FORMER ‘That’s Entertainment’ member, actress-singer Gem Castillo, now better known as ‘Mayora’ Gem Amante, wife of San Pablo City Mayor Vic Amante, has proven herself to be not just a trophy wife, a tag usually attached to most former actresses or beauty queens married to business or political figures.

Aside from being a doting mom to four good looking (and intelligent) children, Mayora Gem, on her own, watches over six orphanages, and keeps a number of college scholars under her wings.

She also serves as a conduit to poor sick people in availing costly medical attention and needs.

Her efforts didn’t go unnoticed as the organizers of the Diamond Excellence Awards has chosen her as an awardee and her life story will be featured as one of the Top 20 Stories of Inspire Magazine. The awarding ceremonies will be on September 27, 2022 at the Okada Hotel and Resorts Manila.

“Maski noong araw po na wala pa naman tayong masyadong kakayahan, talaga pong mahilig na akong tumulong,” says Mayora Gem. “Kaya nga po ngayon, dahil sa tulong ni Mayor (Vic) Amante, nagagawa ko na po ang mas malawakang pagtulong sa mga nangangailangan.”

The best compliments for her, though, are the good words of gratitude from the people of San Pablo City.
