Guam - Prubechu, Guamstyle Clothing, and O'Bros Entertainment are all up and coming businesses started by a group of friends. Although separate businesses, it was inspiration and support from each other that pushed each of these entrepreneurs to follow their dreams.

Today GVB general manager Karl Pangelinan, honored them as they signed a pledge to spread the Hafa Adai spirit. "In taking that risk  you're also doing something that we're very proud of here at the Bureau, and that's really spreading the Hafa Adai spirit out and abroad and helping us do our job here at GVB," he explained.

All three businesses are dedicated to promoting the Chamorro culture, and in an effort to give back to the community, they will also be throwing a beach cleanup this Saturday called "Meet Us Halfway" which will start from Hilton and Outrigger and end at Fujita Beach. The event begins at 12pm.
