New York – Expect the 7th anniversary of the Fil-Am Press Club of New York (FAPCNY) to be fun, stylish and substantive in a community party on November 16, 2018 Friday at six in the evening.
The press club is now seven years old, and we are committed to continue our vibrant community press coverage in the East Coast. The “Patikim” (or taste in Pilipino) cocktail party will be in solidarity with friends and guests, including the Consul General Claro Cristobal and better half Ms. Marilou Cristobal, at the Grand Lobby of the Philippine Center on 556 5th Avenue, NYC 10036.
It will be fun and stylish through its dress code ‘just Crazy but-not-so Rich Asians.’ We will all wear our fabulous best, just to balance off the seriousness of our responsibilities as journalists. The event also aims to raise funds for the club’s programs. (To attend our party, please go to Eventbrite https://www.eventbrite.com/e/patikim-tickets-50937670945?aff=ebdshpsearchautocomplete)
“Patikim” will be definitely substantive. To deliver the special message on press freedom and responsibility as the cornerstone of democracy, we have Consul General Claro Cristobal and a special media personality as well.
During the party, FAPCNY will award the winners of the 1st FilAm History Month Essay Writing Contest with cash prizes and trophies. We are still open to entries for “What it means to be Fil-Am.” (Email entries to email@example.com; Read details at https://justcliqit.com/fil-am-press-club-of-new-york-holds-1st-fil-am-history-month-essay-contest/
We will have elegant, vibrant music by DJ Ernie Bugarin and a special sultry singer.
For a donation of $40 per ticket, you will definitely taste delectable cocktail provided by our generous sponsors Popsie’s, Mountain Province, Grace Carol Restaurant, Kabisera Kape, Ugly Kitchen, Flipeats, Herb-a-Base, Victory Chicken, and Elena’s Kitchen. So please, come and join us in this media-community solidarity night.
