week long online adventure will compete against one another in a series of games. Five rounds of games are prepared and the participants are trimmed down to smaller groups after each round. Each eliminated team will receive corresponding prizes such as anti-virus software, phones, Tattoo MyFi broadband sticks from Yahoo! Purple Hunt 3.0 Family Edition co-presenter Globe Telecom, party and flight packages, and a condominium unit as grand prize for the last standing team.
“We are privileged to be a co-presenter of this online initiative. We feel strongly about advocating responsible use of internet, being a provider of broadband services like Tattoo,” Yoly Crisanto, Head of Globe Corporate Communications. “Through the program, Yahoo and Globe aim to educate parents and their children about the proper use of the World Wide Web in a fun and engaging way. We hope that the families who joined Purple Hunt would continue to spread the word about responsible internet use.”
Walk-ins can also participate in stage games such as Yahoo! Bring Me, Multiple Choice Game, Y! Hunt, Draw Your Avatar and Longest Yodel, as well as on-ground booths such as Yahoo! Mail, Yahoo! Messenger, Yahoo! OMG, and Yahoo! Safely. Making the event more special is a raffle activity with big prizes up for grabs. Providing entertainment during the event is top band The Dawn.
