SAN FRANCISCO – Recently, the Mayors Office in San Francisco hosted a gala for the Filipino community, in celebration of Filipino culture and history, as well as achievements. These kababayans said Filipino pride should be celebrated, not just during Filipino-American History Month, but all year-round.
“Celebrations like these inspire the younger generation of Filipino-Americans to know and appreciate their heritage, their contributions to the larger American community,” Philippine Deputy Consul Jaime Ascalon said.
