CGY (Collective Group for the Youth) is a homegrown online publication spawned by a group of dedicated young Kagay-anons with the hopes to brandish the beautiful things their city has to offer. It serves as a virtual menagerie for Cagayan de Oro’s budding talents, artists, musicians as well as for all types of creative ventures in business or otherwise. A bi-monthly compilation of the city’s most relevant events and personalities, CGY aims to renew the Kagay-anon’s appreciation for its own brand of art and culture. It is a movement that seeks to breathe life into the city’s rustic charms, a celebration of its people, places and bounty. ♥
