I’ll be in Vallejo to participate in an showcase benefiting Bayanihanclinic.org.
Date: Sunday June 28th, 2009
Title : “Barongs of Our Fathers”
Honoring our Great Filipino Fathers
Extended celebration of Father’s Day
The milestone of the event will be an exhibition of displays created by Filipino Families in the Vallejo Community. The event will also include stations for sponsors and vendors. The evening will conclude with performances by local Filipino performers. As for the desired outcome of this event, I would like to foster a sense of unity and compassion within the families and overall community.
Proceeds will go directly to the Bayanihan Clinic located in Sacramento, CA. This Clinic is a UC Davis student based clinic that provides culturally and linguistically sensitive primary care to the underserved Filipino population, particularly Filipino World War II Veterans who were stripped of their benefits by FDR. Since more of them, sadly, are dying, they have expanded their mission to include recent immigrants and the general uninsured population. For more information, please visit Bayanihanclinic.org.
