67th Anniversary and Induction Ball

We are pleased to announce the Filipino American Association of Pittsburgh’s 67th Anniversary and Induction Ball – Bridging Our Past, Present, and Future.

Filipino Americans are the second largest Asian American group in the nation, and the Pittsburgh region is home to over 8,000 Filipinos. Most are employed in various industries such as Health Care, Finance, Technology, Education, Government, and Retail & Entertainment Industries. Typically, our annual celebration draws more than 250 guests and this year we plan to make it even bigger and more special than ever.

This event is a chance for you to wear your Filipiniana gown or barong at the biggest formal Filipino gala in town. You can be the first to taste our signature Tanduay Rum cocktail. KDKA’s own Daisy Jade will guide us through the lineup, which includes amazing dance troupe performances and a personal message from the special guest speaker Loida Nicolas Lewis.

The month of October has been nationally designated as the Filipino American History Month, and during the Induction Ball we also plan to reflect on our stories and celebrate the significant role Filipinos have played in the City of Pittsburgh. In addition, we look forward to the upcoming year as we induct the new officers and board members, and present new initiatives by the Filipino American Association of Pittsburgh.

The dress code is Black Tie Optional.
