Message from Rosabel Hill, President of We Filipinos Inc:

On behalf of We Filipinos Inc., I wanted to Thank Everyone for their support and participation last October 29, 2016 at the  Filipino Pride Day! Cultural Event. Despite the other events we had to contend with, our attendance level was wonderful. The day was beautiful with the crowds enjoying the entertainment and visiting our vendors. We had over 25 sponsors and vendors who without their support, FPD could not have possible. Our volunteers as always, were great, they continued to help make the day seamless. And as for our Committee Heads and Fil-Am organizations, WELL DONE! Filipino Pride Day is a one day event, that requires many hours of hard work and I cannot say enough how grateful I am for their dedication to the mission and vision which has made the event a success year after year.
I would like to thank the following Individuals and Fil-Am organizations who deserve the recognition for their faithful commitment: Cheryl Carangue, Doreen Gross, Nida Escobar, Dr. Francis Ong, Mariel Manalo, Faith Ordillas, Melanie Hisole, Joey Cronologia, Tess Paez, Cecile Bascarisa, Remi Ventura, Chi Mejia, Eric Garong, Luis Jocson, Philippine Medical Society, FICCA, Cavite, Knights of Rizal, Philippine Nurses Association, Legacy of Care and Visayas-Mindanao Association.
I am honored to work with such a talented group of individuals. It is through their example as a collective group we can continue to motivate the next generations to be the positive change in this world and encourage and inspire them to take pride in their heritage and share their culture with everyone they meet.
Thank You for All that You do for Our Community!
