THIS year’s Sinulog earned at least P2.2 million from ticket sales alone.
Sinulog Foundation Inc. (SFI) executive director Ricky Ballesteros said their income will still increase as they have yet to compute their earnings from the registration fees for the photo contests and other competitions.
Ballesteros said the ticket sales this year are much bigger than in 2010, although he could not recall offhand how much was earned last year.
In an interview with Sun.Star Cebu, Ballesteros said their income from the tickets already includes the sales during the Sinulog sa Kabataan sa Lalawigan, Sinulog sa Kabataan sa Dakbayan and during the Sinulog grand parade.
For the grand parade last Jan. 16, SFI printed some 5,900 tickets, ranging from P500 to P600 each.
Meanwhile, the SFI said they will be giving awards to contingents that have won 10 times in the Sinulog grand parade. (more)
