Kulturang Pilipino: A Celebration of Filipino Culture & Performing Arts
The City of Santa Rosa is celebrating it's sesquicentennial anniversary in 2018 and a series of events and activities are planned to mark this 150 year milestone.
The Sonoma County chapter of the Filipino American National Historic Society (FANHS) had scheduled an October 2017 fundraiser that was cancelled due to the wine country wildfires. In the spirit of hope and renewal for friends and families throughout the community struggling to rebuild and recover from devastating losses, the joyous celebration of community and cultural arts will be held on Saturday, April 7 at the Santa Rosa Veterans Memorial Building.
The program will include dance, music, and poetry performances by renowned Filipino artists Sammay Dizon, Alexis Canillo, Janet Stickmon, and the San Francisco Kulintang Project, with Masters of Ceremony Charles Zabala and Christi Kessler.
Proceeds from the event will benefit FANHS Sonoma’s Scholarship Endowment and the Katherine “Kay” Baguio annual scholarship, with a portion donated to help victims of the fire.
