Recap: Fil Am Heritage Day x San Jose Giants

On Sunday, September 1st, we — alongside the Pilipino Association of Workers and Immigrants (PAWIS), the Filipino Youth Coalition (FYC), UGAT Clothing, VST Customs, Akbayan SJSU, and Kawayan Folk Arts — were delighted to co-host a Fil Am Heritage Day with the San Jose Giants!

For the first ninety-minutes of the event, all Giants patrons and attendees could hear the stringed harmonies of Kawayan’s live Rondalla, witness Akbayan’s cultural dance performances of “Bulaklan” and “Tinolabong”, and enjoy the talents of acclaimed R&B Singer, Tracy Cruz, and Lyshia Mangulabnan, who sang the Philippines and U.S. national anthems, respectively.

Our team stood at the entrance gate, alongside DJ Mark Macala on the 1s and 2s, and helped distribute t-shirts and programs to supporting community members.

On the field, we were pleased to celebrate the first game’s pitches being thrown by community leaders with PAWIS and Uncle Ben Menor. (They threw some mean curveballs and change-ups.)
