Philippine Weekend Gala Celebration a Success!

On behalf of the Philippine Weekend Gala Committee, we would like to thank everyone who helped make the Gala event a success! It was wonderful to see Philippine Weekend friends who traveled long distances and many of the locals finally gather together! Thank you! We would like to create a Gala album to commemorate the 40th, so for those of you who attended, please send your best Gala pictures to to be included in the Gala Book. Deadline to have your pictures included is July 17. Thanks again everyone!

Favorite Philippine Weekend Memory?

What’s your favorite Philippine Weekend memory? Was it last year when Jo Koy stopped by for a visit? Or maybe it was the year we had Pinoy Jam and One Voice performed? Maybe it’s the taste of ice cold Halo-Halo, the smell of Filipino BBQ in the air, or the sound of tinikling sticks clicking in the background? Whatever the memory, be it the relief from the heat in the Bingo hall or the excitement of the basketball tournament, Philippine Weekend has helped make memories for all of us over the last 40 years!

Come and share your favorite Philippine Weekend memories this Saturday, July 5th, at the Philippine Weekend Gala, to be held at the National Guard Armory. There will be delicious Filipino food, drinks, and door prizes! There will also be a slideshow presentation commemorating 40 years of Philippine Weekend!

Whether you are staying in town or coming home to visit for the 4th of July, come beat the heat and join us at the Armory on the 5th! Reserve your tickets now by calling or texting Arleen Villaruz-Gonzales at 661.343.3379.


Philippine Weekend Gala Celebration

Hey everyone! This is Arleen Villaruz-Gonzales, Co-Chair of the Philippine

Weekend GALA Committee and this event is coming in 9 DAYS!! On July 5th

everyone from Chairpersons to Grand Marshals to everyone to anyone who’s

worked with Philippine Weekend is invited to attend! Basic information is on

the flyer.


Just so you all know, the GALA is a celebration of the 40 years of Philippine

Weekend! It will begin with the SOCIAL HOUR (5-6:45) where you can reunite

with friends, talk about “the old days” take pictures (to post on Facebook and

Instagram!), listen to decades music, and enjoy Filipino hors d’oeuvres. The

program will include the Grand Marshals for 2014 being introduced and the

Founders will finally be recognized and will speak about the beginnings of

Philippine Weekend! We will all dine on a lovely Filipino dinner followed by

a “Tour of the Philippines,” a Filipino Dessert Bar with specialties made from

our very own local families!


This Event cannot happen without YOU! Come home to Philippine Weekend

but first, COME TO THE GALA!! (Meet up with your friends now so that

you can make plans to get together for Philippine Weekend!) Although it will

be “warm,” attire is semi-formal, Filipiniana, or casual NICE. Finally, dance

the night away to ANMProductionz! Be spontaneous! Bring your family and

friends to spend July 5th in Delano! Call me to reserve your tickets! (661)-343-
