Community Legacy – Pamana sa Komunidad
Saturday, December 13, 2014
Yerba Buena Gardens | Jessie Square | St. Patrick’s Church
Join us for our 12th Year, December 13, 2014! Let’s celebrate a memorable evening of lights and laughter! This year’s theme is “Pamana sa Kommunidad: Community Legacy.“ It’s about a lasting gift, forward-looking contribution or something that one feels proud to leave behind for the community. The theme coincides with celebrating the Legacy of Filipinos in San Francisco at the upcoming 10 year Anniversary of the Bayanihan Community Center & Filipino Community Center.
