Solicitation to Celebrate the Philippine Independence Day.
To: The Philippine Communities of the North Texas Region and Friends of the Filipinos Who Wish to join us Celebrate the June 12 Independence Day.
This will be our 109th anniversary of the Philippine Independence for freedom gained under 300 years of domination from Spain. The event we celebrate is usually month long with the two biggest events being Pista Sa Nayon, which will be held on June 9 and a gala night on June 16. Pista Sa Nayon is an event wherein we feature an exposition of various Filipino foods as well as various Filipino products from Filipino churches and organizations. We also feature a Santa Cruzan which shows a cultural event
that is traditional during May of every year. We also present various
Filipino dances and feature Filipino bands that play various types of music
and will feature an all night dance after a short program that is especially
prepared every year for enjoyment of all attendants. There will be adult
and children’s games and awards of various prizes to the winner including an
essay contest. Around these two events, we have various sports festivities
including basketball, golf and bowling tournaments. During the gala event
it will feature further cultural presentations and a program honoring
Filipino leader who has contributed much to the promotion of the Filipino
culture and leadership in the area. We would like to get either your
response or contribution in order to help us defray the total expenses
during these traditional events.
You can do this in various ways such as setting up a booth during the vista
and gala celebration or placing an ad in our souvenir program or basically
just contributing any amount which we would appreciate. You can also buy
tickets for the gala night.
