Jollibee celebrates Independence Day with #PinoyAndProud spirit

Jollibee, the nation’s number one fastfood chain, threw the biggest, star-studded Independence Day celebration last June 11, 2016 at the Metrotent in Pasig City. The mega-event brought together world-class Pinoy talent for a grand salubong of the 118th anniversary of national independence.
