YFPA 15th Anniversary Gala Sunday, November 5, 2017
In its 15th year, YFPA continues to deliver on the three pillars that define its mission as an organization—connecting and collaborating with local community partners; supporting the career development of Filipino professionals as well as the academic endeavors of high school students in the Bay Area; and serving the local communities through volunteering and stakeholder engagement. Last month, YFPA celebrated the 7th recipient of its annual scholarship award, as well as those students enrolling in summer immersion and baccalaureate programs through its partnership with the Academy of Art University.
On this night we celebrate with our partners as we raise money for next year’s YFPA scholarship recipients, the future progressive leaders that will initiate change in our community and beyond.
Performers: Christina Dunham Kristian Kabuay KABA UP
Speakers: Greg Montemayor, YFPA Co-Founder Neil Baquiran, YFPA Co-Founder Juslyn Manalo, Vice-Mayor, City of Daly City Rebecca Delgado Rottman, Vice-President Government and Community Relations, Academy of Art University
Your donations will support our annual Scholarship program and the services YFPA provides to the local Fil/Fil-Am community. Many thanks for your consideration and generosity!
WHEN: November 5, 2017 TIME & LOCATION: 6:00 PM at 1865 Post Street (San Francisco)
For almost 15 years, YFPA's monthly events in San Francisco and the surrounding Bay Area help friends, neighbors, and professionals in the Filipino American community connect, educate, and serve. Our events range from collaborations, partnerships, sponsorships, volunteerism and charitable outreach, professional development seminars, panel discussions, and of course, professional networking/social mixers.
This year, our new directive is the Tambayan, pilipino for "hangout place among friends". YFPA Tambayan is casual, fun, and builds relationships so that members and guests can build stronger networks. For the organizers, YFPA Tambayan also requires less expenditure of energy so that all our focus and volunteer energy is going into the most important activities of professional networking and building value in YFPA membership. We hope you can join us at all our Tambayan meetups this year!
