(think Hawai'i, crashing waves and dancing hula ladies...)
Beloved family, friends and colleagues, I’ve been extremely blessed with the greatest gift from God—a beautiful and wonderful family that is the center of my existence. On top of that, I’ve also been graced through my involvement in two important organizations in the Filipino community—Search To Involve Pilipino Americans (SIPA), where I’ve served as Executive Director for over 21 years, and Kayamanan Ng Lahi Philippine Folk Arts, which I co-founded in 1990.
This coming December 8th, I’ll be giving thanks to God for giving me the opportunity to celebrate my 5-0 birthday. However this celebration is not about me, it’s about the tremendous work that both my organizations do. Please join me and my family in a fête that will support these deserving organizations.
