In celebration of the Silver Jubilee of Ateneo de Manila High School  
Class of 1987, all are invited to the BLUE MARKET, happening on  
November 17 to 18, and 24 to 25, at the Ateneo de Manila grade school  
parking lot in front of the Blue Eagle Gym adjacent to Katipunan road.  
  The event serves as a special batch fund-raising project in support  
of social entrepreneurs, student business initiatives, and similar  
micro enterprises.  It will be for the benefit of the Tulong-Dunong  
Foundation and the Philippine Province of the Society of Jesus.

Not unlike the usual weekend bazaars full of great deals, curious  
finds, and gastronomic delights, the Blue Market serves up all that,  
and so much more.  Beyond providing a venue for buyers and sellers to  
come together, the Blue Market is a vehicle for helping social  
enterprises and student ventures take off at minimal cost, with a  
ready clientele.

For market-goers, this is a chance for spending time with family,  
touching base with old friends, forging new partnerships, relaxing,  
unwinding, and sharing blessings while making great new finds and  
savoring the joys of shopping.  It is a simple yet effective outlet  
for lending support to young companies and apostolate communities, and  
in so doing, taking part in nation-building and the empowerment of the  
less fortunate.

The Blue Market is many things to different people.  It is a unique  
and solid launch pad for young, commercial undertakings.  It is a  
practical learning lab for budding entrepreneurs.  It is a fun,  
festive, exciting, and new Ateneo tradition as we look forward to  
celebrate an exciting Christmas season in our community.
