Event description

Description

In celebration of the Filipino History Month, the National Federation of the Filipino American Associations (NaFFAA) Region V is holding its Filipiniana 2018 Gala to benefit one of our member organization – MENDING FACES that was founded in 2010 by a passionate, highly experienced group of medical professionals and others to make a life-changing difference for children born with facial deformities. Their mission is to help families with children born with facial deformities like cleft lip, cleft palate, and other deformities restore hope and have a brighter future. Since 2010 they have performed hundreds of life-changing surgeries in the Philippines and Columbia.

With our previous benefit galas, we were able to help fishermen and their families regain their source of livelihood by purchasing fishing boats in Bicol when the area was hit by a typhoon on a Christmas day; Helped rebuild an elementary school and multi-purpose buildings in Ormoc and Tacloban that were destroyed by super typhoon Yolanda; Shipped two 40-foot containers of medical equipment and supplies donated by Project Cure after typhoon Frank devastated the province of Aklan; NaFFAA and its member organizations also funded Gawad Kalinga Colorado Village (35 houses) after a landslide in Cabagan, Isabela, Philippines, to mention some of our projects. NaFFAA Region V takes enormous pride in all that it and its members have accomplished.

This year, we’re hoping to raise more to be able to help more children with facial deformities and allow them to lead productive lives in their community.

You can contribute to these efforts by purchasing a ticket, donating an item for our silent auction, or become a sponsor. A local Filipino-American band will be playing a mix of Tagalog and English songs. Dinner will be accompanied with performances by different cultural dancers and other entertainment.
